Damian Lillard says NBA officiating has been ‘unacceptable’

After last night's loss to the Clippers, Damian Lillard said, "I feel like the way the game is being officiated is unacceptable. I felt like, coming in, the rule change wouldn't affect me cause I don't trick the referees. I don't do the trick plays... It's unacceptable."

ANALYSIS: Lillard is off to one of the worst starts of his NBA career for the 5-6 Portland Trail Blazers, averaging just 19.5 points per game on 37% shooting from the field, though he has been dealing with an injury.

Lillard is currently averaging a career-low 3.2 free throw attempts after attempting 7.2 per game over the last five seasons, which lends some credence to his complaints.
