This story has been corrected. Read below.

Spurs guard Patty Mills was subjected to racially insensitive taunts Sunday during San Antonio's road game in Cleveland.

Mills took to Twitter late Sunday night to respond to a fan who posted a video clip of the incident, saying that he hoped to "enlighten this confused, hateful fan."

"We are looking into it to see if an identification is possible," a Cavaliers spokesman told ESPN on Monday.

Cavaliers security has various resources it will mine, including video monitoring and word-of-mouth interviews with people sitting in the area behind the basket.

The incident occurred late in the fourth quarter of San Antonio's 110-94 victory Sunday afternoon over the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Mills was at the free throw line with 2:29 remaining in the contest when the fan could be heard yelling, "Hey Jamaica called, they want their bobsledder back. Hey Mills, Jamaica just called, they want their bobsledder back!"

Mills, a native of Australia who is black, was not asked about the taunts after the game. His father is a Torres Strait Islander, and his mother is an Aboriginal Australian.

ESPN's Dave McMenamin contributed to this report.

In a Feb. 25 ESPN.com story, the choice of words a fan said to Patty Mills was unclear. After further investigation, the fans said "Hey Jamaica called" twice to Mills.
