The Dallas Mavericks have been asked by the NBA for the third time in the current postseason for their behavior on the bench to the cash register. After $ 25,000 and $ 50,000, the punishment was doubled again, so that the Texans now have to shell out $ 100,000. The league announced this on Sunday.
After two offenses in the previous series against the Phoenix Suns, the members of the team had not adhered to the rules, according to the statement, in the bitter defeat in game 2 at the Golden State Warriors. In addition to several players, a member of the coaching staff stood in the bank for a longer period of time and even moved away from the bank and stood in the field during the game.
“It is the league’s decision to express a punishment, but we will not sit down and continue to cheer on the players,” said Mavs Head coach Jason Kidd before game 3 when the punishment was not yet official. Already after the first punishment he said: “The league takes care of the wrong things. Millionaire Feuer is a millionaire. The enthusiasm is special, that’s what sport is about.”
In game 2 against Golden State there was even a scene in which Stephen Curry wanted to play the ball for Dallas’ Two-Way player Theo Pinson, who stood next to the bank in a white sweater and thus confused the Warriors jersey similar saw. The situation was similar with the injured Tim Hardaway Jr. “We try everything to help our teammates,” Pinson recently told ESPN. “We cause a mental problem for the opponent.”
Steve Kerr, Head Coach of the Warriors, said about the topic: “It doesn’t bother me as long as you don’t intervene in the game. I love that your bank brings energy, runs Trash Talk and is full. The fans want to see that. The fans want a team to take care of each other. I love it, but when the game is intervened, a red line is exceeded. “
