Mavs: Fan removed after incident with Chris Paul ‘s family WGN Radio 720


DALAS (AP) – The Dallas Mavericks said they were aware of an incident between a fan and the family of Chris Paul of the Phoenix Suns during Sunday’s game of the Western Conference semifinal playoff round at the American Airlines Center.

ESPN reported that members of Paul’s family were harassed by fans and that some of the crowd came into physical contact with them.

“These were unacceptable behaviors and they will not tolerate them,” Mavericks said in a statement. “Mavericks along with the American Airlines Center quickly removed the fan from today’s game.”

After the game, Paul tweeted, “I want to fine the players for saying things to the fans, but fans can lend a hand to our families,” he added.

Immediately after the game, it was unclear what Paul was talking about when he tweeted that the player’s family was approached by fans. Journalists did not ask him about it after the game.

On Sunday, “Maurice” defeated “Suns” with a score of 111-101 and tied the score at 2-2 among the best of seven series. Paul dropped out of the game in the fourth quarter. Game 5 Tuesday night in Phoenix.
