Jason Terry had an ugly moment at the Mavericks bench in the second quarter of Friday’s game, exchanging words with Rick Carlisle and teammate Jose Barea. Eddie Sefko has the rundown:
It started with Terry getting the ball taken away that led to a Clippers’ bucket.
Upon the following inbounds pass, he rolled the ball toward Barea and Barea clearly wasn’t happy with the way the ball was delivered to him.
The Mavericks called a timeout and when Terry got to the bench, Barea was yelling at him. Soon, Terry was yelling back and several assistant coaches and players intervened.
Then coach Rick Carlisle got involved and clearly wasn’t happy with what was transpiring. It looked like Carlisle was motioning Terry to leave the bench area. Terry took a seat at the far end of the bench and players and assistant coaches continued to talk to him and keep him away from the main huddle.
Terry has not returned to the game.
