An ESPN was told by NBA league spokesperson that the Brooklyn Nets safety officer, for making contact with Milwaukee Bucks forward P. J. Tucker in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals, will be responsible for the series exclution from Milwaukee arena for the games remaining.
A spokesperson said that the fourth game of the semifinals will be played on Sunday at ABC in Milwaukee. The Nets lead the series 2-1. The incident occurred at 4:21 before the end of the third game. Milwaukee won 86-83 on the Fiserv Forum on Thursday. At the time, Tucker and Kevin Durant were long-time friends and partners of the University of Texas basketball program.
After Tucker fouled Durant, both players won the technical fouls. The possession time after the free throw is a security guard hired by the Nets, but since signing, he has been working in a similar position with Durant. Security guards often try to separate this situation from the game. What makes him stand out is contact. The referee net caught the opposing player.
Bucks forward Bobby Portis expressed some understanding of the outcome of the matter. However, Portis said that while it is “great” for the guard and Nets players behind Durant to appear on the street in a hostile environment, the guard “may cross the line of defense.
As for the Bucks, “Jrue Holiday explained that who said he knew Durant’s bodyguard, although he sympathized with the security guard trying to get the job done, his role was to focus on basketball, not to worry about the bodyguard doing this or not acting in his own way. “That guy shook PJ is also a big man, so I don’t know how you can slide down without touching anyone, but yes, man, that’s what I think the league has to deal with. The team has to deal with it. It’s not really my job, I really don’t know how it works.”
