But there are some accusations flying around that J-Rich got physical with a fan in Dallas last night.
He had taken a three-pointer from the left corner with 21.9 seconds left, and Dallas forward Dirk Nowitzki, contesting the attempt, collided with Richardson, sending him flying into the first row of fans.Beyond the Nelson-Cuban feud, there seems to be tons of bad blood between these two franchises. The mild-mannered Richardson is not someone you'd expect would get wrapped up in extracurricular activity. But who knows? This series has driven everyone mad.
Some in the Dallas organization were saying the fan helped Richardson up, and Richardson responded by shoving and cursing at the fan. Richardson denied the situation happened that way but declined to otherwise comment, except to say, "Check the tape."
According to the Mavericks, there was no videotape of the incident.
