We'll See Jason Terry in Game 7
From the Dallas Morning News:
According to film submitted to the league by the Spurs, Terry clearly punched Finley in his groin area.
San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich said there was no doubt about Terry’s intent.
“Oh, yeah,” he said, when asked if the punch was intentional. “I don’t think someone gravitates toward that area randomly with their fist when you’re laying on the ground.
“I was a little surprised. I didn’t see any of that on the court. I saw Michael Finley jump up and be very angry at the end of the game. He kind of moved toward Jason. I didn’t know what the deal was. And then somebody brought us the film later. And we saw him punch him between the legs. I was just amazed by it.”
Terry’s suspension will be without pay and will be a huge loss for the Mavericks. He is the Mavericks’ second-leading scorer at 18.2 points per game in the series against the Spurs, which the Mavericks lead 3-2.
If they can’t close the series Friday at home, Terry would return in Game 7 on Monday in San Antonio.
