Dallas – The Dallas Mavericks said they are aware of an incident between a fan and the family of the Phoenix Suns’ Chris Paul during Sunday’s Western Conference semifinals playoff game at the American Airlines Center.

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

“It was unacceptable behavior and will not be tolerated,” the Mavericks said in a statement. “The Mavericks, along with the American Airlines Center, quickly removed the fan from today’s game.”

After the game, Paul tweeted: “I want to punish players for saying things to fans but fans can touch our families.” He also added an expletive.

Immediately after the game, it was unclear what Paul was addressing when he posted the tweet about a player’s family being approached by fans. He was not asked about it by reporters after the game.
