Kidd spills the truth

 

Jason Kidd said he was just “trying to win” when he intentionally spilled a drink on the court, a stunt that cost him $50,000. The Brooklyn Nets coach was fined Thursday, with the NBA saying he intentionally spilled his drink as a stall tactic. He tried to avoid talking about it Friday, but when pressed, he relented. “(Nets’) Paul (Pierce) got a great look, but the league fined me for something that I probably shouldn’t have done,” he said. Kidd bumped into Nets reserve Tyshawn Taylor with 8.3 seconds left on Wednesday against the Lakers, causing his drink to spill. A video showed Kidd seeming to ask Taylor to “hit me” as the guard walked toward the bench. The Nets had time to draw up a play while the floor was cleaned after the spill but still lost 99-94. – AP
