The NBA likely will examine Atlanta guard Dejounte Murray’s conduct towards a video game authorities following Boston’s 129-121 success versus the Hawks in Video game 4 of their Eastern Conference series on Sunday.
At the conclusion of the video game, Murray approached referee Gediminas Petraitis, screamed something in his face and appeared to make physical contact.
Petraitis provided Murray a long appearance, and Murray, as he left the court, reversed and screamed once again. A Hawks gamer and staffer directed Murray off the court and towards the locker space.
Murray had 23 points, 9 rebounds and 6 helps. He was not offered to press reporters after the video game.
The Celtics lead the series 3-1, and Video game 5 is Tuesday (7:30 p.m. ET, TNT). Currently in a hard position, the Hawks can’t manage to lose Murray to a suspension in a removal video game. The winner of the series will play Philadelphia in the East semifinals.
