Vince Carter suspended on game for elbow to Adams

The NBA suspended Vince Carter for one game for throwing an elbow at Steven Adams in Wednesday night’s loss to the Thunder, the league office announced Friday.

After a review, Carter was handed a Flagrant 2 and was ejected from the game while Adams received a technical.

Carter was extremely apologetic after the game:

“More than anything, there’s a lot of people watching the game of basketball and they want to clean that stuff up because it’s not needed,” Carter said. “You hate to see it. That’s why I wanted to apologize to all fans and all the people watching.

“It was just a reaction. It was just one of those things where you get caught in the moment playing in a big game, in a battle. It does happen, but sometimes when you do something like that, you just wish you can take it back.”
