Jeremy Lin didn’t have a problem with his team taking 3-point shots — presumably in attempt to set the NBA record — late in the fourth quarter of Tuesday’s 140-109 win over the Warriors. But he did think teammate Patrick Beverly went too far after a dunk late in the game. Beverley had driven past the Warriors, who were finally defending the 3-point line, for a dunk with 1:04 left and then stared down the Golden State bench. Beverly was called for a technical for taunting. He was later fouled hard by Green, which led to a confrontation between Green and Marcus Morris who were both ejected. “The only thing I think we need to apologize for was just the reaction after the dunk,” Lin told the San Jose Mercury News. “To be honest, that wasn’t totally classy on our behalf.” It will all make for a fun rematch next Tuesday when Houston is at Golden State.
