A fan who spat on Atlanta Hawks guard Trae Young during Game 2 of the Eastern Conference first-round playoff match against the New York Knicks on Wednesday will be banned from Madison Square Garden, the Knicks announced.
Young was inbounding the ball with eight minutes left in the fourth quarter when video showed a fan in the second row spat on Young.
"We investigated the matter and determined that this patron, who is not a season ticket holder, did indeed spit on Trae Young and for that reason, he is now banned from the Garden indefinitely," the team said in a statement. "We apologize to Trae and the entire Atlanta Hawks organization for this fan's behavior. This was completely unacceptable and will not be tolerated in our venue. We have turned the information over to the appropriate authorities."
