Charles F Gardner: Wild finish at Bradley Center and security and police all over halls after game. Bucks players escorted O.J. Mayo to his car, source said.
Bucks guard Jerryd Bayless, who reportedly was involved in the postgame hallway exchange, would not say whether he was involved in the jawing with Cousins. “I don’t know,” Bayless said. “I wasn’t really paying any attention.” Bayless chalked it up to the heat of competition. “It happens. You move on,” Bayless said.
