Blazers G Nolan Smith explains Sebastian Telfair's late ejection: "Times get chippy... Attitudes are flaring, of course when I get in and Elliot and us get in we're going to play hard. Get after you, get under you, and they didn't like that... It happens. He plays hard, some words were said, it happens... He had already been kind of mad the whole game. I think he did some things to Nic earlier and was kind of pushing everybody around. When I got in, he didn't still want to be pushed around." Sulia

Beaubois’ level of toughness was questioned Monday night when Phoenix Suns guard Sebastian Telfair clobbered him on a fastbreak attempt early in the third period. Telfair was assessed a Flagrant 2 foul and ejected from the game, while Beaubois picked himself up off the floor and calmly sank the ensuing two free throws to give the Mavs an 86-74 lead. “The Flagrant 2 play was a massive play in the game – a big momentum play,’’ Carlisle said. “I thought (Beaubois) showed toughness, he showed resolve, he continued to concentrate. “He’s more and more coming to the realization that his game is predicated on the defensive end first, and that’s what’s going to bring us success this year.’’ Fort Worth Star-Telegram

Sebastian Telfair has received interest from the New York Knicks, Utah Jazz and Los Angeles Lakers, according to sources. Telfair is excited for free agency because he’ll be able to choose his next destination, which hasn’t been the case early in his career. Since entering the league, Telfair has been traded multiple times, usually midseason. In fact, he hasn’t played with the same team for more than two seasons at a time and he’s had nine different head coaches. If Telfair lands in the right situation, with some structure, he could still be a significant contributor. HoopsWorld
