Jason Terry freaks out on Mavs bench

It was a drama-filled second quarter with Jason Terry getting in the face of teammate J.J. Barea during a timeout and then coach Rick Carlisle emphatically pointing at Terry seated on the bench before tossing Terry out of the huddle.

Terry angrily removed himself to a seat at the end of the bench where owner Mark Cuban quickly met him and began trying to cool him down. Cuban again spoke with Cuban on the court during the next timeout. This all transpired at the 9:54 mark of the second quarter with the Mavs trailing the Los Angeles Clippers, 39-25. Terry remained planted at the end of the bench the rest of the way while his teammates clawed back from an embarrassing first quarter in which L.A. scored 35 points and led by 16.
