NEW YORK (AP) -The NBA has spoken with the Los Angeles Lakers about a comment coach Phil Jackson made following Tuesday night's game in San Antonio.
The Spurs made 13 3-pointers in their 107-92 victory, and Jackson was asked if too much penetration was leading to open outside shooters.
``We call this a 'Brokeback Mountain' game, because there's so much penetration and kickouts,'' Jackson said. ``It was one of those games.''
``The remarks are in poor taste, and the Lakers have assured us such remarks will not occur in the future,'' league spokesman Brian McIntyre said.
