The Charlotte Hornets defeated the Dallas Mavericks on Friday night, and head coach Jason Kidd didn’t hold the supporters responsible for the jeers from the crowd.

The Dallas Mavericks just lost a game against the Golden State Warriors and filed a protest because of a contentious play that they believe the refs misread. The Mavericks may not be able to afford to lose any more games in the remaining weeks of the regular season if they hope to at least qualify for the play-in round of the playoffs and at most, make the playoffs.

Jason Kidd didn’t fault Mavericks fans for booing during loss to Hornets

While Kidd didn’t fault the fans for voicing their displeasure, Kyrie Irving took a different stance, suggesting that fans should try playing.

“I’ve been in New York City, so I know what that’s like,” said Irving, per ESPN. “You obviously want to play well, but it’s only five people on the court that can play for the Dallas Mavericks. If the fans wanna change places, then hey, be my guest. Got years of work ahead to be great enough to be on this level.”
