MIAMI (AP) - Chicago center Joakim Noah is acknowledging saying “something” toward a fan during the first quarter of the Bulls’ Eastern Conference finals game in Miami on Sunday night.

Television cameras showed Noah exchanging words with someone near the Bulls bench. Noah appeared to use an obscenity in those remarks.

“I got caught up,” Noah said. “I don’t mean no disrespect to anybody.”

Noah picked up his second foul with 6:26 left in the opening quarter. Cameras remained on Noah as he went to the bench. The incident occurred after Noah sat down.

The NBA declined immediate comment. The Bulls lost to Miami 96-85, falling behind 2-1 in the series.
