MIAMI — Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah apologized again Monday for directing an anti-gay slur at a Miami Heat fan during Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals and was bracing for punishment - likely a large fine - from the NBA.

“The fan said something that was disrespectful towards me,” Noah said. “And I went back at him. Got it on camera. I don’t want to hurt anybody’s feelings. Anybody who knows me knows that I’m not like that. I’m an open-minded guy. I said the wrong thing and I’m going to pay the consequences.”

The Heat won Sunday’s game 96-85, taking a 2-1 lead in the best-of-seven series. Game 4 is Tuesday night in Miami.
