DALLAS -- Dallas Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle said he suspended guard Delonte West after Monday night's home game against the Houston Rockets for "conduct detrimental to the team.''
West apparently was involved in an ugly outburst in the locker room after the Mavs' 123-104 win over Houston. West played 17 minutes and scored two points in the game.
A few hours after the suspension, West took to Twitter to issue an apparent apology.
In his first tweet, West wrote: "Sorry moma.''
In a followup tweet two minutes later, West wrote: "I showed off on ur birthday again...''
By Tuesday morning, those tweets have since been deleted.
