PORTLAND, OR (AP)  Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban says he was struck in the face by an unknown object during Thursday night’s playoff game against the Portland Trail Blazers.

Cuban told reporters afterward he did not know what the object was, and he was unhurt by it. He also praised the security at the Rose Garden.

Cuban, who was sitting in the crowd behind the Mavericks’ bench, was interacting with fans who were booing him late in the game.

The Trail Blazers won 97-92. Dallas leads the first-round playoff series two games to one.
