ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - The father of the 12-year-old boy bumped by
Celtics big man Glen "Big Baby" Davis after Sunday's game-winning shot is demanding an apology.
Ernest Provetti told the Orlando Sentinel that he wrote the NBA office demanding an apology from Davis for acting like a "raging animal with no regard for fans' personal safety." NBA spokesman Tim Frank confirmed the league received the e-mail but declined to comment on it.
Video of the play shows Davis ducking behind a referee and stepping out of bounds as he ran back to the Celtics bench. Provetti told the paper it was his son, Nicholas, whose hat fell off as Davis bumped him.
Celtics spokesman Jeff Twiss said Davis was not available for comment. The Magic also declined to comment.
