A New York Knicks fan was caught on camera spitting on Trae Young of the Atlanta Hawks during Game 2 of the first round of the NBA playoffs last night at Madison Square Garden:

The Knicks have banned the fan from the Garden “indefinitely” and have “turned the information over to the appropriate authorities”:

Of note, NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio ratcheted up the rhetoric against Young at a news conference earlier this week after the Knicks lost to the Hawks in Game 1:

De Blasio’s comments came *after* Knicks fans chanted “F*ck Trae Young” throughout the game which didn’t seem to bother the mayor:

Last night’s chant was changed to “Trae is balding”:

And here are fans celebrating last night’s victory:

Well, Game 3 should be interesting.
