He said he was targeting an Atlanta Hawks fan, adding: "I was aiming for the guy that was screaming at me and ... it hit a little girl."

"That's definitely unacceptable on my part, and I take full responsibility. I'm ready for any consequence that the NBA gives me."

"That's on me. That's out of character for me. You've been around me, you know I don't act like that or never flash out like that. So that was definitely wrong, a lot of emotions."

"Hopefully I can get in contact with the young girl and sincerely apologize to her."

"The Hornets forward amassed two technical fouls and was eventually ejected in the fourth quarter after he passionately protested a goaltending call."

"While Bridges was walking off the court and towards the locker room, a Hawks fan appeared to yell in his direction and the player responded by throwing his mouthguard,"

"Bridges could face additional penalties for his behavior, according to the official NBA website."
