That’s a rap

The Jazz beat the Mavericks on Monday thanks to being able to beat Dallas at its own game: When the Mavs got physical, so did the Jazz — only better.

Dallas center Chris Kaman was called for a flagrant foul when he dragged Al Jefferson to the ground after hooking him around the neck.

However, Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle said in postgame interviews that the Jazz won by "thugging it up."

Told of that message Tuesday, Tyrone Corbin said he had "no thoughts."

His backup point guard, however, had one on Carlisle.

"I think [he’s been] listening to too much rap music," Earl Watson said.

"Thuggin It Up" is a 1996 hip hop single by MC Eiht.

"I think they [the Mavericks] was a physical team first," Watson said. "I think we had a lot of players hit the ground hard. It was all good fouls, no one was dirty, maybe the Kaman foul around Al’s neck. I don’t know what he did, but it didn’t look right. That would have been the only dirty play of the game."
