Mavs' Chandler swats errant shoe against Warriors

DALLAS (AP) Tyson Chandler drew the biggest roar of the day from a quiet Dallas crowd when he swatted Marreese Speights' errant shoe out of midair while Golden State teammate Stephen Curry was trying to toss it to his center.

Speights' shoe came off when he was trying to make a move with the ball on offense Saturday. The shoe was tossed toward midcourt to get it out of the way as the possession continued and stayed there through a trip to Dallas' offensive end.

As the teams were heading back down the court, Curry grabbed the shoe and tossed it toward Speights. But Chandler changed direction and batted the shoe with his left hand toward the sideline, causing Curry to gesture toward a referee.
