Kidd explained what happened to the New York Post's Tim Bontemps after the game: 

Video shows that Kidd may have said, "Hit me," asking Taylor to bump him intentionally, as it was prior to a crucial free throw in a two-point game with the Nets out of timeouts. 

Update: Thursday, November 28, 7:12 p.m. ET

According to Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski, Kidd will be fined $50,000 for his dropped cup.

Kidd denied dropping the cup intentionally, according to ESPN, saying it "slipped out" of his hand.
