BOSTON (AP) — An arrest has been made in a stabbing during an NBA game between the Boston Celtics and Memphis Grizzlies in Massachusetts.

Authorities in Braintree say the man was arrested Thursday afternoon during a traffic stop.

The suspect has been identified as 20-year-old Brandon Jones, of Braintree. Braintree police say he's charged with assault and battery.

Authorities say the victim was stabbed Wednesday night at TD Garden during a fight between fans in a balcony just before the end of the Celtics' 95-92 victory. Police say the victim was taken to a hospital with injuries that weren't considered life-threatening.

Braintree police Lt. Michael Moschella says officers found the suspect after Boston police sent out a description of him.

It's unclear if Jones has a lawyer. His arraignment is scheduled for Friday.
