DALLAS -- A New England Patroits fan set off the fire alarm at the Pittsburgh Steelers’ team hotel in Boston around 3 a.m. Sunday.

It turned out to be a false alarm., but it did wake up everyone in the hotel.

Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, who grew up in Pittsburgh and is a devout fan of the Steelers, believes he knows who the culprit was.

"The shocking part is they didn’t catch (Patroits coach Bill) Belichick,’’ Cuban said prior to Sunday’s Los Angeles Lakers-Mavs game at American Airlines Center. "Coach doesn’t move as fast as he used to.

"But I guess that’s why he wears a hoodie.’’

Actually, according to Mass.com, the police arrested East Boston’s Dennis Harrison, and identified him as the person who ultimately pulled the fire alarm.

The Steelers and Patriots will set to play the AFC Championship game Sunday at 6:40 p.m. EST.

Mavericks owner Mark Cuban said this 0-5 start by the Mavs is too early to compare with similar starts in previous seasons.
