Jordan Bell broke his silence and told his side of this bizarre #CandleGate story on Friday morning,

In case you missed it, Bell served a one game suspension Wednesday against the Grizzlies for "conduct detrimental to the team". It was later revealed that Bell had made charges to associate head coach Mike Brown's hotel room without Brown's knowledge.

Speaking to NBC Sports Bay Area's Logan Murdock, Bell offered his thoughts:

"I made an error of judgment and I thought I was doing something funny, and it wasn't. But I apologized to the individuals involved, and I hope to continue to move forward from this mistake."

"I think we're all good. I think everybody knows it was something I thought would be funny, as a joke that turned out not to be the way someone else took it, as a joke."

Head coach Steve Kerr was not willing to speak on the matter on Thursday when he joined "The Damon Bruce Show" on 95.7 The Game.

Bell is ready to move forward from this fiasco and is available to play beginning Friday against the Timberwolves.
