INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- The trial for Golden State's Stephen Jackson -- accused of firing a gun during a fight at an Indianapolis strip club -- has been delayed a second time and is now set for June 21st.

Prosecutors objected but a judge yesterday granted a defense motion to postpone the trial.

In April, the trial was moved to May 10th.

The Warriors play their second game in the N-B-A's Western Conference semifinals tonight against Utah in Salt Lake City, after losing the opener to the Jazz on Monday.

Jackson pleaded NOT guilty to a felony charge of criminal recklessness and misdemeanor counts of battery and disorderly conduct for his role in a fight outside Club Rio in October, when he was playing for the Indiana Pacers.

Jackson says he fired shots in the air with his pistol to try to break up the fight.

The criminal recklessness charge carries a prison term of six months to three years.

At the time of the Club Rio fight, Jackson was on probation for his role in a 2004 brawl between Pacers players and Detroit Pistons fans.
