The Pool Report interview was conducted by Vinny Benedetto (Colorado Springs Gazette) with Crew Chief Scott Foster following tonight’s Raptors and Nuggets Game.
QUESTION: What did the officials see during the challenge to overturn the Nikola Jokic foul on Scottie Barnes during the review?
Foster: The initial contact by Jokic was to the ball as well as the hand that was in contact with the ball at the same time and by NBA guidelines, that is not a foul.
QUESTION: Why was Scottie Barnes ejected at the end of the game?
FOSTER: He was ejected on one technical foul because he used verbiage that which directly questioned the integrity of the crew.
