The Pool Report interview was conducted by Chris Kirschner (The Athletic) with Crew Chief James Capers following tonight’s Hornets at Hawks game.
QUESTION: Why was Miles Bridges given his first technical foul?
CAPERS: Miles Bridges was given his first technical foul because he was upset about a no call at one end, followed by a personal foul and goaltend on the other end of the floor and he aggressively approached the official with a clenched fist.
QUESTION: What was the reason for his second technical foul and subsequent ejection?
CAPERS: He was ejected because he used profanity directed at the official and it was his second technical foul, by rule, that is an automatic ejection.
