QUESTION: WHY WAS DRAYMOND GREEN ASSESSED A SECOND TECHNICAL FOUL WITH 1:04 REMAINING IN THE SECOND QUARTER?
TAYLOR: “Green received his second technical foul for profanity that was deemed to be directed at the official.”

TAYLOR: “Yes it was.”
QUESTION: DID YOU CONSIDER RESCINDING THE SECOND TECHNICAL FOUL AFTER HEARING THEIR EXPLANATION?
