INTERVIEW CONDUCTED BY DUANE RANKIN (THE ARIZONA REPUBLIC) WITH CREW CHIEF KANE FITZGERALD FOLLOWING TONIGHT’S MINNESOTA TIMBERWOLVES VS. PHOENIX SUNS GAME
March 19, 2021
QUESTION: Why was Monty Williams assessed the first technical foul?
FITZGERALD: “During the timeout Monty came out to complain about the officiating and received a warning. He continued to complain after the warning and that’s when he got his first technical foul.”
QUESTION: Why was Monty Williams given the second technical foul with 7:17 left in the first half?
FITZGERALD: “After walking away it looks like he decided to continue to complain again and kind of came after the official towards mid court and that was enough to get ejected with his second technical foul.”
