POOL REPORT ON THE FLAGRANT FOUL 2 AND EJECTION OF LAC’S MARCUS MORRIS, SR. IN TONIGHT’S MAVERICKS/CLIPPERS GAME
INTERVIEW CONDUCTED BY TIM MACMAHON (ESPN.COM) WITH CREW CHIEF SCOTT FOSTER FOLLOWING TONIGHT’S DALLAS MAVERICKS VS. LA CLIPPERS GAME.
August 30, 2020
QUESTION: WHAT DID YOU SEE ON THE PLAY THAT RESULTED IN THE FLAGRANT FOUL 2 ON MORRIS?
FOSTER: “During the replay review we saw a wind up, impact and follow through to the head and neck area of Doncic. By our standards that is unnecessary and excessive contact which by definition is a Flagrant Foul Penalty 2.”
QUESTION: DOC RIVERS INDICATED IN HIS ESPN SIDELINE INTERVIEW THAT HE BELIEVED MORRIS’ REPUTATION PLAYED A ROLE IN THE EJECTION. WAS MORRIS’ REPUATION OR HIS PREVIOUS TENSION WITH DONCIC IN THIS SERIES CONSIDERED?
FOSTER: “No. Of course not.”
