The Pool Report interview was conducted by Anthony Chiang (Miami Herald) with Crew Chief Courtney Kirkland following tonight’s Portland Trail Blazers at Miami Heat Game.
QUESTION: Was it Butler’s words or aggression that caused the first technical foul?
KIRKLAND: It was both. The aggressive manner in which he approached Mousa Dagher and the profanity that he yelled at him resulted in the first technical foul.
QUESTION: What was the reasoning for the second technical foul?
KIRKLAND: The second one was the fact that he yelled egregious profanity at Mousa, and that’s why he was given the second technical foul.
QUESTION: Why the immediacy of the second technical foul?
KIRKLAND: Because of the egregiousness of the profanity he yelled at Mousa.
