JANUARY 8, 2020
Question: What did you see on the play when LaMarcus Aldridge set a screen on Kemba Walker that sent him to the ground?
Mott: “In real-time, it’s a difficult play; but we deem the screen to be legal, as LaMarcus was set.”
Question: What led to the first technical foul being called on Kemba Walker?
Mott: “Per rule, Kemba Walker used profanity towards an official which led to the first technical foul.”
Question: What led to the second technical foul being called on Kemba Walker?
Mott: “The same. He continued to use profanity and was given a second technical foul and ejected.”
