INTERVIEW CONDUCTED BY FRED KATZ (THE ATHLETIC) WITH CREW CHIEF JAMES WILLIAMS FOLLOWING TONIGHT’S SAN ANTONIO SPURS AT WASHINGTON WIZARDS GAME.
April 26, 2021
QUESTION: Why was there a technical foul called on Bradley Beal with 2:10 remaining in overtime?
WILLIAMS: “Bradley Beal was assessed a technical foul after a foul was whistled in Washington’s favor. He was assessed a respect for the game technical foul, because official Jacyn Goble saw him [Beal] wave off and direct profanity at another official. That is why he was given the respect for the game technical foul.”
