Pool Report on the Technical Foul called on Ed Davis and Foul by Terry Rozier in the Fourth Quarter of Today’s Cleveland Cavaliers at Charlotte Hornets Game

The Pool Report interview was conducted by Rod Boone (Charlotte Observer) with Crew Chief Brian Forte following tonight’s Cleveland Cavaliers at Charlotte Hornets Game

QUESTION: Why was Ed Davis called for a technical foul?

FORTE: Davis, who was located on the bench, reached over the boundary line and made contact with Rozier.

QUESTION: Was he thrown out of the game at first? Seemed like it was a continuation foul and that was the call initially.

FORTE: Correct. He was not thrown out of the game. The official made the signal with his arm that the basket was successful. He was never ejected.

QUESTION: Why were the Hornets rewarded with three points when the shot attempt that led to the technical came after the stoppage?

FORTE: It was miscommunication amongst the crew about the sequence of the play. Upon review after the game, the out of bounds was called prior to the start of the field goal attempt and the shot should not have counted.

QUESTION: What did you see on the final review where Kevin Love was awarded two free throws?

FORTE: The foul by Rozier occurred at 1.2 on the game clock after Love had started his shooting motion.
