Pool Report on the Technical Fouls called at the end of the First Half of tonight’s Houston Rockets at Oklahoma City Thunder Game  

The Pool Report interview was conducted by Cliff Brunt (Associated Press) with Crew Chief Josh Tiven following tonight’s Rockets at Thunder Game.     


QUESTION:  Why were technical fouls called against Houston’s Jabari Smith Jr. and Houston coach Ime Udoka with 57.7 seconds left in the first half?

TIVEN:  Jabari received his technical foul for comments that he made that directly questioned the integrity of the officiating crew. Ime’s technical foul was for profanity that was directed towards the officiating crew.
