The Pool Report interview was conducted by Josh Robbins (The Athletic) with Crew Chief Ben Taylor following tonight’s Brooklyn Nets at Washington Wizards game.
QUESTION: It appeared on replay that a Nets assistant coach deflected a Wizards pass attempt with 5:45 remaining in the fourth quarter, leading to a turnover – a live-ball turnover. Given that the ball did not go out of bounds, preventing a play stoppage, was there any mechanism for that play to be reviewed?
TAYLOR: No, there wasn’t a mechanism in place for that.
QUESTION: Is it correct that you and your colleagues didn’t see any deflection there on the play?
TAYLOR: No, on the floor we did not.
