Postgame – New York at Milwaukee – December 27, 2018
NBA Crew Chief Brian Forte met with pool reporter Eric Nehm of the The Athletic after the game between the Knicks and Bucks tonight. Here is a transcript of that interview.
Q: Why was Enes (Kanter) ejected?
Forte: He was ejected for two technical fouls.
Q: Can you explain the double technical?
Forte: After the out-of-bounds foul, Giannis (Antetokounmpo) and (Enes) Kanter came face-to-face and so they were both assessed dead ball technical fouls.
Q: What did you see on the play where Giannis (Antetokounmpo) ended up on the floor?
Forte: During instant replay review for the altercation, we observed a unsportsmanlike act by Kanter and that is what led to his first technical foul.
