Postgame – Portland Trail Blazers at Washington Wizards
NBA Crew Chief Mark Ayotte met with pool reporter Fred Katz of The Athletic after the game between the Trail Blazers and Wizards tonight. Here is a transcript of that interview:
What specific actions did Marat Kogut eject Isaiah Thomas for in the first quarter?
“He made physical contact with a referee.”
Was it anything to do with a push, with the contact, or was it just the contact from coming over with the player?
“It was definitely just a push during the dead ball contact with the referee.”
