Postgame – Oklahoma City Thunder at Indiana Pacers
NBA Crew Chief Scott Foster met with pool reporter Scott Agness of the Athletic after the game between the Thunder and Pacers. Here is a transcript of that interview.
Why was the foul committed by Dennis Schroder with 3:37 in the fourth quarter on Domantas Sabonis reviewed?
“Any time we have a foul we want to look to see if it meets the criteria for a flagrant foul. We have a trigger from replay that we go and look at it and that was the trigger to get us to replay.”
What determined that the foul was changed to a Flagrant 1 foul after review?
“The officials who reviewed the play on the floor deemed that there was a flail to the face that was deemed unnecessary which is the definition of a Flagrant Foul Penalty 1.”
