I said earlier on Tuesday that the double technical foul handed out to Russell Westbrook and Patrick Beverley during Game 5 of the Houston Rockets and Oklahoma City Thunder series was the weakest of the playoffs so far.
All I had to do was wait about two hours. The NBA fixed that right up for me.
Hayward and Paul wrestled for the ball, with Hayward eventually winning. Paul then gave him a little shove in the back. Both, somehow, wound up with a technical foul.
I … what?
Utah won an exciting game at the wire, 96-92, to take a 3-2 series lead.
