Chris Paul, Mike D’Antoni both hit with technicals for arguing non-call
Tempers flared for the Houston Rockets late in the third quarter of their game against the Golden State Warriors on Sunday, and Chris Paul and Mike D’Antoni picked up technical fouls because of it.
Paul hit a big three-pointer with less than a minute left in the third to cut Golden State’s lead to five, and he felt like he was fouled on the shot. He waved his hands in the direction of the official to express his frustration with the non-call, and he was immediately hit with a technical.

D’Antoni agreed with CP3, and he became even more animated over the non-call that Paul was. That resulted in the Rockets coach also receiving a technical, which allowed Golden State to end the third quarter on a high note.
It looked like there was some contact on Paul’s shot, but he stuck his hip way out to create it. It’s no surprise he didn’t get the call, especially on the road.
