D’Angelo Russell gets technical foul for clapping on bench (Video)

D’Angelo Russell managed to get a technical foul while wearing street clothes during the Nets’ game against the Knicks.

During the third quarter of Monday’s game, Russell, who is recovering from a knee injury, earned himself a technical foul while sitting on the bench in jeans and a blazer. While Enes Kanter was at the free-throw line, Russell clapped his hands in the direction of referee Brian Forte, who assessed the foul.

The ensuing free-throw by Courtney Lee tied a Knicks record for consecutive made free-throws.

Russell, in his first season with the Nets, underwent knee surgery in November. No timetable has been set for Russell’s return, although he did practice with the team’s G League affiliate on Monday. In 12 games this season, Russell averaged 20.9 points, 4.7 rebounds, and 5.7 assists.
