Gordon Hayward said the technical fouls were the products of not only heated moments on the floor, but also the cumulative effect of losing eight of 10 games. Marvin Williams and Enes Kanter were both called for technical fouls in the second half when Hasheem Thabeet fouled Hayward hard in the lane, and Hayward was later called for a technical of his own.
"There were some technicals that probably shouldn’t have been called," he said, "but I think they [the referees] just didn’t want the game to get out of hand."
Paul Millsap leads the Jazz with five technical fouls, well off the leaders. Kobe Bryant is No. 1 in the NBA with 14. Coach Tyrone Corbin is tied for second among coaches with five, as well.
