Can we stop giving guys techs for stare downs…it’s stupid and takes away from the game. Happened again tonight with Ant. Yall want guys to compete and play with an edge. It’s all passion nothing personal. Stop that Bs.

Anthony Edwards destroys Dario Saric on a dunk, then gets hit with a No Boisterousness Allowed tech. And you thought it stood for National Basketball Association…
