Brooklyn Nets assistant coach fined $  10,000 for deflecting pass during NBA game against Washington Wizards

布鲁克林篮网 assistant coach David Vanterpool has been fined $ 10,000 for deflecting a pass during the NBA game against the Washington Wizards.

用 5:42 remaining in the fourth quarter in the game at the Capital One Arena on Wednesday and with the Nets leading 109-103, Vanterpool reached out onto the 法庭 from the bench and deflected a pass from Wizards guard Spencer Dinwiddie to Kyle Kuzma.
The incident caused the Wizards to lose the ball and the officials missed the incident, something referee crew chief Ben Taylor 已确认 in the pool report after the game.
    It resulted in a chaotic few minutes as Washington players expressed their anger at the officials. The team had already used their coach’s challenge so the Wizards could not contest the decision.

            That was also horses**t too. Coaches should not be able to stand up. I get it if it’s under two minutes. Everybody in the league stands upYou’ve got Steve Nash blocking the ref’s view. He can’t see s**t. 我不知道该说些什么. It’s very unfortunate but you’ve got to just live with it.
            Neither Vanterpool or the Nets have commented on the incident or the fine and the team didn’t immediately respond to CNN’s request for comment.
