NBA officials have drawn the ire of the Knicks as of late.

Julius Randle was called for a technical foul on Tuesday during the Knicks’ loss to the Brooklyn Nets. The technical foul was assessed late in the game as Randle was complaining about fouls.

Randle said later he wasn’t getting calls because he was too strong.
