Jordan Poole was whistled in the fourth quarter for a flagrant technical foul Warriors lost 137-128 Tuesday night for the Oklahoma City Thunder.

NBA official Josh Tiven called a personal foul on Poole as he attempted to swipe the ball away from Thunder forward Jaylin Williams. When Poole bounced the basketball back to Tiven, the referee charged Poole with a technical foul, to the astonishment of everyone present at Paycom Center.

The Warriors’ teammates weren’t the only ones upset by the technical foul. Atlanta Hawks guard Trae Young, who had Tuesday night off, spoke on Twitter about the call.

Poole finished with 11 points on 4 of 12 shooting as the Warriors went 7–25 on the season. The fourth-quarter incident was Poole’s 12th technical foul of the season, the sixth most in the NBA and the second most on the Warriors behind Draymond Green (15).

NBA players and coaches are suspended without pay for one game after receiving their 16th technical foul of the season. This means Poole has three techniques remaining in the Warriors’ last 16 games.

The technical foul in Oklahoma City did not necessarily win the Warriors. There were other reasons for the loss, such as Golden State’s 21 turnovers. But it certainly didn’t help, as the Thunder found the basket on the ensuing possession and outscored the Warriors 28–22 the rest of the way.
