5 Techs Called During Chippy 1st Half Between Bucks And Suns
Midway through the first quarter of the Bucks and Suns afternoon game (I’m sure that was a hot ticket), The Greek Freak Giannis Antetokounmpo and Baby Amar’e Marquese Chriss got into a baby scuffle after Chriss fouled Giannis and the two got tangled up on the way to the ground. Giannis was given a tech for pushing Chriss with those abnormally large hands.
Later in the first half, Eric Bledsoe and Bucks Coach Jason Kidd received double techs for exchanging some words, which Bledsoe later said was, “nothing personal.”
Less than a minute after those techs, the refs gave out techs #4 and #5 to Khris Middleton and Devin Booker for a little scuffle in the exact same spot as Antetokounmpo and Chriss.
The Bucks would go on to win the game thanks to a 28-point dunk exhibition by Giannis.
