But when he tried to take the ball, it flew backward into the fans and Jokic knocked Ishbia with his elbow; after several minutes of reviewing the incident, Jokic was assessed with a technical foul.
“The ball went over into the corner there and one of the fans was holding the ball. Jokic came to get the ball, grabbed it away from the fan, then after that he deliberately gave him a shove and pushed him down, so he was issued an unsportsmanlike technical foul.”Referee Tony Brothers said to a pool reporter.
