Chris Paul vs. Scott Foster

In the second quarter things didn’t go as planned for Paul who got called for a foul by Foster and then Paul started to talk to Foster and question the call and Paul received his first technical foul questioning the call by Foster. Then a couple seconds later he was still talking with Foster and it looked like Foster had enough with Paul so he decided to throw out Paul from the game.
