Fans are not happy with an NBA referee who gave Jordan Poole a very questionable technical foul. The call went viral online, causing a flood of reactions from basketball followers.

The tech came in the Warriors’ most recent matchup against the Thunder. We’ll let you be the judge on whether or not Poole deserved it.

Early in the fourth quarter of action, Golden State trailed Oklahoma City by a score of 109-106. Despite being at a crucial point in the contest, a member of the officiating crew opted to “T” Poole up.

Fans and commentators were confused by the technical, as the replay seemed to show Jordan Poole simply passing the ball back to the referee after the whistle. Poole, himself, was also in disbelief.

Take a look.

Many were quick to comment on the questionable call after the fact. Here was some of the immediate response on social media.

Some went as far as to say that the crew needs to be investigated.

Others just called the referee “soft.”

The technical foul was just one moment in a forgettable night for Jordan Poole. He was also involved in a play that saw Draymond Green walk off the court because Poole didn’t pass him the ball.

With the loss, the Warriors fell to 34-32 on the season. They currently sit in sixth place in the Western Conference standings, while trailing the Kings by five games in the division.
