Former Dallas coach Dick Motta has picked up a couple of technicals for his reactions to the inconsistent foul calling in pre-season. When asked what he said to get a T in Wednesday night’s game, Motta said, “Nothing. I only say the proper things, and that bothers them (the refs).”

He picked up another T for encouraging the fans who were booing all the calls (whether the foul was against Dallas or Indiana). Motta, who has been out of the league for 3 years: “He (ref Billy Oakes) came up and said, ‘You know, technicals aren’t $25 anymore’.”
