The Boston Celtics are on a roll as of late, winning their last seven games en route to an 11-3 record – the best mark in the NBA. However, in their most recent win over the Oklahoma City Thunder, Jayson Tatum picked up a technical foul that a lot of people disagreed with.

Early in the second quarter, he clapped in frustration after missing a layup and committing a foul on the other end, earning himself a tech. After the game, he liked a tweet mocking the incident.

“These folks just be giving @jaytatum0 Techs for being so cool… that gotta be it,” the tweet read.

The technical was not received well by Tatum, nor anyone else around the league. Brooklyn Nets star Kevin Durant tweeted about the incident, stating that it was one of the worst techs he’s ever seen.

“Jayson tatum just received the worst tech I’ve seen in the nba in a while. I’m actually laughing,” Durant tweeted.

Memphis Grizzlies star Ja Morant agreed with Durant, quote-tweeting his message.

Tatum was able to help lead the Celtics to a comeback win over the Thunder despite the early tech. He finished the night with 27 points, 10 rebounds, and an assist on 9-of-23 shooting from the field and 1-of-9 shooting from distance. Tatum also notched three steals and three blocks on the night.

NBA Makes New Decision on Tatum Tech

While the technical foul initially went on Tatum’s record, it didn’t stay there for long. According to Gary Washburn of The Boston Globe, the NBA will be rescinding the technical foul on Tatum.

“The @NBA is rescinding Jayson Tatum’s technical foul from last night, the hand clap called by John Goble, according to an NBA source. #Celtics,” Washburn tweeted.
