Technical Foul, Overt Gesture, slaps hands several times at official

This is an example of a Technical Foul for an overt gesture that exceeds the “Respect for the Game” guidelines. Players can react to calls with which they disagree, provided the reaction is not overly demonstrative, disrespectful, or prolonged. On this play, the offending player slaps his hands repeatedly in the face of the official, severla moments after his initial display of anger with the call. Since this reaction is demonstrative, it warrants a technical foul.
