“This is an example of a Delay of Game Violation that occurs during an inbound pass. Luka Doncic, the defensive player defending the inbounds pass, delays the game by hitting the ball prior to the inbounder releasing it on the pass. This is a violation, as a defender may not make contact with the ball before the inbound pass is made. Please note that the first offense is a warning, and a technical foul shall be assessed with each successive offense.”
