“This is an example of a Technical Foul for an overt gesture that exceeds the ‘Respect for the Game’ guidelines. The defensive player, Myles Turner, reacts to the foul call by ‘air punching’ away from the calling official. This type of overt ‘air punch’ will be met with a technical foul, as it exceeds the respect for the game guidelines, whether it’s directed towards an official or not. Players can react to calls with which they disagree, provided the reaction is not overly demonstrative, disrespectful, or prolonged.”
