The Minnesota Timberwolves got poleaxed by a niggling technicality in Oklahoma City en route to a 139-127 overtime loss to the Thunder on Friday night.

National Basketball Association referee Scott Foster seemed to deny that it was Paul who alerted them of the violation, telling a press pool, "The last-second delay of game resulted in a technical foul".

With Minnesota leading 121-119 with 1.1 seconds left, Timberwolves center Karl-Anthony Towns missed the first of two free throw attempts.

Meanwhile, referee Scott Foster, who was among the officials on the floor when the call was made, refused to give Paul credit for seeing the violation.

Asked whether he was aware that Minnesota already had been flagged for a delay of game, Paul blatantly answered. "If you check in without your jersey tucked, that's a delay of game".

After the game, Paul spoke to the media about his keen awareness of the rules that led to the decisive delay of game call. "Damn right", Paul said after Foster made the call.

Paul is clearly audible on the broadcast feed.

"That happens more often than not", Paul said postgame, according to The Athletic's Erik Horne. "Checking in with your jersey untucked is a delay of game". Sometimes refs tend to be like "whatever", but that is the rule. Towns tried to miss the second free throw to force Oklahoma City to have a long shot if any on the rebound, but he made it instead. Moments later, the Thunder forced overtime after a last-second bucket from Dennis Schroder. "Jordan Bell came into the game with it untucked and down t his knees at midcourt, observed by myself and then Mark from trailing me and then it was assessed a technical foul".
