Lakers Remain One of Three Teams Without Individual Technical Foul

The Los Angeles Lakers are fighting to stay competitive in the Western Conference playoff race and they are still very well in the contention with a 5-7 record. Although this season has been frustrating at times, the team as a whole has kept its composure around the referees.

The Los Angeles Times writes that the Lakers are one of three teams that still has not recorded an individual technical foul. This statistic does not include technical fouls which result from a delay of game call or a defensive three second violation.

Twelve games into the regular season, the Lakers are one of three NBA teams left without an individual technical foul.

Only the Atlanta Hawks, the Denver Nuggets and the Lakers are technical-free (not including technicals called for delay of games or defensive three-second violations).

The NBA has a strict system when punishing players who pick up technical fouls, with the first five resulting in a $2,000 fine each, the sixth throughout tenth call leading to a $3000 fine each and $4,000 for the 11th through 15th technical foul. For anything over 16, the NBA hands out a $5,000 fine and a one-game suspension.

Oklahoma City Thunder’s Russell Westbrook leads the league with four technical fouls.
