This is the episode. Jordan Mickey immediately comes into contact with Billy Baron looking for the ball and at the same time anticipating its movement. The trio Rossi, Attard and Giovannetti opts for the Milan guard to have already started the movement and assigns three free throws. At that point Sergio Scariolo protests, and also takes a technical foul.
It is not clear what leads to the referee decision, then the Virtus coach shouts: «it’s a scandal» and «Are you kidding? Are we joking?”. After the match, the same Brescia technician left the floor to his assistant Andrea Diana, not commenting further:
«I just want to say goodbye to the city and friends of Brescia. It had been 30 years since I went back to the gym where I started playing. Nice to be here, and I stop. I give the floor to my technical staff who have led the team in recent weeks, with excellent work. With balance we recognize the work done by the technical, medical and physical staff. I give the word to Andrea, this victory rewards them ».
