After the game, Paul called Holtkamp's technical on him "terrible" and said if she calls it that way, "this might not be for her."
According to Bleacher Report's Kevin Ding, Jordan said he wasn't yelling at Holtkamp when he received his technical. He hopes to get the foul rescinded by the NBA and said the two other referees agreed with him.
Asked about the five technical fouls his team received on Thursday, Rivers said, "This game was over already."
On Friday, Lee Seeham, general counsel for the National Basketball Referees Association, addressed Paul's comments.
According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports, Seeham said Holtkamp's calls were "justified" and that "she belongs."
