Chandler: Lin to Help Curb Technical Fouls
Tyson Chandler knows he needs to relax, and the Knicks center said teammate Jeremy Lin is trying to keep him from picking up any more technical fouls.
Chandler has been whistled for nine technical fouls this season, tied with Sacramento’s DeMarcus Cousins for second-most in the NBA and trailing just Oklahoma City’s Kendrick Perkins (12) with 30 games remaining.
“I’m not getting any more the rest of the season,” Chandler said Friday night during Knicks Bowl 13 at Chelsea Piers.
“I talked to Jeremy Lin and all of that, and he’s working on calming me down,” Chandler said. “I’m going to have to calm myself [down]. I’ve been spending some time with Jeremy Lin in chapel and everything’s fine.”
