VIDEO: TNT crew reacts to first foul call of the All-Star Game near the end of the 1st quarter
It’s been a bombastic start for the 2020 All-Star Game as everyone got firing early onto the game. However, the most shocking thing for the TNT crew that was casting the game was the lack of fouls until late in the first quarter.
The foul was committed by Chris Paul in order to stop Kyle Lowry from making a quick transition basket. It was a smart decision on the part of the Oklahoma City Thunder guard as they were facing a three-on-two situation.
As heard on the Dime video, you can hear the disbelief on the voices of the TNT broadcasting team that it took this long for a foul to be made.
"And we have a foul call."

It’s understandable why it took this long to see a foul call. Little to no defense is being played during All-Star games, and no one wants to go all-out as getting an injury in this game is the worst thing they could do. Keeping it cool and not getting physical is a wise move for the players.
Expect this game to reach ridiculous numbers as the game progresses.
