Fox Sports Prime Ticket suspended announcer Ralph Lawler and analyst Michael Smith earlier in the week for offending some viewers with their comments about Memphis Grizzlies center Hamed Haddadi. Smith spoke of the Iranian center: "You're sure it's not Borat's older brother?... If they ever make a movie about Haddadi, I'm going to get Sacha Baron Cohen to play the part." After Haddadi passed the ball to a teammate for an assist, Lawler said, "I guess those Iranians can pass the ball." Both announcers were suspended one game.
