Chris Paul has had the worst luck in playoff games refereed by Scott Foster, and last night his luck did not change.
The Chris Paul, Scott Foster playoff curse continues. Last night, Paul added another loss for playoff games he has been in that were refereed by Scott Foster.
The New Orleans Pelicans beat the Phoenix Suns, 125-114, and this became Paul’s 14 straight loss in a game where Foster was officiating.
Before the game started, users were on Twitter posting funny videos and memes about Forster officiating.
Does Chris Paul have beef with Scott Foster?
Paul and Foster do not appear to have the best relationship. In Paul’s postgame interview following the Rockets-Thunder game 7 in 2020, Paul stated Foster misled him and then called him for a delay of game.
"That s**t don’t make no sense…that’s crazy, he’s just… that situation, the league knows, they gonna fine me, we all know. I said his name, you all know the history,” said Paul in his post-game interview."
Also, according to senior ESPN’s Marc J. Spears, Paul said before the start of Game 7, Foster mentioned to Paul that he refereed his Game 7 loss to the San Antonio Spurs.
It seems as though whenever Foster is officiating any game Paul is in, fans should expect his team to lose. Hopefully, the curse ends soon, because a lot of fans would love to see Paul finally get a ring.
