An offensive player cross the court passing the lane through, a defender make contact with him but the referee calls the foul on another defensive player saying that this player pushed the teammate who contacted the offensive player .

Is it an Official' error ? Is not this case a foul on the player who makes the first contact... that's means the player who pushes the opponent against the rules ?


At the beginning the rules were as this case question relates: pushing a teammate in order to make him to contact an opponent, the player who pushed was responsible of the foul . Actually, who makes the contact is credited with the foul.

The eBA System  (external link) qualification of the foul will be " neutral " ( not "good" neither "bad" foul ) because he was not the responsible for the contact .
