NBA assigns Scott Foster to Warriors – Mavericks Game 5

Veteran NBA official Scott Foster has been assigned as the crew chief for Game 5 of the Western Conference finals between the Warriors and Mavericks.

Foster, known to some NBA fans as “The Extender,” has earned the nickname because teams that are often trailing in a playoff series win games in which he is assigned as an official. The 28th-year official has worked 213 career playoff games and 22 NBA Finals games, including Game 7 of the 2010 NBA Finals between the Lakers and Celtics.

Foster will work alongside referee John Goble and umpire Curtis Blair. The replay center official for Thursday’s game is Sean Wright.
