SALT LAKE CITY, Utah โ€“ The NBA officiating crew for the second round playoff series between the Houston Rockets and the Golden State Warriors drew a lot of criticism for their performance over the weekend.

Many fans and experts felt that fouls should have been called on the Warriors for their shot-contesting on Rockets star James Harden. The Warriors ended up winning Game 1 of the series, 104-100, on Sunday.

Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert was quite outspoken about the no-calls, saying that things were called differently when the Jazz faced the Rockets in the first round. Utah lost the series to Houston, four games to one.

Sensing that Gobertโ€™s comments may soon cost him a fine, Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell offered a quip.

Jazz forward Royce Oโ€™Neale also had something to say.

Naturally, Gobert clapped back at Oโ€™Neale, poking fun at his fashion sense.

As of Monday morning, there had been no news of a fine on Gobert for his comments.
