Gobert Speaks Out On Officiating, Teammates Respond With Humor
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – 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 Gobert’s comments may soon cost him a fine, Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell offered a quip.
Jazz forward Royce O’Neale also had something to say.
Naturally, Gobert clapped back at O’Neale, poking fun at his fashion sense.
As of Monday morning, there had been no news of a fine on Gobert for his comments.
