SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – The Utah Jazz issued a statement condemning violence towards the Black community in light of the Milwaukee Bucks decision to protest game five of their opening-round series with the Orlando Magic.

“We support and join with the National Basketball Association, its teams, the players and the Utah Jazz in condemning social injustice and violence against Black people,” THe statement read. “Our family and organization remain fully committed to and focused on building a country that is equitable, just and safe. We also echo Jacob Blake’s mother’s plea to ‘use our hearts, our love and our intelligence to work together to show the rest of the world how humans are supposed to treat each other.’”

Before the Jazz release, Bucks players issued a statement demanding justice for 29-year-old Jacob Blake, a Black man, who was shot by Wisconsin police on Sunday.

In total, three NBA games were postponed due to the protest on Wednesday. A Board of Governors meeting is set for Thursday to discuss plans for the NBA to discuss future plans in light of Wednesday’s events, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowksi.
