Jazz center Rudy Gobert was recently fined by the NBA for criticizing officials. On Thursday night the officials got their revenge
Gobert was called for two quick fouls in the first quarter against the Rockets. The second foul came on an obvious flop by James Harden.
As Gobert headed to the bench following the second foul he knocked over water bottles on the scorer’s table out of disgust and was ejected.

Game, set, match. The officials made easy work of Gobert. And despite their big man’s early exit, the Jazz made easy work of the Rockets.
