Utah Jazz Center Rudy Gobert has been fined $ 25,000 for using profane language during a live television interview, the NBA announced Sunday.
“Man, f — talk,” Gobert said during his interview on the field with TNT after the Jazz’s series-equal 100-99 victory in Saturday’s match 4.
Gobert, who reached his performance of 17 points and 15 rebounds with the battle-winning thump from a lob from teammate Donovan Mitchell, told ESPN he is tired of hearing discussions about the Jazz’s chemistry and speculation about whether the team’s core could break this up. out of season.
“I mean, there’s a lot of noise,” Gobert said. “A lot of people talk about our team, our guys, the future, what can happen, what might not happen, about a lot of different things that ultimately mean nothing to us right now. We have a team, we are 2 -2 in the series and that’s our focus. “
