It was not a good night for Rudy Gobert.
Then he and Toronto’s OG Anuoby got ejected on a soft call (to my eye) with less than a minute left in the game.
After the game, Gobert was a frustrated man and said in the future if he’s going to get ejected, he’s going to get his money’s worth (via ESPN).
“I don’t think it makes sense to me. But next time, I’ll do justice myself so the official can eject me for a reason,” Gobert told reporters…
Gobert said Anunoby “tried to elbow me in the face.”
“And the guy that’s getting paid to protect the other players didn’t do his job,” Gobert said, referring to the officials. “There was a little altercation, and we both got ejected when I didn’t do anything back, pretty much, which I don’t understand.”
Toronto and Utah do not meet again this season.
