Donovan Mitchell fires NSFW remarks on officiating after Jazz loss vs. Sixers

Donovan Mitchell, Jazz, Sixers

Donovan Mitchell absolutely blew his top after the Utah Jazz fell to the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday in OT, 131-123. Mitchell was ejected late in overtime when he got called for his second technical foul after a questionable foul was called on Rudy Gobert who had his hands down while defending Joel Embiid.

Mitchell was mad mad. Aside from continuously speaking his mind at the referees while heading out, the two-time All-Star even slammed a cooler before heading to the locker room. He went on to air out his frustrations after the game when he talked to the media (via Bleacher Report).

“It’s tough to go out there and see how we fight and compete and to have a game like that taken from us. It’s getting f**king ridiculous that this is what’s happening. I’m sick of it, we all are. It’s really getting out of hand. The league has to do something about this.”

There’s going to be a hefty fine with Mitchell’s name after this but I’m pretty sure he won’t mind one bit. At this point, he feels that something’s wrong with the officiating and someone has to say something about it. You can’t really blame a guy who dropped 33 points in the first four quarters only to be shut out in OT.

March hasn’t been the kindest of months so far for Mitchell and the Jazz. After winning 12 of their 14 games in February, they’ve now dropped their first two games of the month and are headed to the All-Star break with a bitter taste in their mouths.

Despite their back-to-back losses, Donovan Mitchell and the Jazz are still at the top of the NBA with a 27-9 record as they gear up for the second half of the season.
