Jazz’s Donovan Mitchell gets courtside fan ejected in game vs. Sixers

Donovan Mitchell, Jazz

After multiple incidents of NBA players clashing with opposing fans during away games, the league has taken a stricter, no-tolerance approach to hecklers this season.

A fan sitting courtside at the Wells Fargo Center during the Philadelphia 76ers versus Utah Jazz match was escorted out of the arena after trading verbal jabs with Donovan Mitchell.

With Philly up by seven, 99-92, with 51 seconds left in regulation, referees pacified the situation by calling arena security and removing the fan from his seat. It remains unclear what caused the commotion between the player and the spectator, but it might just be another case of fans going way over board with taunting opposing players.

The Jazz, meanwhile, are no strangers to such incidents, as they have permanently banned one fan from watching live games after hurling a racial slur to Russell Westbrook last March.
