Jordan Clarkson calls for more accountability from referees following dangerous non-call on foul

- by

Jordan Clarkson, meanwhile, was pointedly hoping to avoid the more substantial financial penalty assessed to players for similarly frank assessments, while still getting across his view that the crew of Brothers, Karl Lane, and part-timer Intae Hwang whiffed not only that particular play, but myriad others. His tone was measured, and he expressed appreciation for the difficult nature of the jobs that referees have to do — but he also conceded to being “super-upset” about the lack of a call, and was clear in his displeasure at a perceived double-standard which doesn’t allow for negative public assessment of officials who miss myriad calls.

L2MR from Jazz -Blazers last night. 2 plays that Jordan Clarkson cited — his foul on Simons, a no-call on Nurkic vs. Markkanen — are both found to be correct by the league. They did identify two missed non-calls — Simons pushing off vs. Vando, and a 5-second penalty by Olynyk. pic.twitter.com/D9fY7rIP4W3:10 PM

Utah Jazz guard Jordan Clarkson acknowledged being “super-upset” about not getting a foul call for being knocked out of the air on a dunk attempt Saturday vs. the Blazers, calling for referees to be subject to more “accountability.” sltrib.com/sports/jazz/20…12:47 PM

1. The Jazz’s defense on Anfernee Simons early
2. The Jordan Clarkson foul, and what the refs were looking at
3. Damian Lillard’s tweet about Jarred Vanderbilt, and Vanderbilt’s future generally

Jordan Clarkson said his arm is OK… “Just a swollen elbow.” He then adds, “Part of the game, right?” with a smile. – 12:14 AM

More on this storyline

“We come here, we come to work, just like they come to work, they lace up their shoes; they make mistakes, I make mistakes, everybody makes mistakes down the line. But at some point they’ve got to get held accountable,” Clarkson said. “I get held accountable — for missed shots, turnovers, late-game situations, everything. In that instance, we’ve all got to be held accountable.” -via Salt Lake Tribune / December 4, 2022
Ben Anderson: “I should have gotten thrown out, that play was gross.” Will Hardy said he should have been ejected after the refs badly blew a bad foul that could have injured Jordan Clarkson. #TakeNote | @kslsports -via Twitter @BensHoops / December 4, 2022
Eric Walden: Jordan Clarkson, on his fall: It’s a little swollen. It hurts a bit. But that’s just part of the game. (Insert wry smile to indicate he does not think that should have been part of the game.) -via Twitter @tribjazz / December 4, 2022
