Fan removed from Moda Center after directing inappropriate gestures toward Utah Jazz players

Moda Center Security removed a fan for allegedly making obscene hand gestures toward at least one Utah Jazz player during their win Saturday night over the Portland Trail Blazers, a team source told The Oregonian/OregonLive.

The Deseret News reported the incident via Twitter as reporter Sarah Todd said that racist comments and hand gestures were directed toward Jazz guard Jordan Clarkson.

Todd tweeted the following:

“A Blazers fan was escorted out of the arena tonight. The fan, according to those who heard the exchanges, was directing racist comments toward Jordan Clarkson and then also flipped the players off for a long while. Sexton pointed the fan out to team security.”

According to the Blazers team source, the use of racists comments by the fan was still being investigated late Sunday.

The Jazz beat the Blazers 118-113.

The Associated Press also noted the incident in a story about the game.

“During an injury timeout in the second quarter, a pair of fans were removed from the game. Utah’s Collin Sexton pointed the fan out to security. Security then came to escort the fans out of the arena.”
