During the post-game interview, Clarkson didn’t say much about the incident rather than telling the people why he got provoked by him because that fan was acting malicious and was crossing the line and saying things about Clarkson which he shouldn’t.

“He just kept saying stuff, kept saying stuff. Throughout the whole game,” Clarkson said afterward. “I usually have playful dialogue with people in the stands, people who are courtside. Another guy was there doing the same thing, but [with him] I knew it wasn’t harmful. A timeout happened, and the [first] guy keeps antagonizing me. He almost challenges me, like, ‘What you gonna do?’ after saying a bunch of stuff.”

However, Clarkson was mature enough to control himself and stopped in between and was fortunate enough to have a timeout and that the things got carried away swiftly in terms of escorting the malicious fan out of the court. He even acknowledged the fact that there was no use fighting with the fan since if he did he would losing and the fan won’t lose much. The decision made by the Utah Jazz’s guard was wise enough as it didn’t create any major scene and spoil the fun of the fans of both teams.

“I was walking away initially, and then he said something again. I turned back around and then he said it again. I’m just like, ‘What’s going on?’” Clarkson said. “Literally, there was a guy sitting next to him the whole game saying stuff, doing stuff, but I knew it was playful — I and he kept winking at each other. But this guy was just a little too malicious with whatever he was saying. At one point I kinda just blacked out and was taking a step towards him.” {HT: The Salt Lake Tribune}

Jordan Clarkson however shared his thoughts on such incidents and had a message for the fans which he said during the interview. “We’re playing basketball, having a good time. Fans have got to learn that we’re human, we’re people too, Stuff like that just can’t fly. Especially on the NBA floor where guys are doing a job,” he said.
