And it happened again. Last night, the Jazz’s Jordan Clarkson got into a fistfight against Utah’s Memphis at the FedEx Forum and was ejected from the court again.
Let’s recap: As the third quarter ended, the Grizzlies’ Desmond Bane was quick on his feet to beat Clarkson on the move. Clarkson hit Balan from behind and was unable to tackle his opponent, causing a stir among the teams. As the Memphis players angrily rush to confront him, Jordan chooses to raise his hand in battle. The judge saw no other option than an immediate suspension.
Here is the full episode:
The thing is, this has happened before and the internet went into a hilarious frenzy wondering why Clarkson would decide to take things to the next level and beat up everyone in her path.

In the first incident, Jordan was still a Lakers player in 2017 and pushed the Heat’s Goran Dragic to the floor, sparking a riot at the Los Angeles arena. “We’re not going to back down from these guys, we’re playing hard here and things are going to happen,” he continued.
