Jazz's Rodney Hood gets ejected, slaps phone out of a fan's hand

ATT Sportsnet

Needless to say, Hood is going to get a fine and a suspension, and since we're on the subject of action and effect, that's probably fair.

The Utah Jazz held their nerve late against the Washington Wizards to grab a 107-104 win. He flicks the phone out of the man's hand-"nonchalantly", CBS said, and that seems about the right way to describe it. Hood doesn't even look up-he just swipes the device out of the guy's grasp. Beyond that, there's a legitimate debate to be had about fan behavior and players' reactions to it.

Hood is already on the hook for $6,000 for his actions Wednesday - $2,000 for each technical, plus $2,000 for the ejection - and an additional fine from the league office for the phone-slapping incident is probable. Now, playing devil's advocate here, but does anyone believe that Hood accidentally thought the fan was another one of his teammates extending their hand for a five? But it's also kind of inappropriate, surely, to start filming an athlete when he's clearly going to be steaming angry.

You can watch the scene play out below.

The Jazz's young shooting guard got tossed after he wouldn't let an argument with Brothers go, continuing to chirp at the veteran official until he got hit with a second technical and tossed from the game. If anything, he did get six rebounds and a pair of steals.

Rodney Hood didn't record any blocks against the Washington Wizards.
