Rudy Gobert was fined $ 25K for official contact

NEW YORK — Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert has been fined $25,000 for making physical contact with an official.

NBA executive vice president of basketball operations Kiki VanDeWeghe announced Gobert’s punishment Sunday.

The incident occurred after Gobert was called for fouling Giannis Antetokounmpo midway through the third quarter of Utah’s 109-95 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks on Friday. A video replay shows Gobert touching the arm of an official in an apparent attempt to get his attention while disputing the foul call.
