Jazz fan mocking James Harden protest may have been best part of game for Utah

Sunday was a rough loss for Utah Jazz fans. Their team once again showed the resilience that has gotten it too this point, but Chris Paul nailing midrange jumpers, a few too many left corner threes that fell, and Clint Capela’s defense disrupting drives to the rim proved to be too much. The Jazz fell, 100-87, and now head back to Houston down 3-1 in the series, likely doing so without Dante Exum who injured his hamstring.

Were there any bright spots for Utah?

Well, one big one. After James Harden was called for a foul — and it was a foul, despite what the painful analysis of Reggie Miller said on the broadcast — one Jazz fan had a classic mocking of Harden’s complaint about the call.

We all enjoy the irony when Harden complains he didn’t get a call, but this was especially well done.

It’s something for Jazz fans to smile about on Monday.
