If Clarkson was seriously ready to box and/or throw hands, he might want to get those hands up to play a little defense. But that’s just a tip.

For escalating the situation, Clarkson was assessed a flagrant 2 foul, which was well deserved. And for Kuminga’s part, well, he got a good laugh out of the whole ordeal on the night when he was a force for the Warriors off of the bench with 24 points, five boards and four assists to go with a steal and a block as well.

Unfortunately for Golden State, it was the Jazz got the last laugh as Utah forced a late turnover that sealed a 124-123 victory in Salt Lake City for the home team.
