In a heated game between the Sacramento Kings and the Utah Jazz, Kings guard Malik Monk was ejected after charging at an umpire for a botched call.

Jazz’s rookie center Walker Kessler posted a career-high 31 points for the team (35-39), Canadian power forward Kelly Olynyk added 17 points, guard Ochai Agbaji added 20 points and power forward Jarrell Brantley scored 13 points off the bench.

Why was Malik Monk kicked out?

In the fourth quarter of the game between the Sacramento Kings and the Utah Jazz, the Kings players attempted to maintain their 9-point lead. Malik Monk attacked the rim for the slam but missed the shot which was fouled by Olynyk.

The problem arose when there was no whistle and Jazz got the ball, upsetting the keeper. Monk was visibly upset and couldn’t help sending some words to the referee, prompting him to teach, which put him out of the game at 11-10 in the game.

As we can see from the video, Olynyk clearly punched Monk’s arm, so the outrage is justified. However, he could have avoided the incidents to escape the ejection.

The incident has sparked debate among fans and analysts about the role of umpires in the game of basketball and the impact of their decisions on the outcome of a game. While some criticized Monk for his outburst, others expressed sympathy for his frustration and believe the referees should be held accountable for their decisions.

For Monk, the ejection serves as a reminder of the importance of composure and self-control on the court, as well as the need to advocate for fair play and justice in the game of basketball.
