'We're not a racist community'

'We're not a racist community'

Utah Jazz owner Gail Miller addressed the crowd before Thursday's game to underscore the team's willingness to enforce the NBA's Code of Conduct following Monday's incident involving Russell Westbrook and a fan who crossed the line.

Miller spoke for about 3½ minutes before the Jazz faced the Minnesota Timberwolves and asked fans to look out for potential repeats of the shouting match that led Utah to issue fan Shane Keisel a lifetime ban.

Jazz owner Gail Miller asked fans to show respect to all teams.

The Jazz permanently banned the fan from their games, and the NBA fined Westbrook $25,000.

Earlier in the day, Miller sent an email to fans on the team's mailing list with instructions to send a text message to the arena if they should see anyone violating the conduct code.
