Two days after issuing a permanent ban to fan Shane Keisel for his interaction with Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook, the Utah Jazz banned another fan for a previous incident involving Westbrook.

According to Eric Woodyard of the Deseret News on Friday, the latest fan was banned for “degrading and offensive conduct” against Westbrook during a playoff game last season.

Woodyard tweeted video of a fan calling Westbrook “boy” prior to Game 4 of last season’s playoff series between the Jazz and Thunder at Vivint Smart Home Arena on April 23:

Per Woodyard, the Jazz conducted an investigation and tracked down the fan in the video. A source told Woodyard, “The Jazz aren’t taking these matters lightly.”
