Utah’s Rudy Gobert grabs a career-high 24 rebounds in win over Grizzlies (VIDEO)


Rudy Gobert is in just his second NBA season, but he’s already showing signs of developing into one of the game’s more dominant big men — especially on the defensive end of the floor.

Since becoming a regular part of the starting lineup for Utah’s last six games, Gobert has been on a tear, and the Jazz are 5-1 in those contests — which includes a big road victory in Memphis on Tuesday, where Gobert hauled down a career-high 24 rebounds.

Announcement: Pro Basketball Talk’s partner FanDuel is hosting a one-day $1,000,000 Fantasy Basketball league for Wednesday’s NBA games. It’s $25 to join and first prize is $100,000. Starts at 7pm ET on Wednesday. Here’s the FanDuel link.

Utah has the league’s best defense since Feb. 1, and Gobert’s improvement is one of the main reasons why.
