Rudy Gobert did not get out of his lane Thursday night against the Rockets. First, he owned the paint like the Jazz need him to do if they are going to win games — he had 22 rebounds, four blocks.
Offensively he took 11 shots, and all them were at the rim.
Which works for him because he can dunk. Just ask Houston’s Terrence Jones. (Granted, there was a little dunk by in this one, still… damn.)
By the way, the Jazz are now 9-2 since the All-Star break and have been giving up just 90.6 points per 100 possessions in that time, the best mark in the NBA.
