Rudy Gobert is a defensive nightmare for opposing guards. Heck, he’s a nightmare for opposing forwards and centers, too.
Houston Rockets big man Nene found that out the hard way on Tuesday night.
The play started late in the fourth quarter between the Rockets and Utah Jazz as Montrezl Harrell drove down the left baseline.
As the Jazz help defense shifted over, Gobert was called into duty as the ball zipped from Harrell to a cutting Nene.
The rejection was fierce, and the Jazz got the win, 120-101.
