Rudy Gobert double-doubled with 10 points, 10 rebounds, one assist and five blocks in Friday’s 95-68 win over the Hawks.
Gobert was a presence in the paint tonight, holding the Hawks to 14 of 43 on shots in the paint for 28 points. Not only did he block five shots, he affected many more shots than the box score shows. Opposing center Dwight Howard also had trouble with Gobert’s defense, finishing with four points on 2-of-9 shooting with seven rebounds. Gobert has been a top-50 player so far this season and as long as he stays healthy he should stay up there.
