Rudy Gobert produced 12 points, 13 boards, one block on 5-of-11 from the field and 2-of-6 from the line in Monday’s Game 4 loss to the Warriors.
Gobert dominated on the glass once again, but again it was not enough against a stacked Warriors team. More was expected offensively from the big man in this series as he went up against the likes of Zaza Pachulia. Defensive player of the year candidate Draymond Green was up for the task though and his perimeter shooting was huge in pulling Gobert away from the basket which the Warriors did all series long. Also of concern was the big man’s postseason regression for the free throw line. He hit just 45 percent from the charity stripe over his last seven games after converting 63 percent during the regular season. On the bright side Gobert made huge strides in development this season and will only continue to improve.
