Rudy Gobert scored 17 points on 7-of-8 shooting with six rebounds, two blocks and a steal in Monday’s 85-96 loss to the Rockets.
Gobert had almost no one stopping him whenever he got the ball in the paint as the Rockets were playing without Clint Capela. He was able to make his presence felt for a bit, but when the Rockets switched to their switch happy forward lineup, it became difficult for Gobert to get it going in crunch time. The Stifle Tower is locked and loaded as the Jazz’s primary option on both offense and defense going forward and should produce like it.
