Rudy Gobert was a dominant force at the rim on Wednesday, rejecting five shots while adding six points and 11 rebounds.
While the other numbers aren’t particularly impressive, the swats underscore how important he is to this team. He was a plus-14 on the night, and Joe Ingles (plus-15 with six points, eight rebounds, five dimes and two triples) was the only player to top a plus-three. The Jazz had two starters in the negatives and it really is obvious that they aren’t going anywhere without Gobert anchoring the middle. He’s an elite option who can do his damage in three categories. Just hope he stays healthy.
