Rudy Gobert took a back seat on offense but still had his fingerprints all over Saturday's game, scoring 10 points with eight rebounds and a whopping seven blocks.
Gobert was Utah's leading scorer heading into this game, which helps explain why they dropped the first two contests, but it was great to see him dominate the defensive side of the ball after blocking just one shot up til tonight. Utah wasted a masterful defensive effort from their anchor, and things might've turned on a questionable foul call late that saw James Harden head to the line despite Gobert taking and arm to the face. The Stifle Tower has been Utah's best player this series by a country mile, though that's not much consolation with the Jazz facing a 0-3 deficit.
