Rudy Gobert tallied 11 points, 10 rebounds, one assist, two blocks and a steal in the Jazz's devastating Game 5 loss to the Thunder on Wednesday night.
It's safe to say that Gobert's interior defense played a large part in Utah building up a 25-point lead in Game 5. But once Gobert got himself in foul trouble, the game flipped. The Jazz lost by eight but the Stifle Tower still finished a plus-7. If OKC has a chance at winning the series, the key could very well be taking Gobert out of it with aggressive drives and smart ball movement around the rim. If Gobert stays on the floor, the series shouldn't get past Game 6 in Salt Lake City on Friday night.
