Dion Waiters hit just 7-of-20 shots for 21 points, three treys, two boards and one assist in Friday’s win over the Jazz.
Waiters scored 12 of his 21 points in the fourth quarter but the talk after the game will be about whether he purposely dove into Rudy Gobert’s knee on the play below. We can’t really tell definitively but the league could theoretically say otherwise, though it seems very unlikely that Waiters would be punished. It’s going to be very interesting the next time these two teams play. Waiters has returned top 100-160 value (8/9 cat) this season.
Dove for the ball right… https://t.co/0xnXZVy2eG
