Rudy Gobert scored 17 points on 6-of-9 shooting (5-of-7 FTs) with 14 rebounds, one steal and three blocks in the Jazz’s 94-93 loss to the Kings on Wednesday.
Gobert started a tiny bit slow but has since rewarded owners that bought the preseason surge up draft boards. He’s returning top 25-30 value with 70 percent shooting from the field, 67 percent shooting from the line and an improved offensive game that hasn’t hurt him on the defensive end. He’s the bizarro-Hassan Whiteside right now.
