But the moment that struck Crowder the most on Monday night wasn’t a play he made. It was a gesture by Gobert: With the fourth quarter ticking away, Gobert was readying to check in for the final few minutes, but saw Derrick Favors was playing well at center. When Snyder asked him what he wished to do, Gobert sat back down, opting to let Favors play on. The unselfishness of that act spoke volumes to Crowder about his new club. After the game, he gushed about it. “For a guy like Rudy to see D-Fav go in there and tell D-Fav to go rock out, that’s great to see and be a part of and be a teammate of,” Crowder said. “That shows what this team is really about.”
Joe Ingles scored a career-high 23 points with six assists and five rebounds for the Jazz. Rudy Gobert added 20 points and 11 rebounds. “(The streak) means a lot,” Jazz forward Derrick Favors said. “We’re definitely in the playoff hunt. Guys are playing better, the team as a whole is playing better. We’re focused. Dialed in every night. Defensively, we’ve been great. Offensively, things are clicking for us. We’ve just got to keep it up.”
