Eurodrive. Eurostep. Euroroll!! RT @rudygobert: Way to play 48 minutes of basketball tonight!! Great team win lets keep it going. #euroooooo

Tony Jones

Rudy Gobert off the bench tonight: 6 points, 9 rebounds

Jody Genessy

I don't know if I can even watch anymore basketball after that Gobert play. The only thing keeping me going is hoping to see it again.

Jody Genessy

That was the most amazing basketball play in the history of the universe. Rudy Gobert dribbled from midcourt, Eurostepped and made a layup.

Tom Haberstroh

Rudy Gobert just Euro-stepped around Udonis Haslem on a fastbreak layup. Papi is grunting.

Jody Genessy

RUDY GOBERT IS THE POINT GUARD OF THE JAZZ'S FUTURE!!!

Surya Fernandez

Jazz reserve Rudy Gobert's statline from last week's Heat game: 9 points, 11 rebounds, 5 blocks, 4 assists in 26 minutes.

Tony Jones

Rudy Gobert makes his first appearance

Jody Genessy

Coach Q loved that Rudy Gobert pushed Enes Kanter into defensive position last night. "It’s good. Maybe Enes will push Rudy tonight."

Ira Winderman

Uh, oh. Derrick Favors back for Jazz tonight. Then again, less Gobert reaching over the top of Heat big men.

Jody Genessy

Gobert said he was literally pushing Kanter in the back to get him into the proper defensive position, and it took a while to explain that.

Jody Genessy

Kanter and Gobert bickered while coming off the court after that Pelicans possession. Snyder calmed them down. Hayward was there too.

Tony Jones

The Jazz have struggled to get stops without Rudy Gobert on the floor

Tony Jones

Rudy Gobert making plays on the run? That's crazy

Jimmy Smith

Tonight's Utah starters: Hayward, Kanter, Gobert, Burks, Burke.

Aaron Falk

I won't be able to do Evan Fournier's Rudy Gobert impressions justice in the story I'm working on, so here you go. soundcloud.com/aaronfalk/evan…

Tony Jones

Rudy gobert will start in place of favors

David Locke

Derrick Favors will not play tonight. Rudy Gobert will start #utaatnop

Jody Genessy

Rudy Gobert will get his second start in a row for the injured Derrick Favors (ankle).

Tony Jones

If Favors can't play tonight, Quin Snyder will start Rudy Gobert in his place

Aaron Falk

Offense still an issue. Gobert had a net rtg of -24 last night, per NBA.com. But some positive signs. twitter.com/BenKFAN/status…

Aaron Falk

Teams hitting 40.4% at the rim against Rudy Gobert. Only Bogut, Howard & Hibbert better among guys defending 5+ FGA. vine.co/v/OguqBQQ1KmL

Jody Genessy

Rudy Gobert just said "No, no" to Nene.

Tony Jones

Washington's running Gobert in transition...Gortat also walked him up the lane for a lob and score over the top

David Locke

Wizards score 25 points in the 14:35 minutes Gobert is on the floor and 12 in the 9:25 he off the floor. Complete defensive effort

Tony Jones

Rudy Gobert is a great defender....

Tony Jones

Rudy Gobert....relentless...is he ever gets offensively skilled...

Jody Genessy

There were aftershocks in France after that Nene dunk over Rudy Gobert.

Tony Jones

Nene just dunked on Rudy Gobert....

Jody Genessy

Gordon Hayward just did his Rudy Gobert impersonation, swatting away Paul Pierce's shot.

Tony Jones

Rudy Gobert goes to the basket and gets fouled

David Locke

Rudy Gobert fired up with a 360 jam in the warmups #UTAatWAS

Tony Jones

Starters for the Jazz tonight: Burke, Burks, Hayward, Enes Kanter, Rudy Gobert

Tony Jones

Rudy gobert will make his first career start tonight

David Locke

Derrick Favors is out tonight for the Utah Jazz. Jazz are 0-10 in last 2 years without Favors. Gobert likely to start

Jody Genessy

Jazz will likely start Rudy Gobert for Derrick Favors.

David Locke

Hope the NBA is paying attention to Rudy Gobert and he is rewarded with a rising star All-Star invite

David Locke

Last 10 games with Rudy Gobert on the floor the Jazz defensive rating is 96.7 (pts per 100 possessions) Would be 2nd best in NBA for a team

Matt Harpring

Tough loss. Incredible comeback once again. These guys keep fighting till the end. Gobert, Kanter, Burks, Hayward all very good tonight

Ira Winderman

Heat Almanac: Gobert's five blocks on Friday night most against the Heat this season. bit.ly/1spDag0

David Locke

Still an issue on offense with Rudy Gobert on the floor Jazz shot 17 of 44 (38.6%) and when he was on the bench shot 17 of 33 (51.5%)

David Locke

With Rudy Gobert on the floor Miami shot 15 of 39 (38.4%) with Gobert on the bench Miami shot 21 of 33 (64%) #MIAatUTA

David Locke

Rudy Gobert tonight Season high 26 minutes 9 points 11 rebounds 4 assists 1 steal 5 blockshots Jazz +10 with Gobert on floor

Tony Jones

Rudy Gobert was a +10 tonight.....Enes Kanter and Trey Burke combined for -30....

Aaron Falk

Another good second half effort from the Jazz, especially Kanter, Gobert & Burks. But will it be good enough? Jazz down 93-89 w/ 2 min left.

Tony Jones

Justin Hamilton is Rudy Gobert's kryptonite

Tony Jones

What I can't believe about Rudy Gobert: He's actually catching passes in traffic and making coherent decisions on the run

David Locke

Great fun at Energy Solutions tonight. Kanter with 23 - Wade brilliant. Gobert impactful. 5:53 left. LISTEN LIVE on.nba.com/166hxHy

Aaron Falk

Big threes by Wade (over Gobert on the perimeter) and Chalmers. Heat up 89-81 with 7:18 to play in the fourth.
