Gobert: "It's very frustrating to see him score in the paint when I could have blocked the shot."
Don't overlook how Marcus Smart made a ball fake to get Gobert out of position on the inbounds pass. It was a ... Smart play.
Q didn't second-guess having Rudy Gobert defend the pass. It's how they've done it all season, he said. Gobert was just too far off passer.
Rudy Gobert when told Coach Q thought he was too far away from inbound passer: "I think I would probably be more useful in the paint."
Rudy Gobert used the word "frustrating" multiple times in regard to the last play and the Jazz loss to the Celtics.
Gobert: “It’s very frustrating to see him score in the paint when I could have blocked a shot.”
Rudy Gobert had 10 points, 16 rebounds, 3 assists, 3 blocks and a steal, and yet I feel he could've done some things much better tonight.
With 1.7 seconds, the ball was never supposed to get anywhere near the rim. Gobert was in the right place -- which was guarding the inbounds
For the record, no issues with Snyder putting Gobert on the ball. Ideally, he forces pass towards halfcourt and not the basket
Gobert was on the inbounder and STILL almost blocked that.
Marcus Smart made a better play than Zeller did. How did he throw that perfect a pass with Gobert hounding him?
What you need to know: Tyler Zeller hits game-winner at buzzer while Rudy Gobert was trying to close in on him after guarding inbounds pass.
That was a great pass by Marcus Smart to get it in over Gobert.
Great inbounds lob pass from Smart over Gobert, too.
Incredible position by Tyler Zeller underneath the basket with Trey Burke on him. Marcus Smart had to inbound over 7-1 Rudy Gobert.
The Jazz had Rudy Gobert guarding the inbounds pass there instead of the paint and they are regretting it right now.
From Memphis to Heartbreak Hotel in Boston for Jazz. Tyler Zeller takes pass from Marcus Smart, gets Gobert in air, game-winning bucket.
I guess if Rudy Gobert's defending the inbounder, he's not defending the rim.
Such a well run play by the Jazz. Gobert is essentially two players setting a pick. Hayward showing his max value at work.
Gobert is a beast
Gobert stuffs Zeller at the rim & Hayward sinks a 3. Jazz still alive, down 81-78.
Spacing is an issue. Celtics aren't guarding the Jazz non shooters. Pick and roll with Gobert leads to a double team on ball handler
Burke's right: Gobert should at least make an effort there to contest IT's floater.
Trey Burke is chewing out Rudy Gobert.
Didn't see the trip. Either way, Gobert helped erase a highlight.
Dante Exum made the wrong read on that lob to Gobert. Right read was skip pass to Hayward in the corner
Slowly, Rudy Gobert is showing signs of improvement on offense. Not sure he could've made that roll to the rim a month ago
Kelly Olynyk is 7 feet tall and looks like a shooting guard standing next to Gobert.
Gobert has struggled some in this first quarter ---- and still has 4 points and six rebounds
Rudy Gobert's rim runs are underrated
