The Jazz have elected to exercise their 3rd-year team options for G Trey Burke and C Rudy Gobert. Options for both are through 2015-16
As expected, the Jazz exercised their team options on second-year players Trey Burke and Rudy Gobert. Both are guaranteed through 2015-16.
The Utah Jazz exercised team options on Trey Burke and Rudy Gobert.
That was Gobert's fourth foul, so Kanter's back in the game for him
btw, Gobert has 8 points and 6 rebounds in 14 minutes...
You might see Alex Len in this game's highlight package. Rudy Gobert posterized him. Overall, there has been much more good Len than bad.
Bledsoe has been going at the Jazz this entire third quarter. Gobert has a real mean streak, so this isn't surprising
Eric Bledsoe goes to the hoop, gets fouled by Gobert. Bledsoe talks, Rudy talks back. Bledsoe says to Rudy "F--- you B----"...Preseason lol
This has been a pretty solid stint of minutes for Dante Exum. Running the pick and roll well....has set Gobert up for easy rolls to the rim
Jazz up 24-15 as Hood, Novak and Gobert check in. Extra minutes to go around at the 4 & 5 with Favors out tonight.
Be interesting to see whether quin Snyder starts Rudy Gobert or Trevor Booker tonight in place of Favors
Perry Jones with a great move, scores on Rudy Gobert and is fouled
Rudy Gobert giving Steven Adams fits on both ends.
That lineup: Exum, Hood, Burks, Gobert, Kanter. Burks was the old man in that equation at 24
Exum-Burks-Hood-Kanter-Gobert starts the 2nd half for Utah. Same group for LAL. Deficit is 12 after a 5-1 Lakers start.
After Kobe hit a long 3, Randle made a nice move to get into the paint … only for Rudy Gobert to swat it away. Utah up 43-25.
Rudy Gobert. Sheesh
Rudy Gobert with a GREAT hedge right here, forced Crawford to pick the ball up and got back to Hawes, who was spacing for a three.
Crawford for 3 and we're all tied up at 92. 1:14 on the clock. Jazz going with Hayward, Clark, Favors, Burke and Gobert.
Favors and Gobert together is tough on spacing, Interesting to see if Snyder can find a way to make it work because DEFENSIVELY WOW
Favors and Gobert together to close with 6:23
Rudy Gobert gets a T.
Rudy Gobert just got a technical foul for trying to push DeAndre Jordan out of his way after the Clipper big dunked an alley-oop.
Rudy Gobert now hit with a tech for shoving(?) Jordan out of the way after an alley-oop.
Rudy Gobert is sinking free throws and dropping soft left handed layups. So things are going pretty good for Utah so far. Jazz up 35-24.
Rudy Gobert just made the weirdest-looking left-handed scoop layup I've ever seen. His body was contorted in a funky position. It went in.
The young Dante Exum-Rudy Gobert combo has been fun to watch, already resulting in 2 Jazz dunks. LAL down 7.
Exum had a big oop to Gobert in the first quarter. Starts the second with a bounce pass to the big man that leads to a dunk.
How looooonnnnngggg is Rudy Gobert
Snyder continued about Gobert: "He impacts his playing time. There's no entitlement because you have a good game. It’s about consistency."
Coach Quin Snyder was asked if Rudy Gobert controls his own playing time. "No. I control his playing time." (An almost evil laugh ensued.)
I dreamed last night that Rudy Gobert was a dominant player and the Jazz could actually shoot 3s...in the regular season.
The Jazz want Gobert to do two things above all others this season: 1. Roll hard to the basket & 2. rebound. Mission accomplished tonight.
Gobert's line surprised his coach. “I think a few of them were tips," Snyder said. "Maybe he’s padding his stats, tipping it to himself.”
Quin Snyder on Rudy Gobert's 20 rebounds: "Maybe he’s padding his stats tipping it to himself."
Final: Jazz 102, Clippers 89. Trey Burke finishes with 16 points and 8 rebounds. Rudy Gobert snags 20 rebounds to go with 11 points.
Gobert leaves for good. His final line is 11 points and 20 rebounds.
Rudy Gobert now has VINGT REBOUNDS!!!!
Gobert with 20 rebounds in 22 minutes
Rudy Gobert has 17 rebounds and 11 points. SEVENTEEN REBOUNDS!
