A few video thoughts on DeAndre (bleacherreport.com/articles/23832…) and some more on superior rim protector Rudy Gobert (bleacherreport.com/articles/23847…).

Jay King

Gobert: "It's very frustrating to see him score in the paint when I could have blocked the shot."

Jody Genessy

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.

Jody Genessy

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.

Jody Genessy

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."

Jody Genessy

Rudy Gobert used the word "frustrating" multiple times in regard to the last play and the Jazz loss to the Celtics.

Aaron Falk

Gobert: “It’s very frustrating to see him score in the paint when I could have blocked a shot.”

Tony Jones

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.

Tony Jones

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

Tony Jones

For the record, no issues with Snyder putting Gobert on the ball. Ideally, he forces pass towards halfcourt and not the basket

Gary Washburn

Crazy part about Zeller's winner is Gobert defended inbounds pass and was aware enough to challenge the layup. Amazing. #Celtics #Jazz

Scott Souza

#Celtics coach Brad Stevens: Gobert wasn't on ball, reason opted to try to go Zeller on Hayward inside for winning shot.

Jay King

Gobert was on the inbounder and STILL almost blocked that.

Tony Jones

Marcus Smart made a better play than Zeller did. How did he throw that perfect a pass with Gobert hounding him?

Jody Genessy

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.

Jeff Zillgitt

And with subtle offensive pass interference by Zeller. RT @Paul Flannery: That was a great pass by Marcus Smart to get it in over Gobert.

Paul Flannery

That was a great pass by Marcus Smart to get it in over Gobert.

Scott Souza

Huge call for Brad Stevens to go to basket against a team with size of #Jazz. Nod to Marcus Smart for passing over Rudy Gobert on inbounds.

Zach Lowe

Great inbounds lob pass from Smart over Gobert, too.

Jody Genessy

Incredible position by Tyler Zeller underneath the basket with Trey Burke on him. Marcus Smart had to inbound over 7-1 Rudy Gobert.

Brian Robb

The Jazz had Rudy Gobert guarding the inbounds pass there instead of the paint and they are regretting it right now.

Jody Genessy

From Memphis to Heartbreak Hotel in Boston for Jazz. Tyler Zeller takes pass from Marcus Smart, gets Gobert in air, game-winning bucket.

John Schuhmann

I guess if Rudy Gobert's defending the inbounder, he's not defending the rim.

Jared Weiss

Such a well run play by the Jazz. Gobert is essentially two players setting a pick. Hayward showing his max value at work.

Jessica Camerato

Somehow Gobert and Booker have put together double-doubles in this game. #Celtics #Jazz

Aaron Falk

Gobert stuffs Zeller at the rim & Hayward sinks a 3. Jazz still alive, down 81-78.

A. Sherrod Blakely

Note to Gobert. You're 7-2 with a 7-9 wingspan. Pumpfakes not necessary. #Celticstalk #justsayin

Jared Weiss

Rudy Gobert and Jae Crowder have joined Isaiah Thomas in the esteemed 5+ FTA club tonight. What a game. #Celtics

A. Sherrod Blakely

Cs up 61-55 after 3Q. #Celtics Bradley 13 pts. Thomas 11 pts, 6 ast. #Jazz Burke 10 pts. Gobert 9 pts, 12 reb. #CelticsTalk

Gary Washburn

#celtics lead #jazz 61-55 after 3Q. Crowder, Bradley 13, Thomas 11; Burke 10, Gobert 9 and 12 rebs.

Abby Chin

Rudy Gobert leads all #Jazz scorers with 9 points... There's 2:28 left in the 3rd. #Celtics have two players in double-figures. #CelticsTalk

David Locke

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

Andy Larsen

Burke's right: Gobert should at least make an effort there to contest IT's floater.

Jody Genessy

Trey Burke is chewing out Rudy Gobert.

Aaron Falk

Didn't see the trip. Either way, Gobert helped erase a highlight.

Gary Washburn

Tyler Zeller already has 9 rebs in 17 min, a respectable amount facing Rudy Gobert #celtics #jazz

Tony Jones

Dante Exum made the wrong read on that lob to Gobert. Right read was skip pass to Hayward in the corner

Tony Jones

Slowly, Rudy Gobert is showing signs of improvement on offense. Not sure he could've made that roll to the rim a month ago

Jessica Camerato

After 1Q: #Jazz 19 - #Celtics 18. Crowder 8pt, Gobert 4pt-6reb, Zeller 4pt-5reb.

A. Sherrod Blakely

Cs down 19-18 after 1Q. #Celtics Crowder 8 pts. Thomas 2 pts, 3 ast. #Jazz Gobert 4 pts, 6 reb. Burke 4 pts. #CelticsTalk

Rich Levine

Kelly Olynyk is 7 feet tall and looks like a shooting guard standing next to Gobert.

Tony Jones

Gobert has struggled some in this first quarter ---- and still has 4 points and six rebounds

Tony Jones

Rudy Gobert's rim runs are underrated

Jessica Camerato

Gobert is taller than everyone put together. RT @Jay King Early impression. The Celtics are tiny. The Jazz are not.

Jay King

Stevens very high on Jazz. Calls Gobert an absolute force on D, thinks they're currently one of most impressive teams masslive.com/celtics/index.…
