Deandre Ayton hasn’t forgotten about the last time he played against Rudy Gobert and the Utah Jazz. Ayton scored a career-low two points on 1-of-9 shooting in 33 minutes in an 114-97 home loss on March 13 and called his performance the “worst game” he’s ever played. “Overall, I give myself an F-minus,” a disappointed Ayton said after the 17-point defeat. “This was a bad game. I definitely put this loss on me. I just wasn’t locked in. I don’t know what’s happening. The shots I took were pretty bad. This is definitely the worst game I’ve ever played. The worst by far.”
Gobert said he did not think the comment was representative of the Jazz fan base, saying he has never heard a racist comment made at Vivint Arena in his six seasons with the franchise. However, Gobert said he has been bothered in the past by disrespectful comments made toward opponents and sympathized with Westbrook. “We have his back,” Gobert told ESPN. “As much as I like to compete against Russ — and there’s always a little trash talk between me and him — as a human being, I feel for him and I understand his reaction.”
