Jazz's Rudy Gobert: Establishes new season high with 17 boards
Gobert tallied 16 points (5-10 FG, 6-8 FT), 17 rebounds, three blocks and one assist across 34 minutes in Monday's 112-103 win over the Timberwolves.
Gobert made life exceedingly difficult for opposing center Karl-Anthony Towns, holding him to an 8-of-19 shooting night from the field while collecting his most rebounds of the season and second-most points. Aiding Gobert's scoring effort was another impressive display at the free-throw line, an area where he's made dramatic strides in 2016-17. He's upped his mark to 62.9 percent this season, a significant upgrade from his 59.4 percent career rate.
