Jazz's Rudy Gobert: Scores 16 points, adds 14 boards Tuesday
Gobert tallied 16 points (5-7 FG, 6-8 FT), 14 rebounds and three blocks across 33 minutes in Tuesday's 120-101 win over the Rockets.
With Derrick Favors (knee) sidelined for the past seven games, the Jazz have been in need for more scoring from their frontcourt, and Gobert has certainly answered the bell. The towering center has hit double figures in the scoring column in six of those seven contests, averaging 13.6 points per game while shooting 67.3 percent from the field and 72.5 percent from the free-throw line. Gobert has further supplemented his strong offensive outputs with his usual dominant defensive stats (12.6 rebounds and 3.1 blocks per game) during that stretch, making him one of the hottest fantasy centers going at the moment.
