Gobert registered 35 points (13-14 FG, 9-12 FT), 13 rebounds, four blocks, one assist, and one steal in 38 minutes during Wednesday's 108-101 victory versus the Knicks. Gobert was incredibly efficient, following up Monday's career high in blocks (eight) with a career best in scoring. Gobert has scored in double figures during 13 of 14 appearances since the All-Star break, this after finishing with less than 10 points nine times in his first 57 games of 2016-17.
Gobert produced 16 points (7-12 FG, 2-6 FT), 14 rebounds, eight blocks and three assists across 37 minutes during a 107-100 loss to the Pacers on Monday. The eight swats were a season high for Gobert, who now has 13 blocks in his last two outings. He was also just two blocks shy of a triple-double. Gobert is in very strong late-season form, with averages of 14.4 points on 66.7 percent shooting, 13.0 rebounds, 4.0 blocks and 2.8 assists per game over the last five outings.
Gobert posted 13 points (5-11 FG, 3-6 FT), 13 rebounds, five blocks and two assists across 35 minutes during a 95-86 loss to the Bulls on Saturday. Gobert was the best all-around performer for the team in the loss before he fouled out late in the game. The five blocks marked his highest total since Jan. 26 against the Lakers. Gobert has now double-doubled in six of his last seven outings. Expect big numbers from him going down the stretch as the team fights for playoff positioning.
Gobert scored 20 points (10-13 FG, 0-1 FT) and added 19 rebounds, two steals, two blocks, and one assist in 37 minutes during Thursday's 91-83 loss to the Cavaliers. Gobert missed a game last weekend, but he has returned without missing a beat. He is one rebound shy of three straight double-doubles, and is averaging 2.3 blocks per game in this stretch. He'll look to keep his strong play going Saturday against a Bulls squad that has struggled to rebound since the All-Star break.
Gobert (knee) will play and start at center in Monday's game against the Clippers, Tony Jones of the Salt Lake Tribune reports. Gobert was a late scratch from Saturday's game against the Thunder, but it appears to be just a minor ailment, as he'll rejoin the lineup after just a one-game absence. Look for Gobert to take on his usual spot in the starting five at center and he shouldn't be on any restrictions, which means Jeff Withey should head back to the bench in the corresponding move and see a decreased role moving forward.
