Gobert contributed 21 points (7-8 FG, 7-15 FT), 15 rebounds, four assists and two blocks across 39 minutes during a 102-91 loss to the Warriors on Saturday. Gobert had possibly his best game of the playoffs, as he missed just one field goal attempt, got to the free throw line a playoff-high 15 times and dished out a playoff-high four assists. He also picked up his second straight double-double and fourth of the playoffs. The team will have its season on the line in Game 4.
Gobert tallied 16 points (8-12 FG, 0-1 FT), 16 rebounds, one steal and one block over 37 minutes during Thursday's 115-104 loss to the Warriors in Game 2 of the Western Conference semifinals. The 24-year-old followed up a solid Game 1 effort (13 points, eight rebounds, three assists, two blocks and one steal) with one of his trademark double-doubles, his third overall of the postseason. Gobert looks like he has completely shaken off the knee scare he suffered in Game 1 of the first round versus the Clippers, and he should be a pivotal factor in the Jazz's attempts to cut their series deficit in half beginning in Game 3 on Saturday.
Gobert (ankle) had one point (0-1 FG, 1-2 FT) and four rebounds in 13 minutes during Sunday's 104-91 win against the Clippers in Game 7. Gobert was in foul trouble the entire game while fighting the Clippers' DeAndre Jordan down low, but the Jazz were still able to advance. Gobert's lateral quickness will be challenged against the Warriors in the second round, but the Defensive Player of the Year candidate should be expected to see plenty of minutes if he can avoid getting into foul trouble again in Tuesday's Game 1.
Gobert (ankle) will play in Sunday's Game 7 against the Clippers, Aaron Falk of the Salt Lake Tribune reports. Gobert's availability was originally up in the air after he left Friday's Game 6 during the fourth quarter with a left ankle sprain, but he'll ultimately play through any lingering pain in Sunday's elimination game. He'll draw the start at center per usual, with Derrick Favors and Boris Diaw also seeing minutes in the Jazz's frontcourt.
Gobert was removed from Friday's Game 6 loss to the Clippers in the fourth quarter with a mild left ankle sprain, but will be good to go for Sunday's Game 7, the Associated Press reports. X-rays conducted on Gobert's ankle came back negative, and though he may still be dealing with some residual soreness once Sunday arrives, it's not anything that will result in his workload being limited with the Jazz needing all hands on deck to advance to the second round of the playoffs. Prior to his departure, Gobert enjoyed another productive outing, tallying 15 points (5-10 FG, 5-10 FT), nine rebounds, three blocks, two assists and two steals across 33 minutes.
