Gobert collected 11 points (3-6 FG, 5-7 FT), 12 rebounds, one assist and two steals across 31 minutes during the Jazz's 118-98 loss to the Rockets in Game 2 of their Western Conference first-round playoff series Wednesday. Gobert was more or less up to his usual level of production during the loss, although his shot attempts were down compared to Game 1. The Stifle Tower has back-to-back double-doubles to open the series, extending a streak that dates back to March 21. Gobert will look to pick his offensive involvement back up and generate a 13th straight double-double when the series shifts back to Utah for Game 3 on Saturday night.
Gobert produced 22 points (8-10 FG, 6-6 FT), 12 rebounds, one assist, and one block in 34 minutes during Sunday's 122-90 loss to Houston. Gobert was in the starting lineup as expected after missing the final game of the regular season with an ankle injury. He led the Jazz with 22 points on 8-of-10 shooting plus an impressive 6-of-6 from the free-throw line. Both he and Clint Capela had strong games and almost nullified each other's impact on both ends of the floor. Gobert and the Jazz are going to need to be much better on Wednesday if they hope to steal a game from the Rockets on their home court.
Gobert (ankle) is not on the injury report ahead of Sunday's Game 1 against the Rockets, Andy Larsen of KSL.com reports. Gobert missed Utah's regular-season finale due to an ankle injury, but he'll be good to go for Game 1. Against Houston this season, he's averaged 10.5 points, 10.0 rebounds, 2.0 blocks and 1.5 assists across 24.3 minutes.
Gobert will not play in Wednesday's season finale against the Clippers, Andy Larsen of the Salt Lake Tribune reports. The Jazz are listing Gobert with a "left ankle soreness" designation, but it's essentially a rest day for the big man, who will join Donovan Mitchell, Kyle Korver, Derrick Favors, Ricky Rubio and Raul Neto in street clothes.
Gobert turned in 21 points (8-11 FG, 5-8 FT), 10 rebounds, two assists and two blocked shots across 36 minutes in Sunday's 113-109 loss to the Lakers. With Derrick Favors (back) out of the lineup, Gobert had a heavier load to carry against the Lakers and put up excellent numbers despite the loss. This loss will make it difficult for Utah to move up in the playoff seeding, but Gobert will be a crucial component to their postseason success.
