Gobert finished with 12 points (5-6 FG, 2-4 FT), 10 rebounds, two assists and two steals in 42 minutes during Friday's 131-119 Game 6 loss to the Clippers. Gobert had just a combined two blocks across the final four games of the series, with Utah losing all four contests to get bounced from the playoffs. Overall, Gobert finished the playoffs with averages of 14.7 points, 12.3 rebounds and 2.1 blocks while shooting 74.1 percent from the field.
Gobert had 12 points (5-6 FG, 2-4 FT), 10 rebounds, two assists and two steals in 42 minutes in Friday's 131-119 loss against the Clippers. Gobert had a modest offensive performance with just one missed shot but looked lost and confused on defense, particularly in the second half. The Clippers inserted Terrence Mann into Friday's starting five and went with a small-ball lineup that completely took Gobert off his game. The Clippers had five shooters on the floor for most of the game and one was always open. They were spread out along the three-point line while Gobert was down low trying to be a rim protector. He did not record a blocked shot for a second straight game and was constantly being taken out of position. The 2021 NBA Defensive MVP finished with a game-low -24 and will head into the offseason with a bitter taste in his mouth after a disappointing playoff exit.
Gobert ended with 17 points (6-8 FG, 5-8 FT), 10 rebounds, one assist and one steal in 42 minutes during Wednesday's 119-111 loss to the Clippers. Gobert finished with a double-double in the loss but surprisingly came up empty when it came to blocked shots. The Clippers continue to play a style of offense that is able to negate his impact on the defensive end, something that is going to have to be rectified if they are to advance to the Western Conference Finals.
Gobert finished with 11 points (4-4 FG, 3-4 FT), eight rebounds and one block in 32 minutes during Monday's 118-104 loss to the Clippers. Gobert was basically taken out of the equation by the Clippers who went primarily with a small-ball lineup. A tactic that has been implemented throughout the series thus far, Gobert was simply unable to impact the game on either end of the floor. This strategy is almost certainly going to repeat itself in Game 5 and so the Jazz will hoping he can have more of a tangible influence on the game, at least on the defensive end of the floor.
Gobert totaled 12 points (4-7 FG, 4-4 FT), 10 rebounds, a steal and a blocked shot over 30 minutes in Saturday's loss to the Clippers in Game 3 of the Western Conference Semifinals. The big man's performance paled in comparison to his 13-point, 20-rebound, three-block effort in Game 2, but Gobert still finished with his seventh double-double this postseason. He also extended his streak of contests with at least one blocked shot to 11 games, including each of his eight playoff contests. Gobert and the Jazz will look to get back on track in Game 4 of the series Monday.
