Rudy Gobert took advantage of the center-less Suns on Monday and racked up 18 points, 17 rebounds and four blocks in 36 minutes of a 106-101 win.
Gobert hit 8-of-12 shots and also had a steal, and we were simply a year too early on predicting his breakout season. It's happening before our eyes, as he's averaging 12.3 points, 12.4 rebounds and 2.5 blocks per game. Tyson Chandler was out and Alex Len played just 21 minutes, leaving Gobert to roam free without much opposition tonight. Jan 17 - 12:04 AM

Rudy Gobert scored 19 points with a season-high 19 rebounds, two assists and two blocks on Saturday against the Magic.

This was his 27th consecutive game with double-digit rebounds and he now has five double-doubles in the month of January. Gobert continues to have a great season, averaging career highs with 12.1 points, 12.3 rebounds, and 2.5 blocks per game, as well as a 65.8 field goal percentage.
Jan 15 - 12:24 AM

Rudy Gobert made just 1-of-3 FGs and 3-of-6 FTs for five points on Sunday, adding 13 rebounds with two assists, three steals, one block and four turnovers.

Utah was playing their fifth game in a seven-day stretch and they were facing the Grizzlies' defense -- the result was a mere 79 points for Utah on 38.9 percent shooting. Gobert has been rolling along after a slow start to the season, and his 23 straight games with double-digit rebounds is a franchise record for the Jazz.

Rudy Gobert scored 12 points with 13 rebounds, one assist, one steal and four blocks in 31 minutes against the Wolves on Saturday.

This isn't even news anymore. Gobert leads the NBA in blocks, but he relinquished his lead for field goal percentage to DeAndre Jordan -- Gobert is still first in true shooting percentage. He deserves an All-Star spot and the Jazz should get hot now that they are finally healthy.
Jan 7 - 11:45 PM

Rudy Gobert scored 15 points on 3-of-10 from the field and 9-of-10 from the line in a 101-93 loss to the Raptors on Thursday, adding 16 rebounds and three blocks.

That bumps him up to 2.57 blocks per game, which passes Anthony Davis to be the top man in the NBA in that department. He's also cleaning up on the glass these days with at least 13 each of his last five. On the down side, Gobert has struggled with his shot. He's still the NBA's best roll man and is showing no signs of slowing down down.
Jan 5 - 10:41 PM

Rudy Gobert scored eight points with 13 rebounds and one block against the Celtics on Tuesday.

He finished 3-of-8 from the field and 2-of-2 from the line in 34 minutes, and he set a Jazz franchise record with 21 straight games with 10 or more rebounds. This was a quiet line by Gobert's standards this season, but he should back nicely in a great matchup with the Raptors on Thursday -- Toronto is one of the worst rebounding teams in the NBA.
Jan 3 - 10:19 PM

Rudy Gobert scored 15 points with 16 rebounds, two assists, one steal and three blocks in Monday's win over the Nets.

He finished 5-of-10 from the field and 5-of-9 from the line with a pair of turnovers in 38 minutes. Per StatMuse, Gobert shot 77.8 percent from the field in December, the highest mark in the NBA in a single month since the 1983-84 season. If that's any indication, Gobert is poised for even bigger things in 2017.
Jan 2 - 10:50 PM

Rudy Gobert scored 18 points during a 91-86 win over the Suns on Saturday, adding 13 rebounds and three blocks in 37 minutes.

The NBA's leader in efficiency strengthened his lead, making 7-of-8 from the field and 4-of-5 from the line. Gobert has grabbed double-digit boards in every game since Thanksgiving and has tied Karl-Anthony Towns for fourth in the NBA for double-doubles. He's an All-Star in our book and his fantasy owners likely stole him in drafts.

Rudy Gobert hit 3-of-5 shots for nine points, with 13 rebounds, two blocks and two steals in Thursday’s blowout victory against Philadelphia.

Gobert snapped an 11-game streak with a double-double and finished one point short of his 23rd double-double of the season. He is averaging career highs with 12.9 points, 11.9 rebounds, 2.6 blocks, a 69.7 field goal percentage and a 67.0 free throw percentage. Fantasy owners who invested in him this season are getting a great return on their investment.

Rudy Gobert had 12 points, 11 boards, a steal, two blocks and a season-high six turnovers in Tuesday's 102-100 win over the Lakers.

We were hoping for a little more against the defensively-challenged Lakers, but then again, it's hard to argue with a solid double-double. The TOs were definitely a buzzkill, but not a cause for a concern. His previous season high was four, recorded in his third game of the season, and he hadn't had more than three turnovers in any of his 12 previous December games.

Quin Snyder praised Rudy Gobert for his competitiveness on the basketball court.

"Rudy really wants to win. That’s really the most important thing to him," Snyder said. "When you get a guy that’s that committed and that ambitious and that dedicated, when you throw in the fact that they like winning, it’s a pretty unique combination and one that I’m grateful that I get a chance to coach him." Utah's head coach has a special connection to his center, a relationship he was able to articulate in this article. "We feel like we’ve had a partnership from an early stage. I threw him in the starting lineup in his second year, his first year with me, and I believed in him and I still really believe in him." It's amazing what an individual is capable of doing with a strong support system, clear appreciation and a sense of purpose to his work. Gobert is having a monster season, averaging 12.5 points, 11.9 rebounds and 2.6 blocks on 69.8 percent shooting, including 67.8 percent from the charity stripe.

Rudy Gobert scored 13 points in a 104-98 loss to the Raptors on Friday with 14 rebounds, one assist, one steal and one turnover.

He made all three from the line to get him to 74.1 percent from there over his last nine. Also in that span, Gobert averaged 16.6 points, 13.3 boards, 2.6 blocks and 0.7 steals on 81.5 percent from the field. He has been a top-five player in the time, so his owners can keep patting themselves on the back.

Rudy Gobert kept his double-double streak alive on Tuesday, scoring 11 points on 5-of-6 shooting to go with 16 rebounds, one assist, two blocks and two turnovers in 31 minutes.

Gobert had his double-double by halftime, and he currently leads the league in true shooting percentage (71.6) and ranks second in total blocks with 76 (just one behind Anthony Davis). He’s also upped his scored to 12.6 a night and he’s been better with the turnovers (1.7). Basically, Gobert is looking like a post-hype All-Star with top-25 value on the year, and the 24-year-old is showing no signs of falling off.

Rudy Gobert dominated his matchup vs. Marc Gasol on Sunday, hitting 9-of-9 shots for 21 points, 12 rebounds, three blocks and one steal in 38 minutes.

Gobert is holding opposing players to 6.2 percent below their typical shooting averages when he guards them, and he's anchoring one of the league's toughest defenses (allowing 101.6 points per 100 possessions). He held Gasol to 3-of-16 shooting tonight and has now posted seven consecutive double-doubles during Utah's recent hot streak. He's crushing his preseason valuation.

Rudy Gobert scored 17 points with 14 rebounds and six blocks against the Kings on Saturday.

The blocks were a season high and he was just one block short of his career best. He hit 5-of-6 from the field and continues to impress at the free throw line, hitting 7-of-8 freebies. He bumped his free throw percentage up to 67.6 percent on the season and head coach Quin Snyder joked after the game that Gobert might have to start taking their technicals if he keeps improving. He's retuning early-round value right now and we don't see that changing.
