After the All-Star break last season, the Utah Jazz improved so much in terms of defense. After they have sent Enes Kanter to OKC, Rudy “The Stifel Tower” Gobert shines and made the Jazz interior defense leaps to upper level.
(Watch the video below.)
But today, it seems that the presence of Gobert in the middle is not a factor as what they called “the best player in the league”, Lebron James dunked the Frenchman in a thunderous manner.
It was on the first quarter between Utah Jazz and Cleveland Cavaliers, Kevin Love received the ball from Mo Williams and found LeBron James free from the base line. Love bounced-pass to James and Gobert couldn’t do anything but to watch Lebron soar in the air for an easy two points.
The Jazz have six players in double figures led by Alec Burks with 24 points while Lebron, Love and Williams led the attack with 31 points, 22 points and 29 points respectively. Rudy Gobert one of the best swatters in the league logged 0 blocks. Final score Cavs 118 Jazz 114.
