  • Watch an unrepentant Rudy Gobert block a small child's shot into oblivion

    Hey kids, think before you challenge Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert. NBA players blocking children into oblivion will never not be fun. It was fun when Kevin Durant destroyed the dreams of basketball campers hoping to return home with a story about the time they beat an MVP.

  • How the Utah Jazz became the team nobody in the West playoffs wants to face

    On Jan. 15, the Utah Jazz were 17-26, nine games under .500 and five games out of the playoffs, they were without injured big man Rudy Gobert, not to mention the Jazz were still trying to figure out their offense in the wake of Gordon Hayward’s summer departure. Since then the Jazz are 31-7, and their defense — anchored by likely Defensive Player of the Year Gobert — is allowing less than a point per possession. Utah will enter the playoffs as anywhere from the three to five seed and there is no team in the West thinking the Jazz would be an easy out.

  • Utah’s Rudy Gobert still out, to be re-evaluated in two weeks

    Flukey knee injuries have limited Utah’s Rudy Gobert — one of the best rim-protecting big man in the NBA — to just 18 games this season, including the last eight. It will be a couple more weeks at least before he is back on the court, the Jazz announced. Gobert was reevaluated on Saturday by Utah Jazz medical staff and is showing progress to make a return.
