SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Jazz center Rudy Gobert rejected a shot attempt at the rim by Heat guard Tyler Herro during the third quarter of Utah’s scrimmage against Miami.

Gobert ended the game with 21 points on 8-9 shooting.

He added 8 rebounds and 2 blocks.

He posted a plus-minus rating of +15, which was tied with Royce O’Neale for a Jazz-high.

The Jazz defeated the Heat 101-99.
