Midway through the third quarter, Gobert was having a big game for the Jazz. He was up to 15 points, 20 rebounds and three blocks in 21 minutes on the floor. He was shooting 5-of-6 from the field and 5-for-9 from the free throw line.
The Jazz have fought their way back into the game after the Warriors led by as much as 13 early in the first quarter after Stephen Curry dropped 14 points, knocking down three triples.
Their game in San Francisco starts a five-game road trip. The Jazz will head to the east coast for three straight before ending the trip in Chicago.
