Rudy Gobert Keeps Jazz Alive With Three Straight Putbacks
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Rudy Gobert kept the Jazz in the basketball game with three straight putbacks in Game 5 against the Clippers on Wednesday.
The Clippers looked like they were starting to pull away from the Jazz but Rudy Gobert had something to say about that. Donovan Mitchell missed a midrange jumper when Gobert got on the offensive glass and threw down the dunk.
After a Terance Mann three-pointer, Bojan Bogdanovic missed a shot in the lane when Gobert once again grabbed the offensive rebound and tipped the shot into the basket.
