Coming into Monday night’s game against the Lakers, Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert had played 180 games in the NBA. Nearly 4,300 minutes. 812 field goals attempted. Not once had he hit a shot outside of ten feet:

There it is! Just call him Steph Curry!
It should be noted that the Jazz beat the Lakers by about 300 points and those are the type of games in which Rudy Gobert apparently makes 19-foot jumpers. So what’s next for the Gobert Report? Can he build on his one-game streak of 19-foot jumpers? Will we be seeing some Gobert trey balls? One can only hope. That wasn’t a bad stroke by any means.
