Utah Jazz Downbeat #2050: The “We Need a Gobert” Edition

Your Thursday Downbeat!

NBA: Utah Jazz at Houston Rockets Erik Williams-USA TODAY Sports

Phew Excuse me while I catch my breath. I think I am okay now. Sorry I am done now. I promise.

For some reason beating the Houston Rockets makes me so happy. I love beating the Rockets. I love that the Utah Jazz tend to beat them in big games. I love that no matter the era we are able to beat them in Houston. When the final seconds of the game wound down, this happiness just overcame me. I loved checking Twitter. I loved knowing that Moni would soon be posting the OGT from the Dream Shake. There is just so much happiness when we beat the Rockets.

Last night’s win was big. Not as big as 2007 Game 7 wins, 2008 Games 1 and 2, or obviously 1997 WCF Game 6 big, but it was big.

Amar has you recovered with the recap. Spencer’s got you for the video highlights. And Moni has the Dream Shake OGT for us all.

Some highlights from Moni’s OGT.

The Rockets just aren’t good enough.

We need to play some scrub teams so we can get back the false sense that they are contenders.Posted by Bobbythegreat on Mar 8, 2017 | 7:37 PM

Rodney Hood can get calls,

James Harden? Not so much. You’d think they were playing in SLC.

Hood hates us.

Where was that foul?

This is incredible. Rockets are getting hit a lot, Hood has a guy near him.

Wow. This whistle.

Hood only averages 13?? thought this scrub would average more

he averages like 20+ against us

He’s bad against everyone else.

And my very favorite

We need a Gobert……

Go read the rest for a good laugh.

Rudy Gobert was once again proving that he should not only be DPOY by his performance in last night’s game but also an All-NBA player.

Look at his line:

Look at his block:

Look at his dunk:

Look at this!

And he is all ours!

What is Rudy’s response to that last tweet?

Rudy is referring to this:

The Jazz currently sit in 4th in the Western Conference. They are #1 in the Northwest. The Jazz have not won their division since the 2007-2008 season! They have already beat their wins from last season!


Open Poll:

At the end of the season the Jazz will finish 3rd, 4th, 5th, or 6th in the Western Conference?

The Jazz will finish with what has their final record?
