Last night the Utah Jazz (suiting up barely enough players, 10) beat the Minnesota Timberwolves, who were themselves without a few key pieces. But in reality, if you are playing chess it doesn't matter how many pawns are off the board if you still have a zone dominating rook. That rook, not a rookie, for the Jazz is clearly Rudy Gobert. The sky is the limit for this guy, but with his standing reach and athleticism, he may just reach it.

Take a look at what he did last night, from both the Timberwolves and Jazz broadcasts. It's an interesting study between happiness and a few stages of grief.

At the end of the night Gobert finished with 13 points (70+ fg%), 11 rebounds, and 6 blocks. His assist and steal were icing on the cake. It's hard to keep this guy off the floor when he has such an amazing impact on both ends of the floor.
