Utah Jazz Player News: Last 24 hours, Centers

News: Gobert scored 16 points (8-11 FG) while adding 13 rebounds, two assists and a steal in 33 minutes during Saturday's 96-87 win over the Thunder.
Impact: While he didn't get credited with a block, Gobert's presence in the paint was a big factor in a stifling Jazz defense that held the Thunder to 14 points in the first quarter and limited Russell Westbrook to just six points on the night. The 25-year-old center has now kicked off the season with three straight double-doubles, and he figures to be among the league leaders in that category once again after racking up 58 of them in 2016-17.
News: Rudy Gobert scored 16 points Saturday on 8-of-11 shooting as the Utah Jazz defeated the Oklahoma City Thunder 96-87. Gobert grabbed 13 rebounds and had two assists, accumulating a plus-minus of -2 in his 32:30 of playing time. He added one steal.
Impact: Though he had a rare game without a block on a night where the Thunder were chucking up shots from the perimeter, Gobert was still a force on the boards and in the paint on the opposite end. The difference-making center has notched a double-double in all three of the Jazz's games.
