The Jazz held the Pelicans to just 16 points in the 3rd quarter of their 33-point win over New Orleans on Wednesday night. A big reason was the defense of Rudy Gobert, who had the block of the night when he swatted a layup by Jrue Holiday to half-court.
Gobert also had 10 points and 16 boards (7 offensive) in just 30 minutes. Anthony Davis was held to just 12 points and 10 boards in 30 minutes but had a game-high 6 blocks, including this nasty one on Gobert.
