Rudy Gobert Ruled Out For Game 3, Jazz May Use Hack-A Strategy 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Thu Apr 20, 2017 10:45 pm

The Utah Jazz have ruled out Rudy Gobert with Game 3.


Gobert was injured in the opening seconds of Game 1 with a hyperextended knee.


The Jazz are considering a Hack-A-Clippers strategy to help defend the Clippers, who scored 60 points in the paint in Game 2.


"I think we have to consider every situation," Quin Snyder said. "There are a lot of factors that go into it, from whether we are in the bonus to time and score. It's certainly something that we're well aware of."


"Whatever coach wants to do, I'm definitely on board with,"  Derrick Favors said. "We trust coach. Honestly, I want to win and do whatever it takes."

Utah was 2/3 rebounds and 2 offensive baskets away from taking Game 2.
I'm confident they can take LAC out.

They're playing it safe with Rudy, you don't have to make him play considering we took 1 game away from LAC.
They'll sit him game 4 also if we go up 2-1.

Why would you not foul DJ every time he he touched the ball? It's worth it just to break up their flow.
