He made some defensive plays, but the Jazz also got a lot of buckets against him in drop. Gobert was making more plays and was a more consistent force on defense before it came off the rails with the late fouling.
Gobert was everywhere and the clear MVP for the Jazz. If you’re looking for the best Sixer tonight, I’d actually give that to Josh Richardson who was very efficient and made lots of plays on defense.
Using the same approach, Gobert had 14 on 12 shooting possessions (which were limited to bunnies outside of his FTs). I think fans in general are less inclined to value FT shooting which Embiid was able to capitalize on.
Richardson was great but I'd still give the edge to Embiid. Need Horford/Tobias to play better (and Ben to get healthy).
Solid win by the Jazz though. Big fan of that team.
