Donovan Mitchell cash: “I said that about Rudy at the end of the season”

The Jazz tackled concerning Rudy Gobert!



For his first minutes alongside Karl-Anthony Towns, Rudy Gobert did not take long to find his bearings. Both men had some good moments, although there is still a lot of work to be done to come close to perfection. However, confidence reigns in this squad, at least according to KAT. The pivot did not hesitate to tackle the former team of Gobzilla.

By bringing Rudy Gobert to Minnesota, the front office has clearly displayed its ambition within this Western Conference. The French naturally finds himself under a little pressure, he who will have to prove that he is capable of helping this team to take a step forward. A challenge well within reach of the pivot. Despite a somewhat cold reaction at the time of the exchange, the players are even confident for the future.

Rudy Gobert misused at Jazz?

This is for example the case of Karl-Anthony Towns, already a big fan of his new teammate. Both men showed some great things this Friday in a matchup against the Nets. Gobert even took the opportunity to have fun against poor Kevin Durant. But like KAT, we especially remember that the Wolves do not use Rudy in a similar way to Jazz.

Dane Moore: “Karl-Anthony Towns discussed Rudy Gobert being underused offensively at Utah, and how he can help Gobert unleash his game.”

KAT: “I think he’s a very good defender. Most of the time, it’s just a matter of knowing where to stand. He is a very good defender in 1vs1. An excellent rebounder. Very good on switches too. A very good counter. The most important thing for him is not much, but knowing who he is up against, the different situations. Depending on whether I’m on the floor or not, he’ll have to do things differently defensively. »

“It’s never going to be perfect because it’s basketball, but if we can take advantage of the other team’s weaknesses and limit them, we’ll be really tough. To have someone else who can get the rebounds and who can block is really important. »

A relationship that starts well between the two pivots, while this preparation is quite complicated for them. KAT having spent time in the hospital, he had the right to only one real training alongside Rudy according to his words. A small anomaly for the Wolves, not necessarily worried about this start to the season. Needless to say, this number will be closely monitored.

Everything is rolling between Rudy Gobert and Karl-Anthony Towns. The latter even allows himself to say that Jazz has never been able to use the Frenchman correctly, a sentence that should not shock that much. In a new team, full of confidence, the native of Saint-Quentin has every intention of rectifying that. Looking forward to more…
