Rudy Gobert finished Tuesday’s victory over the Thunder with 17 points (6-10 FG, 5-6 FT), 16 rebounds, four blocks, and one steal across 36 minutes.
Gobert notched his fourth double-double in six games as he continues to be a dominant force in the frontcourt for the Timberwolves. KAT and Gobert are meshing well and have become one of the best frontcourt tandems in the NBA. The Frenchman is even shooting an outstanding 58.6% from the charity stripe and has gone 11-of-14 from the line in his last four appearances. While fantasy managers shouldn't expect those numbers to continue, they have to be thrilled with Gobert's all-around production this season. The big man will look to keep his hot hand Thursday against Jazz, where he'll likely be asked to take on a larger load offensively with the Timberwolves' leading scorer, Anthony Edwards (hip), possibly sidelined.
