If Rudy Gobert thinks twice before defending Stephen Curry on the wing again, we can’t fault him.
The Golden State Warriors superstar bamboozled the Utah Jazz center Tuesday night during Game 2 of their second-round NBA playoff series. Gobert tried to help defend Curry in the second quarter but found himself helpless to stop one of the NBA’s best dribblers.
Although Gobert, a 7-footer, isn’t built for perimeter excellence, he can hold his own against most players. Yet Curry still turned Gobert inside-out and made him the butt of many Internet jokes.
The Warriors topped the Jazz 106-94.
