Houston Rockets vs Utah Jazz
*Gobert got ejected in just 3' of play against the Rockets in their most recent meeting, a couple of weeks ago, after his overreaction straight off a typical Harden flop.
Gobert is among the leaders (7th) in Blocks in the league, with 1.93 Blocks per game. It is never wise to try to attack the basket when Gobert is around but the Rockets, and Harden specifically, just do what they always do with no regard to the opponent. Gobert's retaliation could very easily be some Blocks on Harden that will make it to the top 10 but in any case, the way the Rockets are attacking the basket leads to several blocks; opposing Centers average 2.7 blocks per game against the Rockets.
Gobert had 3 blocks in Game 1 of the series against the Rockets and he now has at least 2 blocks in his last 7 meetings with the Rockets (ejection game excluded).
