Is this what all the experts and analysts were talking about leading up to the playoffs when they said Luc Mbah a Moute was such a good defender? It’s obvious from the clip that had Gobert been standing, the court was so wide open between him and the basket that it would have been an easy two points. He stopped the play. 👏🏻
I get that teams on defense usually turn it up for the playoffs, reaching deep into their bag of dirty tricks, but come on. You can see Luc Mbah a Moute grabbing Gobert’s shorts on the replay! This sucks! Hard contact was definitely intentional, even if taking out his knees wasn’t. I’m glad the Jazz won! Now all we got to do is take care of business at home to end the Clippers era!
