Rudy Gobert sprains knee in Jazz win

Rudy Gobert sprains knee in Jazz win

We'd all be annoyed in that situation. The Raptors have lost the opening game in eight consecutive playoff series. "Now we've got to see what we're made of".

Game 2 is Monday in San Antonio.

Plainly, this sucks. Gobert, one of the frontrunners for Defensive Player of the Year and the league's most effective rim protector, was expected to be a DeAndre Jordan and Blake Griffin neutralizer and to put more pressure on the Clippers' outside shooting.

Monday will be more of a day for preparing their game plan.

"I think we felt and knew that a lot of people probably were counting us out when he went down", Johnson said.

"I think it was very motivating considering the fact that he's a big part of what we do, especially defensively", said Johnson on Gobert's injury.

The game everyone assumed was over in the first seconds actually was not decided until the final second ticked off the clock.

The series pegged as the most competitive matchup of the first round was dealt a serious blow after just 11 seconds.

We'll let you know as soon as we hear or know anything about the injury, of course.

The Clippers remain confident. Paul nearly carried the Clippers into overtime by scoring 20 of his 25 points in the second half, but Johnson topped Paul's tying shot.

"Nobody died", Redick said. You're not going to go 16-0. So if you miss, the game's over? You make your adjustments. "There's no grieving going on".

It paid off when Johnson drove the lane and hit a floater at the buzzer, giving the Jazz a 97-95 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers after Utah lost Rudy Gobert 17 seconds into their playoff opener on Saturday night.

Minutes after the injury occurred, the Jazz confirmed Gobert wouldn't return, citing he suffered a sprain in his left knee.

"Not just necessarily to Gobert, but tendencies, plays running with his strength and his tendencies in mind", Griffin said.

Yes, I blame Griffin on the last play too. "Sometimes when that happens, it shakes up your gameplan a little bit". But still, we have to be better, just in our principle, and the rules of our defensive principles are the things that don't ever change. Obviously, we have the best record but we're not defending a championship.
