Xiao Yao You is starting to rub some people the wrong way
Default Re: 2013 Fall camp/Pre-Season!

LATE DUCK: Rudy Gobert had his best pro game against the Clippers, blocking five shots and snagging 12 rebounds. Of course, the 7-foot-1 center also had one of his shots blocked and, well, there was a play in which he graciously got out of Blake Griffin’s way en route to a monster slam.

The video of that play — titled “Griffin dunk, Gobert duck” at NBA.com — has made its rounds around the Internet.

Gobert smiled when asked about ducking out of Griffin’s way.

“I thought about blocking him,” the rookie said, “but when I saw him in the air, I said, ‘It’s too late.’ ”

COACH SPEAK: Jazz coach Tyrone Corbin thought Wednesday's game was the Jazz's best yet this preseason: "We’re growing. It’s just a slow process for us right now because of the guys in and out of the lineup."
