    Default Does Rudy Gobert employ a bit of the ol' "empty stats" ?

    23 points and a loss to the ROCKETS?

    Should he stick to the putbacks and screens?

    Is every point scored by a player on the losing side "empty?"

    Nah. He like most defenders is hard to judge by any stat(including the “advanced” ones). The whole idea of empty stats is hard to take serious when people tend to only apply it to people losing who they don’t like….and not anyone who loses. Short of a few people who’s teams had unusual consistency….Bird…Duncan…guys like that? People who played the same way their entire careers could be called empty stats or winners based on nothing but how their organization performs around them.

    Not that you actually wanted to discuss it as a concept.

    By scoring that high, he forgot to concentrate on grabbing more rebounds.

    "What are we thinking about when they have two guys that can shoot the ball on the floor and we give frequent shots to those guys?" Gobert said.

    He asked the question, but he didn't give the answer.


    Houston's Garrison Mathews went 5 of 9 from deep on his way to 23 points; Kevin Porter Jr. was 3 of 6 from deep, including a dagger with 22 seconds left in regulation that put the Rockets up by 5 points.
    come on those guys must be yours!

    The Houston Rockets shot 22/45 from the three-point line tonight. In the history of the NBA, only 29 times has a team made 49% of a minimum 45 three-point attempts. Those teams are 28-1, per stats.nba.com.


    Let me repeat that. Since the NBA created the three-point line in 1979, what happened to the Jazz tonight has only happened 29 other times. Only once has a team come out of that with a win.
    damn you Rudy!

    I mean i observed that in the recent games that his team won with him playing, he scored lesser while having more boards at the same time. In some of those wins, he had a double-double.

    when he went to the perimeter they scored at the rim. Same old problem. He can't be everywhere
