Utah's Rudy Gobert Thinks Dion Waiters Targeted His Knee on goal

Utah’s Rudy Gobert gets knocked down but comes back swinging in loss to the Miami Heat

Saturday Night, NBA TV Odds: Brooklyn Nets at Utah Jazz

Gobert suffered the injury on Friday night in the Jazz' 84-74 loss to the Miami Heat after being tangled up with Dion Waiters.

That will actually be Point 1 on this latest episode of the Three-Point Threat as I give my two cents on what has become a controversial play among Jazz fans and Rudy Gobert himself who referred to Waiters' move as a "dirty play." I didn't even know that was him. He averages 13.9 points, 10.5 points and 2.5 blocks per game. He has totaled eight double-doubles on the year and dating back to last season has totaled 244 blocks, the most in the National Basketball Association during that span.

Utah (6-7) now sits middle of the pack in the crowded Western Conference after losing four of their last five games.

Trump was responding to North Korea calling his South Korea speech days earlier: " reckless remarks by an old lunatic ".

After the injury, Gobert was miffed by the way Waiters crashed into his knee. "I just have to make sure I'm where I'm supposed to be offensively and defensively".

Closing out the night, the struggling Oklahoma City Thunder will try to get back on track against the lowly Dallas Mavericks. "Tell him to get out of his feelings and that's what it is, just like that". "We have to be prepared".

After being informed of Gobert's comment, Waiters was quick to defend his character, saying that he had no intention of hurting the Jazz's center during the play, per Andre Fernandez of The Miami Herald.
