Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert is known for dominating the glass and shutting down opposing big men in the paint. A matchup against Minnesota Timberwolves center Karl-Anthony Towns changed that.
After Treveon Graham’s missed three-point attempt, Gobert thought he had the defensive position to grab the rebound. Instead, Towns yanked the ball away from Gobert’s grasp then threw down a ferocious dunk as the NBA’s back-to-back Defensive Player of the Year fell to the ground.
It’s extraordinarily rare to see Gobert get completely overwhelmed to this point. He’s one of the most dominant players in the paint and Towns outmuscled him like a pillow.
