The Utah Jazz are in need of a win Wednesday to even their first-round NBA Playoff matchup with the Denver Nuggets up at a game a piece.
Whether he was attempting to show he still has the ability to dominate on defense or something completely different, Jazz star Rudy Gobert put up a classic sequence of flops.
It came against Nuggets center Nikola Jokic, and has to be seen to be believed.
As you can see, Gobert put up the flop to end all flops during Jokic’s first drive. He was than legitimately elbowed in the face as the officials on hand at Walt Disney World decided to ignore it.
Later in the first quarter, the former NBA Defensive Player of the Year was seemingly worried about the previous situation repeating itself. The end result? A three-pointer from Jokic.
At this point, Utah might have to start thinking about putting another guy on The Joker. It seems like Gobert is seeing ghosts out there.
