Donovan Mitchell just had his first media availability since his concussion. Said he developed a slight headache during the game but didn’t initially think anything of it. Said he started feeling worse throughout the night, with headaches and nausea. – 1:25 PM Sarah Todd @NBASarah

Donovan Mitchell dismisses reports that there are problems between him and Rudy Gobert. “That’s just not true…we’re good.”

Said he just shakes his head and gets frustrated that they even have to answer questions about it – 1:21 PM Ryan Miller @millerjryan

Donovan Mitchell on the reports he and Rudy Gobert are at odds: “No, no, no — we’re good. That’s just not true.” – 1:15 PM Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba

Donovan Mitchell on reports that he and Rudy Gobert are beefing again: no, no, no, no, no….we’re good. That’s just not true – 1:14 PM Tim MacMahon @espn_macmahon

Draymond Green criticizes Rudy Gobert over emotional response to 2019 All-Star snub: ‘You can’t cry’ nba.nbcsports.com/2022/02/04/dra… – 11:51 AM David Locke @DLocke09

LOCKED ON JAZZ — Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert are all-stars and really good, who do we want and the biggest all-star snub – lockedonjazz.net/jazz/donovan-m… – 10:37 AM Tommy Beer @TommyBeer

Dating back to late December (a 20-game stretch), Mitchell Robinson is averaging:

10.6 points (on 82% shooting)

9.5 rebounds,

1.5 blocks.

Only two other players are averaging at least 10.5 points, 9.5 boards and 1.5 swats during this span:

Joel Embiid and Rudy Gobert. – 9:39 AM Ben Anderson @BensHoops

Rudy Gobert should ask Draymond Green to be the presenter at his Hall of Fame induction ceremony. – 9:33 PM Eric Koreen @ekoreen

There are exceptions, but I think despite how much coaches talk defence, they gravitate toward voting for guys they have to game plan toward stopping.

In general, it’s harder for a defensive-minded big to break through. Saw it with Gobert, and is case with Middleton over Allen. – 8:14 PM Monte Poole @MontePooleNBCS

Draymond won’t count out the DPOY despite missing at least 25 games. Makes unnamed reference to Rudy Gobert winning it when playing 56 of 82 games in 2017-18. – 8:06 PM Sam Quinn @SamQuinnCBS

The most fun possible iteration of the All-Star Game would be just picking the captains and letting them draft any player in the NBA.

LeBron using the final pick on Carmelo instead of Rudy Gobert would be the absolute funniest possible Twitter moment relating to the ASG. – 7:36 PM The Vertical @YahooSportsNBA

Jerami Grant and Harrison Barnes are two of the players the Jazz have had trade talks for, league sources say. With one week to go until the trade deadline, Utah is targeting wings that can defend. Here’s my video on Utah’s need for more quality defenders around Rudy Gobert: – 2:07 PM

More on this storyline

The last couple of days has been full of petty sniping back and forth in press conferences: first, Gobert noted how the Jazz didn’t have the winning habits of the teams above them in the Western Conference, the Warriors and the Suns. Then, he noted how impressed he was with Devin Booker’s defense with the Suns over the last couple of years. If you don’t think that’s a shot at Mitchell’s defense, well, I have a bridge to sell you, you poor gullible sweetheart. But Mitchell (and Clarkson), who liked Gobert’s tweet, didn’t exactly come off any better. When they were asked about Gobert’s comments, they gave fairly passive-aggressive comments themselves. And honestly, the quotes from those two, while not benign in verbiage, undersold the annoyance that was apparent in their voices. Oh, and of course, there’s the fact that Gobert, at heart, was basically right about their defense — one way to get Gobert to stop being honest about the team’s bad defense is to just play better defense. -via Salt Lake Tribune / January 17, 2022 Eric Walden: Donovan noted that having 3 days off from games, and having the time to be able to sit down and watch film together, plus get in a few practices helped iron out a lot of the communication issues. -via Twitter @tribjazz / January 17, 2022 “That’s the team that we know we can be,” Gobert said. “It’s exciting to see that we have another gear that we can tap into. But this is what we are going to have to bring every single night. “It was important for us to come out tonight and play the right way. It’s a long season, and we know that everything is not always going to be perfect. We know that we are going to have some tough stretches. But if we can keep getting better, we feel like we are going to be in great shape come playoff time. It’s exciting to see what we are capable of doing. So we need to keep building great habits.” -via The Athletic / January 17, 2022
