  4. Rudy Gobert:

    James Harden said. FINISHING STRONG Snyder inserted Derrick Favors in the lineup in place of Rudy Gobert for the final 4 minutes of the fourth quarter. The move paid off. Derrick Favors totaled six points and six rebounds in 10 minutes in the quarter. All but one rebound came during the final three minutes to prevent Houston from making a late rally, like in Game 3. Rudy Gobert totaled four points, nine rebounds, and three blocks in 24 minutes. Rudy Gobert admitted to being surprised by the decision, but took it in stride. When hes on the floor and Im on the bench, of course I want to be out there, but if Rudy Gobert has a great game and the team is winning thats the most important thing, thats all that matters.

  5. Alex Stamos:
