Sources: Rudy Gobert has cleared the NBA’s health and safety protocols. The Jazz went 1-4 with a 120.8 defensive rating without their All-NBA big man. – 11:28 AM

The right move in West would be three guards and two frontcourt so starters would be Steph, Morant, Doncic, LeBron & Jokic. Or convert Booker to SF. Or start Gobert since Jazz went in tank when we went out. #NBA2:19 PM

Donovan Mitchell drops from seventh to eighth in the West.

I’m glad the fan vote doesn’t solely decide the All Star starters anymore
In the West, AD and Melo are ahead of Gobert and Ayton while Klay is ahead of Booker, Paul and Mitchell
In the East, Kyrie and D Rose lead VanVleet, Garland and Jaylen

Cavs beat Jazz 111-91.
Clarkson led the Jazz with 22 points. Eric Paschall had 18, Donovan Mitchell had 17. Lamar Stevens led all scorers with 23.
4-game losing streak without Rudy Gobert.
A well-timed 3-day break up next. How many Jazz players can get healthy? – 11:14 PM

Utah with Gobert: 27-10, 106 points allowed per game
Utah without Gobert: 1-4, 119 points allowed per game – 11:13 PM

The Cavs start three 7-footers. The Utah Jazz are currently without Rudy Gobert, Hassan Whiteside, Udoka Azubuike, and Rudy Gay. And Norvel Pelle is questionable with a “non-COVID illness.” Should be, um, interesting tonight. – 5:05 PM
