The Wasatch Front of Rudy Gobert and Derrick Favors has become a defensive force in Utah. However, when you dig inside the numbers it shows the Jazz offensively and defensively are better when Rudy Gobert is playing with a stretch 4.

David Locke, the radio voice of the Utah Jazz and Jazz NBA Insider, digs deeps inside the data to see what can be learned about the Jazz playing with 2 bigs compared to playing with a stretch 4.

Moreover, Locke takes Joe Johnson’s minutes out of the Jazz combinations and the results are eye-opening. When Derrick Favors is at the center and with a stretch the offense is great, when Rudy Gobert is at center with a stretch the offense is really good and the defense is actually better than with the Wasatch Front. What does this all mean and how does it impact the Jazz going forward.

Most of all it shows some very exciting possibilities for the Utah Jazz and show why the Jazz were the 3rd best team in the NBA.

David Locke enters his ninth year as the radio play-by-play voice of the Utah Jazz, having spent the majority of his career in radio in Salt Lake City and Seattle. In the summer of 2016, Locke created the Locked on Podcast Network which has podcast daily bite sized podcasts for every NBA and NFL team.
