These are the first quarter possessions for the Golden State Warriors on offense while Rudy Gobert was on the floor. Gobert checks out with the Jazz leading the game 28-20 with 2:30 left in the 1st quarter.
The first quarter was the first time all year the Warriors didn’t make a three. The Warriors missed shots, Klay Thompson missed in transition from 3 and Curry missed an open offensive rebound kick out. However, the story of the first quarter was while Gobert was on the floor the Warriors only scored on 4 of 14 half court possessions. (counting the 2 sideline out of bounds)
The Warriors are the #1 offense off opponents made shots (1.1 pts per possession) and #2 offense off opponents misses (1.15 pts per possession). They scored 8 points in 14 possessions in the first quarter with Gobert on the floor for .57 pts per possession.
