“Man, f— the talk,” Gobert said during his on-court interview with TNT after the Jazz’s series-tying 100-99 win in Saturday’s Game 4.
Gobert, who capped his 17-point, 15-rebound performance with the game-winning dunk off a lob from teammate Donovan Mitchell, told ESPN that he’s tired of hearing discussions about the Jazz’s chemistry and speculation about whether the team’s core could break up this offseason.
“I mean, there’s a lot of noise,” Gobert said. “A lot of people are talking about our team, our guys, the future, what can happen, what might not happen, about a lot of different things that at the end of the day for us right now don’t matter. We have a team, we’re 2-2 in the series, and that’s our focus.”
