NBA Twitter goes wild as Marcus Smart posterised Rudy Gobert, as the Boston Celtics make their way to Utah to face the Jazz
The Utah Jazz enjoyed a long rest since their last game vs the Portland Trail Blazers. They were on a run with two big blowout wins. First, when they hosted the Pelicans and then the Blazers, both the games they won by 22 points.
Tonight, they hosted the Boston Celtics. The Celtics weren’t quite as dominant as the Jazz were in their last contest, winning it 88-87 over a shorthanded Philadelphia 76ers team.
This game again looked like it’ll be high scoring game since the start. As the intensity with which both teams were playing was going off the roof. Marcus Smart gave the Celtics some vigor with a dunk over Rudy Gobert.
Marcus Smart posterized Rudy Gobert and NBA Twitter goes wild!
With Jaylen Brown out of the starting lineup again, the C’s starters had a little more to do again. They certainly need something to get going which they got when their 6’3 point guard Marcus Smart posterized the 7’1, 3-time Defensive Player of the Year.

Come on guys! One will get dunked on if he lives under the rim.

The Celtics lost this high-scoring game 137-130, they were in the contest from start to end and will look to carry this free-flowing offense forward. They’d surely look to do better defensively.
