The seemingly snakebit Utah Jazz stole Game 1 of their first round NBA Playoff series with the Clippers tonight with a tough 97-95 win in Los Angeles. The victory was rather incredible because, 17 seconds into the game, one of the Jazz’s most important (if not the most important) players, Rudy Gobert, went down with a sprained knee.  While his status for the remainder of the series is unclear, Gobert missed the remainder of Game 1, and the Jazz were able to pull off a win without him.  While having to win the series without Gobert would still be a daunting task, the Jazz are not “done” yet.  Let’s take a look at some tweets from right after Gobert’s injury.
