On Saturday, newly returned Rudy Gobert had a solid game with 16 points, seven rebounds and three blocks in 28 minutes, while his big-man cohort Derrick Favors was even better with 14 points, 12 rebounds, three assists and one steal in 32 minutes during a win over the LA Clippers.

There has been a recent run of Super Bowls featuring high-seeded teams, but it wasn’t that long ago when a lower-seeded surprise emerged seemingly every year.
