One way or another, the 6-9 shot-blocker's matchup with 7-2 Jazz assignee Rudy Gobert was going to reveal a good deal about Varnado's NBA prospects. And with 12 points, 8 rebounds and 7 blocks, he passed the test with flying colors. That block total hardly does his defensive presence justice, as he altered a host of other shots and made things tough for Bakersfield down low all night. At this point it's clear that Varnado can play big against bigger competition.
