SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – The Utah Jazz began the second half against the Minnesota Timberwolves playing the best basketball as a group as they have played in weeks. In addition to the hot shooting, the Jazz were moving the ball as well as they have all season. 

Jazz coach Quin Snyder likes to the Jazz rapid passing around the perimeter ‘the blender” and it was in full effect in Minnesota, as evidenced by this dunk from Gobert. 

Perhaps most impressive about the dunk from Gobert, he used his strength to body former top overall draft pick Karl-Anthony Towns under the hoop to throw the dunk down and draw the foul. 

The dunk put the Jazz up 75-67, and was the sixth made basket by the Jazz in first 4:01 of the second half. Every make came either beyond the three-point line or at the rim. 

The Jazz extended the lead to 97-83, and made 8-13 three-point attempts in the quarter. 

Gobert added two blocks in the quarter, after failing to record a block over the last three games.
