NEW ORLEANS, La. – Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert received a beautiful pass from Joe Ingles that led to the big man going past two New Orleans’ defenders and finished with a right-handed slam dunk.

With 8:32 remaining in the game, Ingles received a screen from Gobert. When Ingles went around the screen and had two defenders on him, he threw a bounce pass past the two defenders to Gobert, who finished with the dunk, driving past center Jaxson Hayes and guard E’Tuwan Moore. It gave the Jazz a two-point lead.

It was only the sixth point of the game for Gobert, who was struggling offensively, shooting 3-8 from the field. At the time of the dunk, he had 19 rebounds. Ingles dished out his fourth assist of the evening.

The Jazz finished a three-game road trip and was red-hot entering the game, winning five straight.
