The run started with Utah holding a 47-43 lead with 4:10 remaining after a great play made by Donovan Mitchell. He ran into the paint on an impressive spin move and when he met a Nets defender, he dished the ball to Rudy Gobert, who finished the layup after getting fouled. Gobert converted the three-point play.
