DALLAS, Tex. – Utah Jazz forward Bojan Bogdanovic used a trick move on Dallas Mavericks forward Kristaps Porzingis in the first half of their Monday night clash.

Bogdanovic was in the corner as the 7-footer was defending him closely. The Croatian put the ball through Porzingis’ legs with his left hand, wrapped the ball around his left leg and grabbed the ball with the right hand before dribbling the ball back to the top of the three-point line. After that, he drew a double team when he found Rudy Gobert for a wide open dunk.

The Jazz were rolling in the first half against the Mavericks with a 71-50 halftime lead in Dallas.

Bogdanovic led the Jazz with 15 points in the opening half. He hit the game-winning three-pointer at the buzzer in Sunday night’s win over the Houston Rockets. Both Donovan Mitchell and Jordan Clarkson scored 14 points apiece. Rudy Gobert added a double-double with 11 points and 13 rebounds.

The Jazz were very effective shooting the basketball by making 25 of their 41 field goal attempts for 61 percent. They went 9-22 from the three-point line and 12-13 from the free throw line.

Dallas was without star guard Luka Doncic who was out with an ankle injury. The Jazz didn’t have Mike Conley due to rest on the second night of a back-to-back.

Tim Hardaway Jr. dropped 14 points in the first half with Porzingis chipping 11 points.
