CHICAGO, Ill. – Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert was making a case for All-Star MVP after a fantastic third quarter performance.
He ended the quarter with a dunk that was set up by Atlanta Hawks guard Trae Young. That tied the quarter score under the new All-Star format.
Team Giannis was trailing by two points in the final seconds. The team that scored the most points in each of the first three quarters will have $100,000 donated to their charity.
Entering the third quarter, both teams had won one quarter.
