ORLANDO, Fla. – Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert threw down a nasty, powerful dunk over Brooklyn Nets center Jarrett Allen.

Royce O’Neale was at the foul line when he missed his second free throw when the Nets failed to collect the rebound. The ball bounced behind Allen towards Gobert when the Jazz big man grabbed the ball and threw down a two-handed dunk over Allen.

Gobert scored his 12th point of the game with that dunk. It gave the jazz a 49-35 lead with 5:14 remaining in the second quarter.

The Jazz took a 62-50 lead into the halftime break. Three Utah players scored in double figures led by Rudy Gobert and Mike Conley with 15 points apiece. Donovan Mitchell added 14. Joe Ingles and Jordan Clarkson each scored 6 points, O’Neale chipped in 4 points and Emmanuel Mudiay scored a bucket in the opening half of play.

Caris LeVert scored 14 points to lead the Nets in the first half. Allen contributed 10 points.

It’s the third and final scrimmage for the Jazz before they begin the NBA restart with “reseeding games.” The Jazz will begin the restart against the New Orleans Pelicans on Thursday, July 30 at 4:30 p.m. MT. The game will be televised on TNT and AT&T SportsNet.
