ORLANDO, Fla. – Utah Jazz forward Joe Ingles found Donovan Mitchell on a back-door alley-oop early in Game 3 against the Denver Nuggets.

Ingles was dribbling the ball down the right side of the floor when Mitchell ran down the weak side where Ingles threw the lob to Mitchell, who finished with a two-handed dunk.

It gave the Jazz a 9-5 lead early in the first quarter. Ingles picked up his first assist of the game and Mitchell’s first field goal of the game and had four points after knocking down two free throws earlier.

On the next possession, Ingles found Gobert for a open slam dunk. Gobert scored his fourth point of the game and Ingles had his second assist of the contest.

The Utah Jazz received the services of Mike Conley back after missing the first two games of the series to be with his family for the birth of his son. Conley returned to the bubble on Monday and cleared the four-day quarantine. He started in place of rookie Juwan Morgan. The series is tied at one game apiece.
