ORLANDO, Fla. – The Donovan Mitchell to Rudy Gobert connection was intact once again after Mitchell threw a nice pass to Gobert who finished strong at the rim.

Mitchell was attacking the rim when he met Jerami Grant in the paint. He threw the ball to his left where he found Gobert who dunked over both Grant and Nikola Jokic.

It gave the Jazz a 109-102 lead with 6 minutes remaining in the game. Gobert picked up his 17th point of the game while Mitchell dished out his seventh assist.

Gobert recorded 24 points for the Jazz including 20 points in the first half in Game 3 on Friday when Utah won by 37 points. Along with 17 points, Gobert also had 10 rebounds and one assist on 7 of 8 shooting from the field and 3 of 4 from the free throw line.

Mitchell had a hot start to the contest with 13 points in the opening quarter. He added 9 points to his total in the second quarter to enter the halftime break with 22 points. The all-star notched 11 points in the third quarter and had 35 points midway through the four quarter.

The duo also connected on a alley-oop in the third quarter.
