SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Jordan Clarkson from the Utah Jazz threw down a monster one-handed slam against the Phoenix Suns in the second game of their two-game preseason series.

The jam came in the first quarter of the game, with 6:28 left in the opening period.

After taking a pass from Bojan Bogdonovic, Clarkson gave the Suns defense a slight hesitation move. His path to the hoop was wide open, and Clarkson took advantage, driving to a wide open basket and hammering the ball through the rim.

Clarkson’s dunk put the Jazz down just two, 9-7. After the end of the first quarter, Utah led Phoenix 19-15. Clarkson finished his first quarter stint with five points and three rebounds.

The Suns vs. Jazz game is broadcast on AT&T SportsNet on TV, and on 97.5/1280 the Zone on the radio.
