SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert threw down a big dunk over Oklahoma City Thunder center Mike Muscala.

Joe Ingles went around a Gobert screen, as the big man rolled to the hoop, Ingles dished him the ball and the Jazz center finished with a dunk over Muscala. Gobert was up to 6 points after that dunk and gave the Jazz a 29-26 lead with under 10 minutes remaining in the first half.

The Frenchman also had 3 rebounds, one steal a block, shooting 3-for-4 from the field.

The Thunder jumped out to a 14-4 lead in the first quarter, with the similar feel to their home opening loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves on Saturday. Utah answered with a 18-10 run to the end the first quarter, trailing 24-22.

Gobert has played well to start the season. In the season opener against Portland, Gobert recorded 20 points and 17 rebounds. In Saturday’s loss to the Timberwolves, he posted 18 points and 17 boards.
