SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Jazz center Rudy Gobert rocked the rim with a ferocious slam dunk over two-time MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo during the opening minutes of Utah’s game against the Milwaukee Bucks.

The Jazz hosted the Bucks at Vivint Arena on Friday, February 12.

With 8:39 remaining in the first quarter, Joe Ingles dished the ball off to a rolling Gobert. The 2019 NBA All-Star flew towards the hoop and crushed the iron with an impressive jam.

Gobert’s dunk was his first bucket of the game and gave Utah an 11-7 lead.

Enter the game, the 2021 All-Star hopeful is averaging 13.4 points, 13.5 rebounds, 1.4 assists, and a career-high 2.7 blocks per contest.

Fan voting for the 2021 NBA All-Star game ends on February 16.

Gobert and the Jazz currently own an NBA-best 20-5 record.

Utah’s game against Milwaukee is broadcast on AT&T SportsNet and 97.5 FM.
