SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert threw down an alley-oop dunk from Golden State Warriors guard Steph Curry in the NBA All-Star game.

Moments later, Rudy Gobert threw down another dunk in the third quarter of the game for Team LeBron.

The first dunk came when Curry drove into traffic in the paint and threw a quick lob over Nikola Vucevic of the Orlando Magic for a slam dunk.

The second dunk was on a fastbreak when Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo set Gobert up for a two-handed flush near Brooklyn Nets guard James Harden.

That gave Gobert 10 points in the game along with three rebounds on a perfect 5-for-5 from the field. His first two points of the game came in the first quarter when Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James threw a hard bounce pass to the rim where Gobert caught it and threw it down.

Midway through the third quarter, Gobert’s Jazz teammates Donovan Mitchell and Mike Conley played 18 minutes combined. Mitchell had seven points, two rebounds and three assists. Conley was scoreless on three attempts all from beyond the arc.
