SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert threw down a powerful one-handed slam dunk over Golden State Warriors big man Kevon Looney.

The dunk came early in the third quarter as Mike Conley was slashing into the lane when Rudy Gobert popped up in the paint. Conley threw the pass through two defenders to Gobert, who dunked with his right hand over Kevon Looney.

The play trimmed the Warriors’ lead to 77-69 with 8:06 left in the third quarter.

Midway through the third quarter, Gobert was having a big game for the Jazz. He was up to 15 points, 20 rebounds and three blocks in 21 minutes on the floor. He was shooting 5-of-6 from the field and 5-for-9 from the free throw line.

The Jazz have fought their way back into the game after the Warriors led by as much as 13 early in the first quarter after Stephen Curry dropped 14 points, knocking down three triples.

Their game in San Francisco starts a five-game road trip. The Jazz will head to the east coast for three straight before ending the trip in Chicago.
