SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Jazz center Rudy Gobert threw down a one-handed slam dunk on a putback during Utah’s game against the Washington Wizards.

The Wizards hosted the Jazz at CapitalOne Arena on Thursday, March 18.

With 9:02 left in the second quarter, Jordan Clarkson floated a shot towards the hoop.

The ball bounced off the back of the iron and up into the air when Gobert caught it with one hand and threw it through the cylinder.

Gobert’s dunk cut Washington’s lead to 38-27.

The field goal was Gobert’s second of the contest and gave him four points on 2-3 shooting.

Gobert added three rebounds and a block during his first 10 minutes on the court.

The Jazz trailed Wizards due to poor defense and lack of shooting.

At the time of Gobert’s jam, the Jazz were shooting 36.0 percent overall and less than 27 percent on three-pointers.

Utah’s game against Washington is broadcast on NBA TV, AT&T SportsNet, and 97.5 FM.
