The Jazz center rose up and crushed the iron with a thunderous slam dunk.

Memphis’ Desmond Bane missed the technical foul shot.
The dunk stretched Utah’s lead to 114-89.
After the play, Gobert had 16 points on 6-9 field goals. He was 4-7 at the free throw line.
The center also added 14 rebounds, one assist, and two blocks during 27 minutes on the hardwood.
So this Memphis small lineup is struggling with the 7'1 guy on the Jazz.
