Rudy Gobert Block Leads To Joe Ingles Triple In Impressive Sequence For Jazz
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert made an impressive block that led to a three-pointer by Joe Ingles in the second quarter against the Cavs.
Cleveland Cavaliers guard Darius Garland tried to get a layup to go but Rudy Gobert didn’t give him a chance with a viscous block. Mike Conley collected the rebound and gave a little hand off pass to Joe Ingles for a three-pointer.
That sequence put the Jazz up 38-20 with 8:39 left in the second quarter.
