SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Jazzman Mike Conley and Rudy Gobert connected for an alley-oop slam dunk during the closing minutes of Utah’s win over the Indiana Pacers.

The Jazz hosted the Pacers at Vivint Arena on Friday, April 16.

With 3:17 left in the game, Conley lobbed a ball towards the hoop and Gobert caught the pass before throwing it through the cylinder for a powerful slam dunk.

The Jazz would go on to win the game, 119-111.

It was Utah’s largest comeback of the season.

At one point in the first half, Utah trailed Indiana by 17 points.

Over the final 24 minutes of action, the Jazz held the Pacers to 42 points.

Conley and Gobert were a big part of the comeback.
