SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Utah Jazz forward Bojan Bogdanovic threw a nice alley-oop pass to center Rudy Gobert, who finished with a one-handed dunk against the Lakers.

The dunk put the Jazz on an 11-0 run in which Bogdanovic and Gobert were both a big part of against the Lakers.

The alley-oop started when Lakers guard Dennis Schroder missed a three-pointer. Royce O’Neale collected the rebound and the Jazz ran on the fastbreak. O’Neale handed the ball off to Bojan Bogdanovic on the right side of the floor. Bogey went towards the free throw line when he saw Gobert slashing on the left side to the rim and threw up the lob. Gobert grabbed the ball with his right hand and threw it down, exciting the Jazz bench at Staples Center.

The play gave the Jazz a 69-50 with 7:05 left in the third quarter.

The Jazz big man did not play in Utah’s first matchup against the Lakers on Saturday afternoon. Gobert, as well as Mike Conley, Donovan Mitchell and Derrick Favors did not play in Saturday’s game.

Ersan Ilyasova and Donovan Mitchell were not available for the Jazz on Monday night for the rematch.

The Jazz will wrap up a three-game road trip against the Houston Rockets on Wednesday, April 21 at 6 p.m. MDT. Then they will have one quick game at home before going on the road for three straight.
