SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert brought the power when he threw down a dunk over two defenders from the Denver Nuggets.

Rudy Gobert dunked on the two players from the Nuggets at Vivint Arena on Friday, May 7.

The first play of the second quarter, Joe Ingles went around a Gobert screen when the big man cut to the rim. When Ingles threw the ball to Gobert in the paint, he faked out one defender, spun in the lane and threw down a one-handed dunk over both JaVale McGee and Michael Porter Jr. to give the Jazz a 42-41 lead with 11:44 left in the second quarter.

Midway through the second quarter, Gobert was up to six points, one rebound and one assist on 3-for-3 shooting from the field. Donovan Mitchell and Mike Conley were out once again with injuries.

The Jazz are on their fourth of a five-game home stand. They will wrap up the home stand on Saturday, May 8 against the Houston Rockets at 8 p.m. MDT on AT&T SportsNet.
