Jazz Rookie G Trent Forrest Blocks Shot Off Backboard In Fourth Quarter
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Utah Jazz rookie guard Trent Forrest made an impressive block in the fourth quarter against the Denver Nuggets on Friday night.
Early in the fourth quarter, Nuggets guard Facundo Campazzo went in for a layup when Trent Forrest came in and blocked the shot off the backboard. That kept the score at 103-101 in favor of the Jazz with 9:05 remaining in the game.
Georges Niang secured the rebound for the Jazz, which led to a three-pointer by Bojan Bogdanovic.
With Mike Conley and Donovan Mitchell being out of action due to injury, Forrest has been asked to step up as the backup point guard and has answered the bell. Midway through the fourth quarter, Forrest had 6 points, 3 rebounds, 3 assists and one block on 3-for-6 shooting from the field and 0-of-3 from beyond the arc in 16 minutes.
Forrest went undrafted out of Florida State and signed with the Jazz this past offseason.
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.
