SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert put Memphis Grizzlies big man Jaren Jackson Jr. on a poster in the fourth quarter of Game 2.

Rudy Gobert had his dunk come off of a nice pass from Mike Conley in the pick-and-roll and he threw down the two-handed dunk over Jaren Jackson Jr. That play erupted the crowd at Vivint Arena and gave the Jazz a 107-97 lead with 11:42 left in the fourth quarter.

The first four points scored by the Jazz in the fourth quarter came off of dunks by Gobert from Conley assists.

After dunking on Jaren Jackson Jr., the young Grizzlies big man tried shooting a hook shot in the post when Gobert blocked it away. Early in the fourth quarter, Gobert was up to 15 points, 11 rebounds and 3 blocks.

Utah started the fourth on a 7-0 run following a disappointing third quarter as Memphis outscored them 43-29 after the Jazz held a 22-point lead in the first half.
