SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Utah Jazz guard Jordan Clarkson hit an improbable three-pointer to beat the 24-second shot clock during Game 3 against the Memphis Grizzlies.

Clarkson also had one assist, one steal, and one block in 18 minutes.

At the end of the third quarter, the Jazz led 96-85.

As the two teams went to the bench in preparation for the final quarter, the Utah was shooting 49.2 percent overall and 43.2 percent from three.

Memphis was shooting 45.9 percent overall and 37.9 percent on three-pointers.

Dillion Brooks led the Grizzlies with 19 points.
