SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Utah Jazz guard and NBA Sixth Man of the Year scored 10 points in the final three minutes of the third quarter of Game 4.

The scoring barrage by Jordan Clarkson started with 2:22 left in the third quarter with a floater in the lane to give the Jazz a 90-81 lead. After Dillon Brooks of the Memphis Grizzlies made two free throws, Clarkson hit another midrange jumper to keep the Jazz ahead by nine points.

Following a dunk by Jaren Jackson Jr., Clarkson hit a three-pointer with 48 seconds left in the third quarter and Utah held a 95-85 advantage.

Ja Morant knocked down a pair of free throws and Rudy Gobert got a dunk off of an assist by Mike Conley. With 1.7 seconds left, Clarkson nailed his second three-pointer of that span and the Jazz were up 100-87 entering the fourth quarter.

Through three quarters, Clarkson scored 21 points off the bench and had six rebounds.

This could be a game where the Jazz could take a commanding 3-1 lead in the series with a win in Game 4. Either way, Game 5 will be on Wednesday at Vivint Arena. Tip-off and broadcast information is to be determined.
