SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Utah Jazz big man Rudy Gobert blocked the Clippers’ potential game-tying three-pointer to seal the Game 1 win.

Rudy Gobert and the Jazz knocked off the Los Angeles Clippers 112-109 to steal Game 1 and a 1-0 series lead in the Western Conference Semifinals.

Paul George hit a three-pointer to put the Clippers within three points with 38 seconds left. Donovan Mitchell missed a fadeaway deep two and LA got the rebound. Kawhi Leonard had the ball on the angle before Joe Ingles closed out on him. Leonard passed the ball over to Marcus Morris in the corner when Rudy Gobert closed out on him. Morris tried taking a step to his right and fire the shot at the buzzer but Gobert blocked it away.

Gobert finished the game with 10 points, 12 rebounds and 3 blocks on 2-of-6 shooting from the field in 33 minutes on the floor.

Game 2 between the Jazz and Clippers will be on Thursday, June 10 at 8 p.m. MT on ESPN.
