SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Jazz forward Royce O’Neale ripped the ball out of the hands of Clippers star and it led to a three-pointer by Utah during Game 5 against Los Angeles.

The Jazz hosted the Clippers at Vivint Arena for Game 5 of the Western Conference Semifinals on Wednesday, June 16.

2:10 into the opening quarter of action, George drove towards the hoop on a fast break.

However, the Jazz had multiple players back on defense and were in prime position to halt George in the paint.

O’Neale took the ball away from George on a strip/block and Utah moved to the opposite end of the court with the possession.

The Jazz forward found Bojan Bogdanovic in the near corner and the Croatian shooter knocked down a three-pointer.

Bogdanovic’s triple gave the Jazz an early 10-7 lead.

At the end of the quarter, Utah owned a 37-36 advantage.

Bogdanovic led the Jazz with 18 points on 6-7 shooting from beyond the arc.

O’Neale added eight points, four rebounds, two assists, and a block.

Utah’s game against Los Angeles is broadcast on TNT and 97.5 FM.
