SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Jazz forward Royce O’Neale blew a kiss towards the Los Angeles Clippers’ bench after burying a three-pointer during Game 6.

The Clippers hosted the Jazz at Staples Center for Game 6 of the Western Conference Semifinals on Friday, June 18.

With 3:14 remaining in the opening quarter of the game, Donovan Mitchell drove towards the hoop before kicking the ball out to O’Neale in the far corner.

The Jazz forward caught Mitchell’s pass and rose up before knocking down a three-point shot.

After the ball sailed through the cylinder, O’Neale turned towards Los Angeles’ bench and blew a kiss.

At the end of the first 12 minutes of game time, the Jazz led the Clippers, 33-31.

Utah shot 54.5 percent overall and 6-9 for 75.0 percent from beyond the arc.

O’Neale finished the quarter with six points on 2-4 field goals, including 2-2 from distance.

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