SALT LAKE CITY – Utah Jazz fans have long wanted to see Rudy Gobert develop a jump shot, and early this season, he’s giving them what they want.

Against the Kings, Gobert hit another mid-range jumper showing the continued improvement of his offensive game.

With the shot clock running out on a broken play, Gobert got the ball off a pass from Rudy Gay and comfortably knocked down a fallaway 12-footer.

According to NBA.com, Gobert is just 2-8 this season on shots outside of five feet, but is now 2-3 in shots between 8-16 feet.

While Gobert’s jumper against the Kings was nice, it’s no match for the move he made against the Orlando Magic earlier this year.

In Orlando, Gobert flashed his crossover and stepped into a jump shot over Wendell Carter.

At the half, Gobert had nine points and nine rebounds as the Jazz led the Kings 54-49.
