SALT LAKE CITY – Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert had a great first quarter for the Utah Jazz and kept the team in the game through the first quarter against the Trail Blazers.

In just seven minutes on the floor in the first quarter, Rudy Gobert had six points and five rebounds. Those three field goals came off of dunks.

One of his first dunks of the game came off a great pass down the middle of the paint to a wide open Gobert who went up for a reverse slam. Joe Ingles set Gobert up again with another pass in the paint to a running Gobert for the two-handed dunk.

His third and final dunk of the first quarter was on an inbound pass with 2.7 remaining on the clock. Ingles found Jordan Clarkson behind the arc and quickly threw the ball to Gobert, who finished with a dunk as time expired. The Trail Blazers had a 23-21 lead at the end of the opening period.

Midway through the second quarter, Gobert had 10 points with five dunks.

The Jazz and Trail Blazers game can be seen on AT&T SportsNet and heard on The Zone Sports Network.
