SALT LAKE CITY – Utah Jazz all-star Rudy Gobert blocked a layup attempt by former Weber State star Damian Lillard on Monday night.

In the fourth quarter, Portland Trail Blazers all-star guard Damian Lillard was attacking the rim when he attempted a layup. He thought he passed Rudy Gobert in the paint when the three-time NBA Defensive Player of the Year blocked the layup off the backboard.

That kept the Jazz lead to 110-94 with 5:55 remaining in the game.

Surprisingly enough, that was Gobert’s first block of the game. He was up to 21 points and 16 rebounds with under three minutes to play in the game. Lillard had just 11 points on 4-of-12 shooting from the field to go with six rebounds and five assists.

The Jazz will have a few days off before hosting the Boston Celtics on Friday, December 3 at 7 p.m. MT on AT&T SportsNet and The Zone Sports Network.
