SALT LAKE CITY – Utah Jazz big man duo Rudy Gobert and Hassan Whiteside had a perfect first quarter against the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday night.

Rudy Gobert started the game against the Clippers for the Jazz and had eight points and three rebounds on 4-for-4 shooting from the field. Hassan Whiteside came in and played nearly six minutes and posted seven points and one rebound on 3-of-3 shooting from the floor.

The duo combined for 15 points on 7-for-7 shooting.

This comes after the two standout big men had great performances against the Washington Wizards on Saturday. The Wizards gave up an alley-oop to Rudy Gobert just five seconds into the game and never found a way to prevent the Jazz lob heavy attack over the next 48 minutes.

The Jazz set a franchise record with nine alley-oops, four of which went to Gobert, four to Whiteside, and one to Mitchell that resulted in an impressive windmill finish as the Wizards paid for sticking with an undersized lineup throughout the game.

The Jazz and Clippers can be seen on ESPN or AT&T SportsNet and heard on The Zone Sports Network.
