SALT LAKE CITY – Jazz guard Mike Conley tricked the defense with a ball bake before sinking a layup during Utah’s game against the Portland Trail Blazers.

The Blazers hosted the Jazz At Moda Center on Wednesday, December 29.

With 2:17 left in the opening quarter, Conley drove the paint before showing the ball to the defense. The ball fake caused a Portland defender to fly into the air and out of bounds. The play created a wide-open layup for Conley.

The point guard’s basket gave the Jazz a 27-20 lead.

After the first 12 minutes of game time, Utah owned a 36-27 advantage.

Conley had four points on 1-2 shooting. He added one assist during his first eight minutes on the hardwood.

This season, the Ohio State product is averaging 14.1 points, 2.7 rebounds, and 5.3 assists per game.

Utah’s game against Portland is broadcast on AT&T SportsNet, NBA League Pass, and The Zone Sports Network.
