SALT LAKE CITY – Jazz center Rudy Gobert took over during the fourth quarter of Utah’s game against the Portland Trail Blazers.

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

With 8:27 remaining in the fourth quarter, Gobert spun on the defense of Larry Nance Jr. before laying the ball off the backboard and into the basket.

The center followed the beautiful move with a crushing dunk a minute later.

With 7:26 to go, Clarkson fed Gobert for a massive jam.

Utah owned a 107-87 lead when Portland called timeout at the 7:26 mark.

Gobert had 19 points on 8-10 field goals. He added 13 rebounds and two blocks during 27 minutes on the floor.

This season, Gobert is averaging 15.4 points, 14.9 rebounds, and 1.1 assists per contest.

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