SALT LAKE CITY –  Jazz forward Rudy Gay showed off his athleticism with a put back dunk during Utah’s game against the Minnesota Timberwolves.

The Jazz hosted the Timberwolves at Vivint Arena on Friday, December 31.

Bojan Bodganovic drove to the bucket, missing a layup attempt between two Timberwolves; Gay flew in from the right side of the floor, collecting the rebound for an easy slam, giving the Jazz a nine point first half advantage, 52-43.

Gay finished the half with 12 points, two rebounds and one assist. He is also +16 in 13 minutes played.

Gay is averaging 8.9 points, 4.8 rebounds and one assist per game in his first season with the Jazz.

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