SALT LAKE CITY – Jazz guard Royce O’Neale picked off a Minnesota pass before throwing a picture perfect lob to Rudy Gobert for a dunk late in the third quarter of Utah’s game against the Minnesota Timberwolves.

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

After Minnesota had cut the Jazz lead to a single point, O’Neale stole an outlet pass near mid-court, drove to the lane before throwing the all-oop to Gobert who finished with authority, giving the Jazz an 86-83 lead with 1:18 remaining in the third quarter.

After a slow start offensively, Gobert has a double-double with 10 points and 13 rebounds.

Gobert is averaging 15.6 points and a league leading 14.9 rebounds per game this season.

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