SALT LAKE CITY –Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert announced his presence with authority after returning from a five-game absence that saw the Jazz go 1-4 without him.

The Nuggets hosted the Jazz at Ball Arena in Denver on Sunday, January 16.

The Jazz were trailing 15-10 when Mike Conley used a quick crossover dribble, creating  space in the lane before lofting a perfectly thrown pass that Gobert finished strong.

The league leader in dunks with 128 coming into the night’s game, Gobert scored six points in the first quarter, adding three dunks to his season total.

In 37 games played this year, Gobert is averaging 15.5 points per game this year and leads the league in rebounding, pulling down 15.1 rebounds per game.

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