SALT LAKE CITY – It may not count on the scoreboard but Rudy Gobert closed out the first half in spectacular fashion with a baseball throw-style heave from the opposite free throw that banked in.

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

With the clock ticking down, Nuggets rookie Bones Hyland missed a free throw line jumper. Gobert grabbed the rebound and after one dribble, launched the ball with his right hand about 80-feet.

As the late Hot Rod Hundley used to say, “With a gentle push and a mild arc, the cowhide globe hits home.”

The Jazz closed the half on a 13-5 run to take a 68-58 halftime lead.

Donovan Mitchell leads the Jazz with 15 points. Also in double figures, Bojan bogdanovic has 13 and Gobert finished the half with 11 points and nine rebounds. Jordan Clarkson came off the bench to add 12 points of his own.

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