SALT LAKE CITY – Jazz guard Mike Conley tossed a nifty pass to Rudy Gobert for a big slam dunk during Utah’s game against the Milwaukee Bucks.

The Jazz hosted the Bucks at Vivint Arena on Monday, March 14.

With 5:34 left in the fourth quarter, Conley was getting swarmed by Milwaukee’s defense before dumping the ball off with a crafty over-the-shoulder pass to Gobert.

The Jazz center was wide-open in the paint and rose up for a massive jam to cut the Bucks’ lead to 107-102.

Late in the game, Conley had 24 points, two rebounds, seven assists, and two steals. Gobert added 15 points, 13 rebounds, and one steal.

This season, Conley is averaging 13.2 points, 3.1 rebounds, and 5.2 assists. Gobert is recording 15.4 points, 14.7 rebounds, and 1.1 assists per contest.

Milwaukee Bucks vs. Utah Jazz

Though the Jazz want to consider themselves championship contenders, they may not roll out a championship-worthy roster when they host Milwaukee.

Rudy Gobert was listed as questionable against the Bucks after missing Saturday’s win with an injured big toe on his left foot.

Bojan Bogdanovic meanwhile wasn’t listed on the team’s injury report Sunday but didn’t go through shootaround Monday morning due to a left calf strain. Bogdanovic played Saturday night after missing Friday’s game in San Antonio with a leg bruise.

Bucks Bringing Back Key Piece

While the Jazz were unsure of who would be available against Milwaukee, the Bucks welcomed back a key piece of their championship roster in Brook Lopez.

Lopez hadn’t played since opening night, underwent back surgery in early December, and has been rehabilitating the injury over the last three months.

Without Lopez, the Bucks defense had fallen outside of the top 10 in the NBA this season for the first time under coach Mike Budenholzer.

Former Jazzman George Hill is expected to return to the Bucks lineup after missing the last 16 games with neck soreness.

Despite the injuries, the Bucks own the second-best record in the East behind the Miami Heat.

Utah’s game against Milwaukee is broadcast on ESPN, AT&T SportsNet, and The Zone Sports Network.
