SALT LAKE CITY – Jazz center Rudy Gobert threw down a mean slam dunk on an alley-oop pass from Mike Conley during Utah’s game against the Brooklyn Nets.

The Nets hosted the Jazz at Barclays Center on Monday, March 21.

With 8:41 remaining in the opening quarter, Conley ran a pick and roll with Gobert before dribbling into the paint. The guard floated a lob above a pair of Brooklyn defenders and Gobert threw the ball through the cylinder with a vicious move of his right arm.

Gobert’s dunk gave Utah an early 7-4 lead.

At the end of the opening quarter, the Jazz owned a 28-25 advantage.

Conley had five points and three assists. Gobert added two points on 1-1 field goals. He also had two rebounds in eight minutes of action.

This season, Conley is averaging 13.4 points, 3.1 rebounds, and 5.3 assists per contest.

Gobert is averaging 15.5 points on 71.1 percent shooting.

Jazz vs. Nets

After playing .500 basketball for the first two weeks of March, the Jazz have hit their stride with three consecutive wins over the last five days.

Beginning with Wednesday’s win over the Bulls, the Jazz have won three straight games by at least 15 points, and have an average margin of victory of 19.7 points per game.

The Jazz have done it with a shorthanded roster as Donovan Mitchell, Mike Conley, Bojan Bogdanovic, Hassan Whiteside, Danuel House Jr., and Trent Forrest have all missed games during the stretch.

However, newfound depth with Nickeil Alexander-Walker, Juancho Hernangomez, and Jared Butler have given the team a much-needed boost of energy in the victories.

Nets Have Won Five Of Six

Though much of the Nets season has been up and down due to the varying availability of Kyrie Irving, and the sudden, blockbuster trade that sent James Harden to the Philadelphia 76ers in exchange for Ben Simmons, they’ve found themselves on an upswing of late.

The Nets have won five of their last six games, including huge scoring outbursts from Irving and Kevin Durant who have combined for three 50+ point outings during the stretch.

However, Irving will remain unavailable to play at home when the Jazz face the Nets due to ongoing COVID protocols in New York City.

The Jazz crushed the Nets on February 4, in Utah 125-102, as Irving played, though Durant missed the game with a knee injury.

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