SALT LAKE CITY – Jazz forward Juancho Hernangomez threw down a vicious slam dunk during Utah’s game against the Los Angeles Clippers.

The Clippers hosted the Jazz at Crypto.com Arena on Tuesday, March 29.

With 5:05 remaining in the third quarter, Jazz center Greg Monroe fed the ball to a cutting Hernangomez.

The Jazz forward drove the hoop before throwing down a powerful one-handed slam dunk.

Hernangomez’s dunk gave Utah an 82-60 lead.

After the jam, Hernangomez had 13 points on 5-6 shooting, including 3-4 from beyond the arc. He added five rebounds and a block during his first 21 minutes of action.

This season, Hernangomez is averaging 2.2 points, 2.2 rebounds, and 0.4 assists per game.

Jazz vs. Clippers

While Gobert is returning, the Jazz will still be without Danuel House Jr. and Bojan Bogdanovic against the Clippers who are missing their seventh and eighth games respectively.

The Jazz listed all three players as questionable when they released the injury report on Monday, but downgraded Bogdanovic and House Jr. shortly before tip-off.

Without House Jr. and Bogdanovic in the lineup, the Jazz are just 3-4 in their last seven but have lost four consecutive games.

The Jazz will also be without Hassan Whiteside who is missing his third consecutive game with a sprained foot.

“It’d be nice for us to get Bojan and Hassan [back],” Jazz coach Quin Snyder said of the Jazz’s long injury list. “Hassan has been a big part of what we’ve done, and House — he’s one of our two top perimeter defenders and has been elite at times.”

The matchup with the Clippers is the final stop on a six-game road trip that began with a win over the New York Knicks but quickly unraveled with losses in Brooklyn, Boston, Charlotte, and Dallas.

Veteran Greg Monroe signed a 10-day contract with the Jazz on Monday to help bridge the gap at center until Whiteside returns.

The Clippers will also take a step towards fulls strength as All-Star forward Paul George is set to return to the starting lineup.

George has missed the last 43 games with an elbow injury as the Clippers have slipped to the eighth seed in the West and will have to win a play-in game to qualify for the postseason.

The Clippers owned the fifth-best record in the West prior to George’s injury, but have steadily watched themselves fall in the standings in his absence.

LA has lost five consecutive games and eight of their last 10 outings.

Utah’s game against Los Angeles is broadcast on TNT and The Zone Sports Network.
