Jordan Clarkson Flies To Rim To Throw Down Two-Handed Jam
SALT LAKE CITY – Utah Jazz guard Jordan Clarkson flew down the lane to throw down a big two-handed jam in the third quarter of Game 3.
Jordan Clarkson got the ball on the left side, slashed to the basket and finished with the jam to get the crowd fired up at Vivint Arena.
That play cut the Mavericks lead to 95-88 with 41 seconds left in the third quarter. Clarkson had 14 points through three quarters.

The Jazz indicated that there would be adjustments to the team’s game plan after Wednesday’s practice in preparation for Game 3.
The Mavericks easily dissected the Jazz in their Game 2 series leveling victory, repeatedly attacking the rim, and kicking the ball out to open shooters on the perimeter.
“We watched the film today,” Jazz coach Snyder said Wednesday. “We had good work on the court [and] addressed a few adjustments that can help us.”
During the Jazz shootaround on Thursday, Donovan Mitchell indicated he knew what it would take for his team to overcome their Game 2 issues.
“I’m confident in my abilities on defense,” Mitchell said, “and so are my teammates. But I’m not too worried about it, just go out there and guard and do what I’ve got to do.”
The Mavericks haven’t won a game at Vivint Arena since April of 2016.
