SALT LAKE CITY – The Utah Jazz opened the fourth quarter on a run against the New Orleans Pelicans before Jordan Clarkson made a highlight block on Zion Williamson.

The Pelicans hosted the Jazz at Smoothie King Center on Sunday, October 23.

At the start of the final quarter of game time, Utah owned a 93-84 lead before going on a 9-1 run.

With 8:07 to go, Williamson attempted to slam the ball on a fast break. Clarkson chased down the Pelicans star and blocked the shot while Williamson fell hard to the court. Despite boos from the Smoothie King Center crowd, the Jazzman got all ball on the swat. Williamson appeared to be okay following the play.

Utah’s game against New Orleans is broadcast on AT&T SportsNet, NBA League Pass, and KSL Sports Zone.

Jazz vs. Pelicans

The Jazz take their blemish-free record to New Orleans to face the Pelicans on Sunday evening.

New Orleans burst out of the gate with an impressive win on the road over the Brooklyn Nets before downing the Charlotte Hornets on Friday night.

Jonas Valanciunas scored 30 points and grabbed 17 rebounds in the Pelicans second win of the season while Zion Williamson added 16 and five.

New Orleans is a dark horse to make a deep run in the Western Conference playoffs after pressing the Phoenix Suns in the opening round last year.

However, they are the third straight team the Jazz will face that is trying to integrate a major piece into the rotation after Williamson missed all of last season with a foot injury.
