SALT LAKE CITYJazz forward Lauri Markkanen pulled down an offensive rebound before finishing through contact for a three-point play during Utah’s game against the Memphis Grizzlies.

The Jazz hosted the Grizzlies at Vivint Arena on Saturday, October 29.

With 6:50 remaining in the opening quarter, Markkanen corralled an offensive board after a missed shot by Jordan Clarkson. After collecting the roundball, the forward jumped into the air for a shot. He finished the jumper despite getting fouled by John Konchar. The penalty sent Markkanen to the free throw line for a single shot.

Markkanen sunk the foul shot and gave Utah a 17-9 lead.

At the end of the first quarter, the Jazz trailed, 30-24.

In his first nine minutes of action, the Finnish forward had five points on 2-4 field goals. He added three rebounds and an assists during his first quarter minutes.

This season, Markkanen is averaging 21.2 points per game on 49.0 percent shooting.

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