SALT LAKE CITYJazz forward Jarred Vanderbilt threw down a slam dunk on an alley-oop from Malik Beasley during the second half of Utah’s game against the Philadelphia 76ers.

The Jazz hosted the Sixers at Vivint Arena on Saturday, January 14.

With 8:47 remaining in the third quarter, Beasley lobbed the ball toward the hoop and into the arms of Vanderbilt. The forward threw the ball through the cylinder for a two-handed jam.

Vanderbilt’s dunk cut Philadelphia’s lead to 73-64.

Midway through the quarter, Vanderbilt had six points on 3-8 field goals. He added eight rebounds, one assist, and a block during his first 18 minutes on the court.

This season, Vanderbilt is averaging 8.4 points per game on 57.0 percent shooting. The Kentucky product is also averaging 8.1 rebounds, 2.8 assists, 0.2 blocks, and 1.1 steals in 24.7 minutes per contest.

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

76ers vs. Jazz

After beating the Orlando Magic on Friday night, the Jazz have a quick turnaround as they prepare to face the 76ers on Saturday night, once again in Salt Lake City.

Philadelphia is in Utah on the first stop of a five-game road trip, looking to avenge an embarrassing loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder on Thursday night.

The Thunder beat the 76ers 133-114 thanks to 37 points from Shai Gilgeous-Alexander. Philly was led by Joel Embiid who scored 30 points on 10-17 shooting to go with 10 rebounds.

Embiid had a historic performance against the Jazz the last time these two teams faced off in Philadelphia.

The 76ers superstar scored a career-high 59 points, grabbed 11 rebounds, dished out eight assists, and blocked seven shots to become the first player in NBA history to record those stats in a single game.

Philadelphia outscored the Jazz by 25 in Embiid’s 37 minutes, and was outscored by 18 in the eight minutes he was on the bench.

Of Embiid’s 59 points, 20 came from the free-throw on an eye-popping 24 attempts.

Even with Thursday’s loss, the 7ers have been one of the league’s best teams over the last month and a half. Philadelphia is 13-4 in their last 17 games and owns the fifth seed in the Eastern Conference.
