SALT LAKE CITY – It’s safe to say Jordan Clarkson is an official Utahn after taking a nasty fall in the winter snow.

The Utah Jazz guard shared a series of photos on Instagram Thursday, and a video of him falling after slipping on the snow in his driveway.

In the video, Clarkson is seen in shorts and a long sleeve orange and white shirt attempting to walk in the snow in sandals. The guard’s left foot slipped and the rest of his body followed as he crashed to the ground.

Clarkson then gets up from his fall in the snow and nearly tumbles again before finding his balance as he slides smoothly into the street.

Luckily, it appears Clarkson held onto his phone in the accident and wasn’t seriously injured.

The guard also shared photos of himself with his family, out to dinner, and in uniform with the Jazz in the post.

Jazz Teammates Respond To Clarkson Falling In Snow

The Jazz didn’t have practice on Thursday, and it didn’t take them long to find the video of Clarkson falling in the snow.

Mike Conley posted a simple “thank you” in the responses to Clarkson’s post.

Meanwhile, rookie Walker Kessler wrote, “Needed this today” with a laughing emoji.

Former Jazzman Hassan Whiteside also responded with multiple laughing emojis of his own.

In the post, Clarkson added the caption “4:44”  a nod to Jay Z’s 2017 album. However, the Jazz guard used Smash Mouth’s “All-Star” over the video of himself falling in the snow mimicking a popular TikTok trend of people falling.

Clarkson is in the midst of a career year with the Jazz.

The former sixth man has been a full-time starter in Utah this season and is averaging 20.9 points and 4.3 assists, the best numbers of his career.
