SALT LAKE CITY – New Utah Jazz men Keyonte George and John Collins connected on a pretty preseason alley-oop against the New Zealand Breakers.
With the Jazz leading 36-14 early in the second quarter, George came off a high screen and threw the lob to Collins who finished with the one-handed slam.
The dunk gave Collins his fourth point of the night as the Jazz easily pulled away from the Breakers.
