SALT LAKE CITY – Jazz guard Ochai Agbaji rocked the rim with a big slam dunk on an alley-oop pass from Talen Horton-Tucker during Utah’s game against the New Orleans Pelicans.

THT feeds Agbaji for alley-oop dunk

The Jazz hosted the Pelicans at the Delta Center in Salt Lake City, Utah on Monday, November 27.

With 7:57 to go until halftime, Horton-Tucker lobbed a pass toward the basket before Agbaji jumped into the air to collect the ball. The Kansas product proceeded to throw down a monster jam while getting fouled by Herb Jones of the Pelicans. Agbaji completed the three-point play by sinking a foul shot to give the Jazz a 44-33 lead.

During his first seven minutes of action, Agbaji had six points on 2-4 shooting, including 1-3 on three-pointers.

This season, the second-year player is averaging 4.9 points per game on 42.9 percent shooting.

Utah’s game against New Orleans is broadcast on KJZZ, Jazz+KSL Sports Zone (97.5 FM), KSLSports.com, and the KSL Sports app.

Pelicans vs. Jazz

Markkanen Out As Jazz Host Pelicans

The Jazz will once again be without Lauri Markkanen when they host the Pelicans on Monday night.

Markkanen missed Saturday’s Jazz win over the same Pelicans team 105-100.

Jordan Clarkson returns to the lineup after missing Saturday’s game with an illness.

Jazz Look For Consecutive Wins Over The Pelicans

The Jazz will look to record their second two-game winning streak of the season when they host New Orleans after snapping a four-game losing skid over the weekend.

New Orleans led the Jazz by nine entering the final period but were outscored 37-23 during the fourth quarter.

Collin Sexton scored 16 points to lead the Jazz while Walker Kessler returned to the lineup after missing seven games with an elbow strain, recording an 11-point, 11-rebound double-double.

Markkanen will miss the game with what the Jazz are calling a left hamstring strain.

Williamson Back For Pelicans

Zion Williamson will return to the Pelicans roster after missing Saturday’s contest on the second night of a back-to-back.

Williamson is the Pelicans’ second-leading scorer behind Brandon Ingram at 23.2 points per game.

New Orleans is 8-5 with Williamson in the rotation and just 1-3 when he sits, including Saturday’s loss to the Jazz.

The Pelicans will be without CJ McCollum and Trey Murphy who are both recovering from long-term injuries.
