With 2:29 left to play in the first quarter, Indiana’s Jalen Smith attempted to pass the ball to one of his teammates after pulling down an offensive rebound. George picked off the pass like a defensive back in football before he turned into a baseball player and rocketed the ball ahead to Clarkson.

Clarkson collected the pass and went up for an easy dunk with no defenders near him. The jam gave Utah a 29-22 lead.

During the first 19 minutes of game time, Clarkson had seven points to lead Utah’s second unit. George added four points, three assists, and one steal.

This season, George is averaging 11.1 points, 3.0 rebounds, 4.5 assists, 0.1 blocks, and 0.5 steals per game.

Clarkson averages 17.9 points per contest on 41.7 percent shooting.

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