With 10:32 remaining in the opening quarter, Miami’s Bam Adebayo was swatted by Hendricks. The Heat center collected an offensive rebound before attempting another shot. Adebayo’s second attempt on the play was rejected by a mean swat from Markkanen. John Collins picked up the ball for Utah and proceeded to dunk the ball at the other end of the court.

Collins’ jam gave Utah an early 4-0 lead.

Later, the Jazz owned a 26-24 lead with 2:43 left in the quarter. Hendricks had two points, one rebound, and a block in seven minutes. Markkanen had three points, one block, and a steal.

This season, Hendricks and Markkanen are both averaging 0.5 blocks per game.
