SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Bojan Bogdanovic is drawing double teams with his impressive play lately and he capitalized by finding Rudy Gobert for a open dunk.
The play with Bogdanovic and Gobert took place early in the third quarter in the Jazz Monday night clash with the Golden State Warriors at Chase Center.
Bogdanovic took the ball to the free throw line when two Warriors defenders tried to take the ball from him. Bogey stayed poised and put the ball over their heads to Gobert’s hands for an easy wide open dunk.
That play trimmed the Warriors lead to 57-55 with 9:33 left in the third quarter. In the first half, Bogdanovic led the way with 15 points on 5-of-12 shooting from the field and 3-for-6 from the three-point line. Gobert finished the half with 3 points and 6 rebounds.
The Warriors are trying to get out of the play-in tournament, while the Jazz are attempting to lock in the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference. Utah is still without Mike Conley and Donovan Mitchell due to injuries.
The Jazz are on the road for a quick trip to the bay area before returning to Vivint Arena for their final home game of the regular season. They will face the Portland Trail Blazers on Wednesday, May 12 at 7:30 p.m. MDT on ESPN and AT&T SportsNet.
