SALT LAKE CITY – The Utah Jazz built a big lead in the first half and started having some fun after halftime with multiple alley-oop plays.

The first lob was between big men in the third quarter.

Lauri Markkanen drove into the defense and threw the pass over the top to Walker Kessler.

Markkanen was on the other end of the next play.

Keyonte George found Jordan Clarkson on the wing who threw the ball up near the rim for a cutting Markkanen.

That wasn’t Clarkson’s only alley-oop assist of the night.

Earlier in the game, Clarkson found John Collins for a lob following a screen.
