SALT LAKE CITYJazz center Walker Kessler completed a three-point play by hitting a foul shot after his banked in a bucket off the glass during Utah’s game against the Golden State Warriors.

Bank is open for Walker Kessler

The Jazz hosted the Warriors at the Delta Center in Salt Lake City, Utah on Monday, February 12.

With 9:06 remaining in the fourth quarter, the second-year center collected a bad pass before working for the look at the hoop. Kessler was fouled by Golden State’s Dario Šarić as he let go of a six-foot shot attempt. The ball bounced off the glass before falling through the iron.

After the bank, Kessler completed a three-point play at the charity stripe.

The bucket and foul shot cut Golden State’s lead to 98-86.

During his first 26 minutes on the court, Kessler had 11 points on 5-7 field goals. The Auburn product also had nine rebounds, one assists, two steals, and four blocks.

This season, the center is averaging 8.4 points, 7.5 rebounds, 0.8 assists, 2.8 blocks, and 0.5 steals in 23.2 minutes per game.

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

Warriors vs. Jazz

The Utah Jazz will host the Golden State Warriors in a game that could have Play-In Tournament implications.

The Jazz currently own the 11th seed in the West with a 26-27 record.

The Warriors sit one spot ahead of the Jazz in the 10th seed with a record of 25-25.

Jazz Turn New Page In Season

The Jazz will have a different look over the final 29 games of the season after trading Kelly Olynyk, Simone Fontecchio, and Ochai Agbaji at last week’s trade deadline.

Rookie Taylor Hendricks recorded 18 minutes in the absence of the veterans recording three points, eight rebounds, and a block as the Jazz fell to the Phoenix Suns.

First-round pick Brice Sensabaugh has also been called up from the G League but was unavailable against Phoenix with a left hip injury.

Sensabaugh’s status has been upgraded to available ahead of Monday’s matchup with the Warriors.

Warriors Look To Gain Ground On Jazz

The Warriors will look to extend their half-game advantage in the standings over the Jazz when they travel to Salt Lake City.

After dropping to 19-24, their worst record of the season, Golden State has won six of their last seven games including four in a row.

Their success coincides with the improved play of forward Jonathan Kuminga.

The 21-year-old was moved into the starting lineup on January 27 and has averaged 22.3 points, 6.1 rebounds, and 3.1 assists while shooting 55 percent from the floor over his last eight games.
