Get Lauri Markkanen in the Dunk Contest.
Alright, that may overstate it, but Markkanen brought a smile to Jazz fans’ faces when he threw it down over former Utah center and three-time Defensive Player of the Year Rudy Gobert.

Markkanen needs to work on the mean mug, but it was a quality dunk. Gobert realized what was happening and didn’t quite go for the full contest.
Gobert got him back not long after when Markkanen tried to go at him again.
Markkanen had a dozen in the first 24 minutes, but Minnesota was up nine at the half in this one.
