Rudy Gobert made history against the Suns on Monday.

The Jazz center recorded his 270th dunk of 2018-19 in the second quarter of Utah’s matchup against Phoenix, giving him the NBA record for the most in a single season.

Gobert broke Wizards center Dwight Howard’s record of 269 dunks set in 2007-08.

Milwaukee star Giannis Antetokounmpo has the second-most dunks in the league this season with a mark of 262. Houston’s Clint Capela ranks third with 205.

Utah entered Monday with 43-30 record. It sits in seventh in the Western Conference standings, just 1/2 game above the Spurs.
