Golden State Warriors forward Jonas Jerebko did not only save the Dubs against the Utah Jazz last Friday, but he also made a bettor $1,200 richer.
Jonas Jerebko banked the game-winning tip-in to give the Warriors a 124-123 win against the Jazz. And according to William Hill US, the overall score of the game and the Warriors' victory — thanks to the 31-year-old forward– turned a bettor's $2 turn into $1,237.7.
The game was already over 217.5 points, and Jerebko's heroics ensured that the gambler's 10-leg parlay would wound up winning.

The 31-year-old Jerebko, for his part, has been waiting for this opportunity since he was waived by the Jazz months before the start of the regular season. After his game-winning tip, Jerebko shared that he felt that his new teammates wanted him to claim this moment.
“I could feel that my teammates wanted me to have that moment,” Jerebko said, per Connor Letourneau of the San Francisco Chronicle. “I told them before the game, ‘I really want to win this game. I spent all season with these guys last year, and I really want to come into Utah and beat their a—.’ … To end it like that and have my teammates support me like they did, it was special.”
It was definitely a welcome sign for the Warriors. It seems that they landed another steal off the free-agent market. For Jerebko, after the spending a relatively mediocre season with the Jazz, he has finally found a new home.
