It started as many modern day mysteries do these days: Twitter.

During Monday’s preseason opener against the Sydney Kings, a fan came forward with a story pitch.

Did Thabo Sefolosha save someone’s life?

“Who told you about the lady?” Sefolosha said when asked that question after Friday morning shootaround. “Wow, that’s random.”

But what the Jazz forward may view as a small encounter last month on the Provo River was a life-saving moment — and Lori Clark wants him, and fans of the Jazz, to know how much it meant to her.

“He didn’t realize I was really in dire straits,” she said in an interview with the Tribune. “He really did save my life that day.”

The 33-year-old Sefolosha has made it a point to go outdoors with his wife, Bertille, and two daughters, Lesedi and Naledi, to adapt to their new home. The day after they flew in from Europe, they decided to go rafting on a warm Sunday.
