Can I use Azure DevOps as a separate server for git-lfs?

I have a repository on GitHub.com. I need to add a large file to it (>1GB). git-lfs seems to be the solution but GitHub probably offers only upto 2GB for free. Can I use Azure as a separate large file server while the actual codes stay in GitHub?

I tried configuring lfs Endpoint to the Azure repo and the git origin to GitHub.com. It does not seem to be working.

From the docs

Repositories should generally be no larger than 10GB. You can run git count-objects -vH in a command prompt, and look for the entry called "size-pack" to determine how large your repository is:

My Azure repo is empty. I haven't used it yet. In github there are only small files max 1gb
