Positives

1) Favors Aggressiveness. He frustrated Cousins early and often. Defensively he was in position and helped anchor the paint. Offensively, he was active on the boards and it was apparent he was trying to score early.  He had some great shots in third quarter as well a 10 foot jumper and huge dunk on the PNR from Hayward.

2) Passing  The Utah Jazz had 19 assists on 24 made baskets in the first half. Extra passes, PNR, interior passing, hitting the curl. It's amazing what happens when teams hit 50% of their shots.

3) Shooting from three was unbelievable... no really shot chart below.
