NBA Preseason, Game 4:
Halftime Update: Utah Jazz 52 - Los Angeles Lakers 32
This game started off ugly, as both starting units had their struggles. What really turned the tide was the defensive intensity by the second unit collecting a lot of deflections, leading to fast break attempts. Kobe Bryant has 8 points (1-7 fg, 5-5 FT), 4 rebounds, and 2 assists for the Lakers. The Jazz are led by Derrick Favors and Alec Burks -- who both have 10 points off the bench. They are a combined 6-6 FG, 1-1 from three, and 7-11 FT. That's a robust, and frankly insane 6.67 PPS between the two.
League average is 1.21.
Hope the blowout continues in the second half!
