The Utah Jazz played four games last week: @ Sacramento Kings (W), vs Sacramento Kings (W), vs. Memphis Grizzlies (L), and @ Portland Trail Blazers (W). Head coach Quin Snyder isn't playing every guy every night, so we're getting more opportunities to evaluate different player combinations, and more simply, which guys still want to go out there and play hard. Looking at the stats this week it's hard to discount the effort of some of our bench guys -- it's just a shame that there isn't enough minutes to give everyone a fair shake. Anyway . . . here's how they fared.
During this week we got a bunch of nice things, like Glen Rice at times (* former Jazz player Glen Rice), and getting some much deserved time off, and continuing to be Rudy Gobert.handling the ball more. looking like
played in one game, shot really well (for him), but failed to get any assists. (He's steal tops on the team in total assists, APG, and A/36, AST/100, AST%, and AST:TO ratio though . . . ). is showing aggression still, but is obviously a bench player. is shooting like crazy right now. (technically a contract year for him) is balling without an equal right now. is big, but not great.
and both need more playing time, and I think they are showing why. is a warm body, is a cold one, and is looking to set the world on fire next year.
Two more games this season to play, but before we get there -- who was the player of the week?
