Joe Ingles has been incredible for the Utah Jazz hitting threes at an incredible percentage and playing solid defense against opposing small forwards.
The Utah Jazz defense has been incredible to start the year. Against the Oklahoma City Thunder they held Russell Westbrook to six points in the victory. The Jazz defense swarmed the Thunder and they were visibly frustrated getting three technical fouls in the game. The Jazz will earn the NBA a lot of technical money this season.
Derrick Favors has been guarding the perimeter very nicely and did a good job on Carmelo Anthony tonight. It can’t be stated enough how nice it is to have a healthy Derrick Favors.
Rudy Gobert returned to his dominant self putting in 16 points and 13 rebounds.
Epic Epke Udoh did it again, playing incredible defense behind Rudy Gobert and ending the game a plus/minus of +11. The Jazz are going to win a lot of games this year because of their second unit defense.
