The Downbeat #2036: The Dante’s Dunk Edition

Your Thursday Downbeat!

Jazz won. I can’t believe this happened.

Seriously. Just seriously. It was a dunk so amazing I could feel it. We ❤️ Dante!

The Jazz were on a 3 game slump. I honestly thought they were going to go into the All-Star break on a 4 game skid because of how Lillard and McCollum usually play against us. Amar tweeted this:

I took the over. I was wrong.

CJ McCollum scored 18 points on 8-19 shooting.

Damian Lillard scored only 13 points on 3-19 shooting.

With how quick guards have treated us this year I was so scared for this Portland combo. I am glad the Jazz were able to contain them.

Gordon Hayward broke out of his mini-slump with this game. He scored a game high of 22 points on 8-18 shooting. With his 22 points he passed Deron Williams and is now 8th all time on the Jazz all-time scoring list.

Gordon scored 22 last night so he is now 8th with 7588 points. Remember this...

He’s come a long way since then.

So its now All-Star break. Gordon will be participating in the game on Sunday at the Skills Challenge on Saturday. Dante Exum and Trey Lyles will participate in the Rising Stars game.

What is your favorite part of All-Star Weekend? Do you even watch any of it anymore?

Just because. I mean this dunk!!!
