Joe Ingles is a dominant small forward in the NBA

He’s the league leader in steals and jingles

NBA: Utah Jazz at Sacramento Kings Sergio Estrada-USA TODAY Sports

Despite the Utah Jazz starting with a disappointing 1-2 record, Joe Ingles’ season has been anything but disappointing.

Currently, Joe Ingles is putting up very impressive numbers!

Including the debauchery that was the game against the Memphis Grizzlies, Ingles is averaging 19.3 points, 4.3 rebounds, 5.0 assists and 2.7 steals per game. He’s doing this while shooting 57% from the field and 50% from three.

This is where we insert about thirty fire emojis.

It’s only three games, but looking at Ingles career progression, it’s reasonable to expect him to put up numbers close to what he’s doing, or at least a significant improvement, on last season. And that’s saying something considering how well he did replacing Gordon Hayward.

As Donovan Mitchell has received more defensive attention, it’s opened up opportunities for Ingles to get better looks and he’s taking full advantage.

If you noticed a change in the in-game experience during Jazz games (on top of a new Jazz Bear) “hype-man” Allen Handy left the Jazz because of how he felt the team handled letting Jon Absey go.

The reason for the Jazz Bear being let go has not been released, but it seems there is a lot to the story that doesn’t seem likely ever to come out.

The Utah Jazz released their giveaway schedule! There’s only 4 items this year but they look great.

Personally, I’d be most interested in the City Edition Hat and the Holiday Socks. If you haven’t decided on a game to go to, the giveaways might make it a bit easier to decide.

This year’s winner for best Halloween costume has already been decided. A special thank you to all other entries. This Ricky Rubio costume is fantastic!

Speaking of Ricky Rubio, the basketball mural done for his indoor court is incredible.
