Dante Exum highlights against the New Orleans Pelicans

Could the Kangaroo Kid be turning the corner?

Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports

Last night the Utah Jazz lost to the New Orleans Pelicans after being up going into the fourth quarter on the road. The Jazz gave up 41 points in the final frame and lost by 8. It was just one of those nights. One thing it wasn't was "just another one of those nights" for the point guards. Trey Burke started the game off on fire, but it was rookie Dante Exum 's ease of play that really opened some eyes.

Dante finished with 12 points, 2 rebounds, 2 assists, 1 steal, 1 block, and played in 21 minutes. His defense and hustle were surpassed only by his length and athleticism. We're going to see a few more games like this one before 2015 starts. And for Utah Jazz fans, that's going to be just was we wanted from Santa Claus. Also, just play Dante more! He's already behind schedule!

Bonus Points to anyone who actually knows about Billy Cunningham, the original "Kangaroo Kid".
