The Jazz rebounded from Tuesday’s loss with a complete domination of the Brooklyn Nets, winning 98-69 to go along with a 4-quarter sweep to gain a maximum 7-points in the Orlando Pro Summer League standings.
Raul Neto 7 Points & 3 Assists
Raul Neto’s first summer league action should be considered a success, as the 21-year old rookie displayed an impressive skillset and overall feel for the game. He showed good vision as well as an impressive handle which he used to probe and get in the paint as well as a crafty split of defenders in a backcourt trap that he concluded with an alley-oop. The highlight of the day was Neto’s cross-over and scoop shot over 6-11 center Keith Benson. Obviously there’s a big adjustment to playing point guard in summer league and in the regular season – but Wednesday was definitely a promising debut performance for Neto.
Jeremy Evans 15 Points & 9 Rebounds
Jeremy Evans showed off more of his complete game – starting off with a face-up baseline jumper to go along with his “routine” displays of ridiculous athleticism around the basket. His final basket of the day – a layup off a nice high screen-roll feed from Jerel McNeal in which Evans finished through contact – is the types of “basketball plays” he needs to make to earn a more consistent role for the Jazz.
Alec Burks 14 Points
Power-Outage: Electricity vs Natural Light
And with 0.6 seconds remaining,
Trey Burke somebody shut off the lights at the Magic’s practice facility.
The Jazz’s next game is Thursday versus the Indiana Pacers.
