The young Jazz are making new identity and that new image is called “defense” as they demonstrate to Brooklyn Nets the importance of protecting the rim. They limit their opponents under 90 points since after the All Star break.
Gordon Hayward drops 24 points and grabbed 5 rebounds while former Nets Derrick Favors scored 22 points and grabbed 8 rebounds. Rudy Gobert added 11 rebounds and 2 block shots, Dante Exum also went hot from beyond the arc as he converted all of his four attempts.
Looking at the final stats, the Nets are having a better percentage in field goals made but suffer from the free throw line. The biggest turnover contributor for Brooklyn came from their guards, 5 for Jack and 3 for Williams.
