    Utah lost by 3, but Naz & Georges were both +12. Second team got torched.

    Naz, playing PG in Grayson Allen's absence, finishes the 1st half with a bucket:

    The Jazz have a lot of new fans in central Iowa, including me.

    I would have to assume the odds of Naz and Georges both making the Jazz roster is pretty small, but if they do it sure will make it easy to cheer for the Jazz. Full disclosure last time I knew players on the Jazz was the Malone/Stockton yrs.

    Both being on Two-way contracts allow for the Jazz to "stash" both in the G-League even if they are better than the 14-15 players on the NBA roster and keep their rights so I expect both to be there even if they shine in summer league.

    The Jazz just signed Neto and Exum to contracts, drafted Grayson Allen to back up Mitchell and Ricky Rubio. I don't have much hope for Naz to make their roster with those current numbers though if he continues to play well Rubio and Neto are on the last year of their deals so he could factor next year.

    Niang has a better chance, the Jazz are looking for a SF-PF backup and were linked to Bejica and Parker as an obvious fits. Bejica just signed with the Sixers this morning so depending if they add someone else they could consider just moving Niang up. He has been producing and the coaches seem to like him.

    Watch Nikola Jokic play for them. The guy is a wizard, perhaps the best passing center (and he is a center) I've ever seen.

    My bet is on them keeping Georges in a two-way, and letting Naz go (which some other team will then pick him up for D-League or two-way contract).

    Don't forget, Georges is technically a restricted free agent, so another team could tender him an offer and the jazz would then have to decide whether or not to match it. It wouldn't surprise me if that happens and the jazz let him go.

    Thankfully the Nuggs didn’t trade Jokic to the Jazz like they did the rights to Mitchell and Gobert :)

    Okay, I don't watch the NBA, but that video of Jokic makes me want to watch that guy. That's pure instinct. Career 15 pts, 9 Rbs, 4.4 ast? Only 23 years old? Sold!

    I guess I was thinking of watching Monte when he got called up. It kind of blends together for me checking their scores and stats daily to see who got minutes or stats.

    Also I'm just always blown away how someone can watch college hoops and not any NBA, the NBA playoffs specifically are such a higher level of basketball than anything else.

    Fun fact. I believe last season he had more triple doubles than dunks.
