In a must win game against the Grizzlies tonight, the Utah Jazz shot 32% from the field. They came out flat and missed a lot of simple shots. Although they were playing a pretty good team, one still would have expected them to play better than they did. Credit must be given to the Grizzlies though, since they do have one of the better defenses in the NBA.
Derrick Favors contributed to the poor shooting tonight, going 2-9 from the field and scoring 4 points. Although he shot poorly tonight, he was still able to help the team by gathering 11 rebounds, 3 assists, 3 steals, and 2 blocks. There’s a lot of promise in his game and he has the potential to be an all star when given the playing time. The Jazz’s season is now over and the team will have to make some decisions on Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap during free agency.
