The Jazz came into Brooklyn to face the Nets and were in control from start to finish. Coming back from one game off for sickness, Donovan Mitchell scored 25 points. Joe Ingles was brilliant pouring in 27 points with 4 assists. Ingles tore up the Nets tonight shooting 6/8 from three putting Kyrie Irving and company to bed.
Sure, everyone will look at this stretch of games the Jazz have won and point to an easy schedule. Even though that’s definitely true, the Jazz are playing at an elite level right now that is night and day to how the played to start the year.
Earlier this season the Jazz bench gave up leads in every game, it didn’t matter how good the opponent was. Every night it came down to how well the starters could overcompensate. Adding Jordan Clarkson, benching Ed Davis for Tony Bradley and releasing Jeff Green has changed this Jazz team.
The starters were always this good, but the bench was so bad it masked how well they were playing. But now that the Jazz bench is holding leads, and sometimes even extending them, the Jazz are winning and will continue to win through the rest of the season and into the playoffs.
