Game 59: Utah Jazz (43-15) @ Houston Rockets (15-43)

Classic trap game, as the Rockets have been awful since the Harden trade.

Also, didn't even notice that Exum is on their roster. He's out with an injury, btw.
Draft Nate Wolters - FAILED

The real decision the Jazz FO is making is between Continuity, Cap Flexibility, and Cash Considerations.

Further proof that Clarkson is the NBA's best off the bench:

Niang #2 and Ingles also on the list. Makes sense, since they spend a lot of time on the court together. I don't always give a lot of love to Niang (at least he has Bogy ahead of him on my $hi!-list), but he does add value to the team, and without that horrid start to the season would probably be #1 in the NBA (ahead of Ingles) in 3%. He's got a skill, just wish he had more.

Kuddos to the Jazz bench.

I don't believe there has ever been a time that the 6th man voting had the top 2 guys on the same team. Ingles certainly deserves tons of consideration & may be the frontrunner if JC wasn't gobbling up all the press. Harrell & L.Williams were 1 & 3 last year. Both in the top 3 the year before. Gordon & Lou were also 1 & 3 in 2017. Side note, a Clipper has won 6th Man the last 3 years, and 4 of the last 5.

I was surprised to see Niang so high on that list, but his 3 point shooting has really been invaluable..... Like you said, if he could just contribute anything else.....
