Joe Ingles vs Golden State

Joe Ingles with 21 points, 5 rebounds, 4 steals against the NBA's top team. +10 in a 7 point loss. 7/13 FG, 5/9 3P. Great output off the bench.


The Jazz were missing four starters yet still made it competitive by the end. Dante Exum got another start and played 37 minutes but was cold with 1/11 FG and 0/5 3P. However, he was +0 and had 5 assists at least.

Kudos to slow-mo.

I reckon GSW should make some calls about Exum. Get him at bargain basement.

The kid is literally at NBA's the worst possible team for his skill set. Get out and run, have some fun and get the confidence up. Frankly he plays like a scared child. I guess that's what he is, relatively speaking.

Imo confidence is all he needs.

Confidence and also a jump shot that is actually worthy of confidence

excited to see Ingles play in the NBL, I reckon he gets a two year extension from the Jazz after this at around 8 million, then he comes back to Adelaide.

He will cost the Sixer's 300,000 or so a season, so if Sixers want him they probably can't commit long-term to anyone like Randle...

I can't see Exum being there much longer.

Exum is a bust. I understand he is playing his second year and recovering from an ACL injury, but I can't see him improving too much. Send him to D-League just like they did to Rudy.

The problem for Exum is he hasn't played for 2 out of the last 3 years. Sitting out that year prior to the draft may have hindered his development you can see flashes of the potential he possesses but he is very raw on offence he doesn't know how to finish around the rim at the moment.

Yeah not playing has definitely hindered his progress.

He can still turn it around as the single biggest problem is his lack of aggression. Yeah the jump shot isnt great but there are plenty of NBA players who've had long careers without a consistent J, but you need to contribute in other ways and for him its going to thr rack. Just make him watch videos of russell Westbrook on repeat

The problem with that Cram was that he was doing that (attacking the ring) a few weeks ago and then the coached called him out for trying to get his, told him to focus on D. Really mixed messages as all you would hear before was be aggressive. I think he really needs to have the ball and be able to operate at the top of the key so he can probe and work from there. Also the jump shot needs to improve but that is going to be a long process. I think a D League stint would be good for him, go work on his flaws where he wont get pulled every time he makes a mistake.
