Rodney Hood
THE Utah Jazz started strong, the Sydney Kings fought back, and a game that finished with the expected result had its fun moments. The Jazz completed the 108-84 victory over the NBL side, completing an exciting opener to the NBL vs NBA series that will take place over the next few weeks. Accurate statistics weren't readily available, but NBA.com had Rodney Hood (6'8''-F-92, college: Duke) lead the way with 18 points for the Jazz, while Rudy Gobert (7'1''-C-92) finished with 11 points and 10 rebounds. For the Kings, Perry Ellis (6'8''-F-93, college: Kansas) dropped 14 points and five rebounds, while Todd Blanchfield chipped in with eight points and nine rebounds. 'It was a bit different hearing our (Australian) national anthem. It was cool, really good experience, and I'm glad I got to be a part of it,' Joe Ingles (6'8''-SF-87) said after his team's win. 'Everyone played hard, gave it their all. The connectivity we've got from the couple of weeks we've been together is pretty special, and I think it'll only get better and stronger as we go on.' It was a rough first quarter by the Kings, who looked to be overwhelmed by the Jazz's length and athleticism. Derrick Favors opened the game with a strong, two-handed jam, before a turnover led to a Rodney Hood dunk in transition; the Jazz beginning the game on a 7-0 run. A Todd Blanchfield layup got the Kings on the board, but it was the Jazz who were in control for much of the opening period. The Jazz's young guards joined the show toward the end of the first quarter, with rookie, Donovan Mitchell (6'3''-G-96, college: Louisville), hitting a three after being switch onto a big-man, before Dante Exum (6'6''-PG-95) finished a pretty reverse layup to put the Jazz up 26-9. 'I thought they showed a lot of character being down like they were,' Jazz head coach, Quin Snyder , said. 'It was a 20-point game in the first quarter and the game could have done either way. 'I think the score was deceiving in that through the meat of the game they were in the game, shot it well. Entering the second quarter, the Kings' starting line-up managed to get some consecutive points up, on the Jazz's bench. Back-to-back three-pointers from Perry Ellis and Blanchfield capped off an 8-0 Kings run, forcing a Jazz time-out. Both teams went back and forth toward the end of the second quarter. Isaac Humphries (7'1''-C-98, college: Kentucky) finished a pair of buckets around the rim, while Rudy Gobert responded in kind on the other end, completing a series of highlight dunks. The half was capped off by a Gobert jam, coming off some impressive pick-and-roll play from Australia's Joe Ingles. The Jazz led the Kings 58-47 heading into the main break. In what was a trend, of sorts, in the first half, Gobert opened the third quarter with another dunk, again highlighting the athletic advantage of the NBA team. Blanchfield continued his admirable game with a layup, but it was Hood who continued to heat up, scoring five quick points to bring his total up to 20, early in the period. An open Cadee three-pointer was answered by an Exum layup, with the Jazz's leading jumping to 70-56, late in the third period. Donovan Mitchell ended the third with a three-pointer from the Wing, with the Jazz entering the final quarter with a 77-60 lead. Mitchell continued to be aggressive as the final quarter began, helping the Jazz's lead extend to beyond 20 points. It was a battle between the very end of each team's bench to finish the game, with the Jazz winning the fourth quarter to ultimately come away with the 108-83 win. The next game that will see an NBL team go up against an NBA team will tip off on October 8 (October 9, AEST), with Melbourne United going up against Russell Westbrook, Paul George, and the Oklahoma City Thunder at Chesapeake Energy Arena. Next, the Brisbane Bullets and Phoenix Suns will go at it, tipping off on October 13 (October 14, AEST) at Talking Stick Resort Arena.
