The Utah Jazz revolted last night against the Oklahoma City Thunder (106-96). A great victory to restore their confidence and widen the gap with their leadership position. Georges Niang excelled during this meeting, a career record.
Even though he lost the first and last quarter, Mitchell’s teammates (22 points) and Bogdanovic (23 points) did what was necessary during the other semi-finals, scoring 33 points per round. While they had lost the last match because they could not keep the undefeated streak at home, the Jazz recovered with this victory.
The author of a double double, Georges Niang was impressive. Tonight he was part of the big 5 and started the game strong with 4 award-winning shots during the first round. He played 34 minutes in this game, 18 points (including 6 shots), 10 rebounds and 3 assists. In addition, this is the first double of his NBA career. The strong wing has scored well this year.
This season, Niang has averaged 5.5 points per game on 43.5% of shots, including 40.7% for 3 points. He also averages 2.1 rebounds and 0.7 assists at 13.9 minutes per game.
