Dante Exum suited up for the first game of his third year of Summer League today, finishing the game with 18 points, 6 rebounds, and 5 assists in the Jazz’s 87-74 win over the San Antonio Spurs.
Exum, as expected, was very impressive. Nailing his first three of the game, hitting jumpers off screens and getting to the hoop with ease.
It was the exact performance you’d want to see from a guy entering what’s technically his fourth NBA season.
But it was one play that stood out more than most in this men against boys battle. Spurs guard Bryn Forbes was driving to the lane and threw up a floater, only to be blocked straight outta Utah.
Dante Exum rises up for the denial 🖐
