Dante Exum posted seven points, two assists, six boards, two steals on 3-of-14 from the field and 1-of-7 from deep in Monday’s win over the Warriors.
Exum started and played 36 minutes but his shot was not falling. This has been another tough season for the 2nd-year guard. He sat out last season with a torn ACL so expectations were low coming into this year. Statistically not much improved other than an increase in field goal percentage. The 21-year-old is also stuck behind George Hill and has Shelvin Mack to contend with in the backcourt. The Jazz have one more game against the Spurs on Wednesday and they will be playing to win. A Jazz win plus a Clippers loss will give the Jazz a higher seed and home court advantage in the playoffs.
