Dante Exum has given the Jazz faith that he could develop to be a big help off the bench, something the team will need in order to advance to the postseason and make some noise if they get there.
Exum, who had 13 points and five assists in 17 minutes on Sunday, enjoyed his best game this season at the end of a three-game trip, but it wasn’t his only good one. Against the Mavs and the Spurs, he only scored six combined points in 20 minutes, but also had seven assists. Bench scoring has been a particular weakness of the Jazz lately, with Jae Crowder appearing as the only reliable off-the-bench scorer, even though he doesn’t often create his own shots. It’s good to see him back healthy and Exum probably has some low-end value in deeper leagues but he isn’t expected to make much noise unless an injury opens up minutes for him.
