Joe Ingles went for 12 points, seven rebounds, five assists, two steals and three 3-pointers in the Jazz’s win over the Thunder on Friday night.
The status of Ricky Rubio is unknown right now as he left early on in Game 6 with hamstring soreness. Some may have expected Dante Exum to step in for Rubio but he only logged three minutes. While Donovan Mitchell handles the majority of the ballhandling, his focus is so strong on driving the ball or going for pull-up jumpers, Ingles is the guy that operates as a playmaking forward for the Jazz. He’s obviously a good shooter as proven by his 3-of-6 shooting from deep tonight but if Rubio is hampered by his injury to start the Rockets series, watch for Jumpin’ Joe to spend a lot of time leading the offense.
