Rodney Hood shot 7-of-12, including a perfect 3-for-3 from deep, in Friday’s home win over the Suns, finishing with 19 points and a pair of steals.
The steals and triples combo will be key to Hood’s value, and hopefully he can stay healthy. Injuries robbed him of his rhythm last year and just staying on the court for a new-look Jazz squad would do him wonders. There are a lot of touches to go around in Utah this year and they really need perimeter scoring, so who’s to say that Hood isn’t the man for the job? He’s an excellent pick in the late rounds.
