As the Utah Jazz’s preseason began, one of the top storylines was how rookie Jared Butler was going to perform since it would be fans’ first look at him in the NBA because he did not play in summer league.
Through two games, Butler has more than delivered, as he has averaged 19 points and three assists.
Butler’s performance so far definitely has Jazz, and even NBA fans in general, quite excited. Here’s some of the reaction from Wednesday night’s game against the Dallas Mavericks in which he scored 22 points and dished four assists.
Instead of running an offense the Jazz should simply let Jared Butler iso his defender every possession— Jeremy 👑 (@NBA_Jeremy1) October 7, 2021
