SALT LAKE CITY — The Utah Jazz unofficially got in the win column at the NBA’s bubble in Orlando on Saturday, outlasting the Miami Heat 101-99 in their second of three scrimmages.
Here are three takeaways from the contest.
- Long term, it probably won’t mean a whole lot, but it’s worth noting that the Jazz played most of the fourth quarter — and all of the final six minutes — with rookies on the floor in a close game and outlasted the Heat.
- In a back-and-forth game, Utah was tremendous in the third quarter on both ends of the floor in building a double-digit lead, which it gave away when Rudy Gobert came off the floor. For the day, Gobert scored 21 points with eight rebounds and two blocks.
- Mike Conley came alive in the third quarter after a slow first half and finished with 17 points, six rebounds and an assist.
