News

SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4 Sports) – The Utah Jazz blew away another international team in the preseason Wednesday night, crusing past Maccabi Haifa from Israel, 117-78.

Alec Burks led the Jazz with 16 points, while Rudy Gobert and Joe Ingles each added 12 points.

16 different players scored for the Jazz, who shot 56 percent from the floor.

The Jazz, who played without Rodney Hood, Joe Johnson and Raul Neto, held Maccabi to just 30 percent shooting.

“We’re really making a point of emphasis of when we do gets stops to push the ball, throw ahead and make plays,” head coach Quin Snyder said. “I think in doing that, there’s a growth process that occurs. Little things here an there, maybe we’re not spaced right, a pass is thrown a little behind a guy. Guys make the wrong read, but they’re still getting to know each other as much as anything.”

“I think there’s a lot of positives to take,” said Thabo Sefolosha, who had six points and six rebounds. “A little bit too many turnovers early on in the game, but that’s expected early on. We’re still learning how to play with each other.”

Jonas Jerebko, Dante Exum, Joel Bolomboy and Royce O’Neal scored 9 points a piece.

The Jazz next host Phoenix in their first NBA preseason game Friday night at 7:00.
