Dante Exum 13 Points Full Highlights (1/2/2014)

Some speculated that, with Alec Burks and Rodney Hood out, Dante Exum would get his first career start at shooting guard.

It seems kind of funny, looking back on it. Such optimism! Do they think Quin Snyder, who has long leashes for all his players except Dante, would ever start his Aussie rookie? No, not when there is Patrick Christopher on the roster, the great and starter-quality Patrick Christopher, he of three career made baskets.

Perhaps in a show of defiance, Dante ended up with his career high in points tonight, scoring 13 mainly in his preferred fashion, three pointers. With Burke struggling so badly, it might make sense to try out some more lineups with Dante as the primary ball handler. The Jazz are so bad, I don’t know why developing their 5th overall pick wouldn’t be their top priority. The ghost of Ty Corbin’s ineptitude still watches over the franchise, apparently.
