With the emergence of Donovan Mitchell, the Jazz have found their future. With Rudy Gobert inside and Mitchell manning the back-court, Utah has a duo that could lead the team for years to come.
Where does that leave Rodney Hood, though? Apparently on the trade block.
According to multiple sources, there is a growing feeling around the league that Utah is looking to move the former 23rd overall pick.
Basically anything outside of that is where Adebayo still has room to grow. He’s finished 63.9 percent of his shots in the restricted area this season off of a steady diet of layups and dunks, but he offers little value outside of the paint. His post-ups in particular have been problematic for the Heat, as he has scored a miserable 22 points on 29 post-up possessions.
It isn’t a large sample size, but Adebayo hasn’t looked comfortable scoring on face-ups and with his back to the basket on those limited possessions. His mind seems to be moving quicker than his feet, and he isn’t comfortable yet finishing plays with floaters and hook shots.
Harden is expected to be limited to 20-25 minutes Thursday. The Rockets then play the Warriors on Saturday in a matchup between the best two teams in the Western Conference.
Head-to-head Each Category allows you to select “X” number of statistical categories. Team totals are accumulated and a win, loss or tie is credited in each category based on the matchup results (i.e. 6-3-1 in a 10 category league). If the league creator sets Home Team wins as a tiebreaker, the home team will win every tied category.
Head-to-head Most Categories allows you to set “X” number of statistical categories. For each scoring period (usually Monday through Sunday) team totals are accumulated in each of the categories. At the end the scoring period the winner is determined by which team wins the most number of categories. The end result is a win (1-0-0), loss (0-1-0) or tie (0-0-1). These results correspond directly to each team’s overall record.
