The Utah Jazz were primarily a pick-and-roll team under former head coach Jerry Sloan. As Sloan left, the team has relied on the pick-and-roll less.

With Trey Burke and Danté Exum as point guards, the team is expected to get back to their glory days with the pick-and-roll. In fact, Exum said that the pick-and-roll is his favorite play.

The Jazz defeated the Milwaukee Bucks, 87-71, on Monday night. The 19-year-old had six points, two rebounds, three assists, and three turnovers in the game.

He continues to show potential, as the Jazz have high hopes for him. Exum and Burke played together in the backcourt during the game.

After the win, Exum said that he did not think he played well in the win. While he felt this way, Exum ran many pick-and-rolls with Rudy Gobert.

This was Exum’s second game at the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas. In his debut on Saturday, he had 10 points, three rebounds, three assists, one steal, and one turnover.
