As Ingles gave a thoughtful response about the addition of George Hill to the Jazz lineup, Ingles reminded reporters that he continues to beat the point guard in shooting contests. “He’s never in a rush,” Ingles said, “and I beat him in shooting every day in practice.” That’s when Exum, who’s been on the receiving end of Ingles’ interruptions nurnerous times, chimed in with a funny interjection before hitting the shower. “No, he doesn’t,” Exum told reporters, refuting Ingles’ claim. Ingles: “It’s 4-2. What are you talking about?” Exum smiled: “You don’t beat him every day if it’s 4-2.” Ingles: “Oh, you come down there.” It remains to be seen if Exum will accept the shooting challenge. It’s probably certain there will be a dispute in the score if he does.
Despite finding himself in this predicament, Burke remained optimistic and always kept a positive attitude. After speaking with Trey Burke’s father, Benji Burke, he said that Trey’s positivity is accredited to his “faith”. “First his faith with God,” said Benji Burke, and then he went on to say, “Nothing is worth anything without some adversity. Second, he knew and so did the Jazz management and coaching staff that he was a better player than Dante Exum and Raul Neto. Numbers never lie.”
Q: What do you expect from Dante Exum as he returns from his knee injury? Quin Snyder: As much as we can get. I think that’s an injury that he’ll be back from, but it’s not a simple thing. There’s a process that you go through — any player with any injury. I think that going from becoming healthy physically to getting to compete again to kind of finding your game and continuing to improve. We don’t really have a specific timetable on that as far as where he is, but I know he’s missed playing. He loves to play and I think this will be an opportunity for him to start doing that again and I know he’s excited and we’re excited for him.
