Neto, like Rose, finished with 14 points, a career-high, only he accomplished that total on 6-of-8 shooting from the field. Whenever a play broke down, Neto was able to use his dribble creatively, and wreak havoc on Chicago’s defense. In response, Rose often forced shots. “I tried to fight every time on defense, and on offense I tried to be aggressive and find my shot,” Neto said. “Derrick is a great player, I’ve been watching him play since he was an MVP. I just came out there not afraid and be aggressive on defense, and try to make him make mistakes. I thought my teammates did a great job of helping me. Any time I got beat, Rudy Gobert was there to make him take a tough shot. It was great team defense.”
“Raul has an attention to detail that’s rare in rookies,” Jazz head coach Quin Snyder said. “He’s an extremely focused guy, and he wants to make the right plays and wants to help the team win however he can.” Neto does the little things that don’t necessarily show up in a box score, and he’s ok with it. He wants to be a leader, and he wants to establish great rapport with his teammates. While his stats don’t pop off the page, you can see improvement in his game and in his decision-making. Against the Pacers last Saturday night, Neto scored a career-high 13 points (and made one of the best trick shots you’ll ever see) on 5-for-8 from the field in only 18 minutes.
