The Jazz have the league’s best record (27-9) at the break and have been playing really good basketball all season long. So why were their star players the last to be picked? LeBron gave this explanation: “I just want to say something, because there’s no slander to the Utah Jazz but you guys got to understand, just like in video games growing up, we never played with Utah. Even as great as Karl Malone and John Stockton were, we never would have picked those guys. Never.”

Joe Ingles breaks John Stockton's three-point record

There were times early in Joe Ingles’ NBA career when his coaches and teammates had to encourage him to shoot when he was open. The end result? The No. 1 3-point shooter in Utah Jazz history. On Friday night, Ingles made his 846th 3-point bucket, passing Hall of Fame point guard John Stockton (845) for the most 3-point makes in franchise history. Ingles hit his first triple of the night midway through the first quarter. A moment later, Ingles used a screen to get open for his historic bucket. He raised his arms in celebration as his teammates cheered him on.
“If you told me back then there would be a chance I would break any of those guys’ records, Karl [Malone] and John and those guys that are huge to this organization, I definitely would have laughed in your face,” Ingles said Friday with the record in striking distance. “To be anywhere close to it and have a chance to take it over … I don’t really know what to think too much about it.” Stockton, a 38.4-percent 3-point shooter over the course of his illustrious 19-year career, also owns the franchise record for most triples attempted (2,203). Ingles is a career 40.8-percent shooter from deep and entered Friday night with 2,067 total attempts.
