    Tony Jones: Mike Conley, Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell are all out tonight in Phoenix. Royce O’Neale, Joe Ingles and Bojan Bogdanovic are all questionable

    Though Bogdanovic missed the potential game-winner against the Warriors, he once again showed why he should be the team’s go-to option in last-second situations.


    Of course, the only reason Bogdanovic had the ball late in the game was that Mitchell missed the game due to a concussion.


    During his Jazz career, Bogdanovic has two buzzer-beating game-winners, both of which game in his first year on the roster. This season, on the other hand, Mitchell has gotten the majority of the late game opportunities and the team has struggled to get good looks.


    Now, this is truly no fault of Mitchell’s. The guard is the Jazz’s best offensive player regardless of who he shares the floor with, but late in games when it’s obvious he’s going to take the final shot, his 6-foot-1 frame can be a hindrance.

    Bogdanovic meanwhile has tremendous size for his position, and an ability to get shots off against any defender without having to alter his attack, as was clear against the Warriors.


    “Bojan Bogdanovic is as clutch a player as there is in this league,” Quin Snyder said after the loss.


    Rather than call a timeout when the Jazz secured the rebound with 10 seconds left to play, Snyder let Bogdanovic attack the Warriors in isolation and nearly scored the game-winner.


    “I think our whole team is confident when Bojan has the ball in that situation. With his size, he’s able to get a clean look, even if it’s contested and that’s what he got.” Snyder concluded.
    Bojan Bogdanovic on his potential game-winner.

    The Jazz don’t find themselves in so many close games that it has become a major storyline, but between Mitchell, Bogdanovic, and even Mike Conley all of whom have gotten the ball in late-game situations, Bogdanovic seems best suited to generate a good look.
    too bad about COTY

    The seriousness is increased as Mitchell is in the concussion protocol for the second time in the last 12 months. Multiple concussions can increase the likelihood of long-term side effects from the injury.
    that is concerning. Two in a year

    Jordan Clarkson heated up in the fourth quarter and hit some shots that made the Suns unable to relax in the closing minutes, but he brought the heat a little too late.
    he sucks

    I just don’t understand Hassan Whiteside, and it wouldn’t be the first time. It seems like he only wants to play if there’s a chance of winning. Maybe that’s it. Maybe I do understand. When the game started it looked like Whiteside had already decided that because the Jazz were playing without their starters and Ingles that they didn’t have a chance. To say that he wasn’t giving any effort in the first quarter would be the understatement of the season. I totally understand that Monday night was his first game back after being out with COVID-19 but he wouldn’t have been cleared to play if he wasn’t ready to play, and it wasn’t his conditioning that was the problem. Whiteside was lazy on screens, wasn’t giving effort on the boards, was giving up on plays and was generally just going through the motions. Then all of a sudden the Jazz (because of the effort of the other guys on the court) actually were competing with the Suns and got the lead and that seemed to wake Whiteside up. But it wasn’t consistent and it’s a really weird switch that he has. It’s so hard to even watch the other players on the court when there is one player that is so clearly not giving it as much as the rest of the guys. At this rate, Whiteside isn’t likely to garner nearly as much interest as was thought early on in the season, if any. If he continues to have swings where his effort is in question so much, it really wouldn’t surprise me if this was his last season in the league.
    there's a reason he's on a minimum contract. Looks like he should be the best player on the floor but is far from it because of effort
