What a show! On this week’s Salt City Hoops Show on ESPN700, Ben Dowsett and I look at Dante Exum’s unexpected move to the starting lineup. Did he deserve the starting nod, and does this move help the Jazz? We discuss. We also look at the Jazz’s offensive struggles, and what they plan to do with the 10-day contract decisions coming up this weekend. All-Star starters were announced, and we talk about whether they’re fair, and if a new system can be introduced. Then, AllThatAmar of SLCDunk joins us to talk about the Synergy stats he published, and what they reveal about what the Jazz are doing well.

Dan Clayton joins us in the 2nd hour, talking about Dante, Rudy’s assists, and more. As this occurs, a rather exciting Jazz/Bucks matchup was concluding, so there may be some moments of anxiousness. We then discuss that Jazz win, as well as go Around the NBA. All that and more on this week’s Salt City Hoops Show!

    Nice show guys, just listening right now to the part that touches on open shot fg%. I was just thinking. and wondering about your thoughts on this, do the Jazz get so many open shots (per you top 10 in the league in open fga’s) because other teams want them shooting them? With how limited we are on offense (worst in the West in a strict ppg) it seems very plausible that we only have so many shots that actually have opposing teams worried and everything else the other team is really okay with us shooting?

    I know that with Enes’s recent midrange slump he’s getting left wide open all the time. It also seems to me that Burke very often has open shots that he “has” to take but he just doesn’t convert very well.

    Thoughts?
