Enes Kanter Shines During Jazz Scrimmage
(Enes) Kanter showed that he has plenty of basketball moves after the action began. Utah’s projected starting center scored 15 points with five rebounds (unofficial stats) while leading Jazz Blue to a 44-43 win over Gordon Hayward’s Jazz White squad.
This from a guy who barely began playing five-on-five basketball a week and a half ago after spending the previous six months rehabbing his way back from shoulder surgery.
“He’s been working his butt off. (Since) he’s gotten on the floor, he’s working himself back into basketball shape,” Jazz coach Tyrone Corbin said. “When he gets that ball down low, he’s still a big-bodied guy. He knows how to get space and he has a good touch down there, so he can make some things happen in the paint.”
