Watch Jazz’s Keyonte George drop 33 in Las Vegas Summer League
LAS VEGAS — Keyonte George is a bucket.
Anyone who watched him play at Baylor knew he could score, the question was could he score efficiently at the next level? If Saturday was any indication, the answer is yes. George scored 33 points on 12-of-24 shooting and dished out 10 dimes.
The questions coming into the draft about George’s consistency — he shot 37.6% last season — is part of what fuels him, George said speaking to reporters postgame. He showed off his phone lock screen, which has picture of a scouting report on him and his weaknesses, saying he made it his lock screen so he sees it as a reminder every time he picks up his phone.
It’s all a good sign for a Jazz team that is evolving. George could be a key part of whatever is next in Utah.
