Finishing the Las Vegas Summer League with a 3-2 record was even better. But this week was about development for the rookies and the young veterans. And on this night, that development was apparent. Rudy Gobert was dominant in the paint against the Blazers, grabbing 15 rebounds, scoring 11 points and blocking three shots. Dante Exum had nine points, five rebounds and three assists to go along w...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

Dante Exum followed a sensational debut with another solid outing. But Utah's 87-71 win over the Milwaukee Bucks at the Thomas & Mack Center happened largely because of the offense.

Saturday was just a Summer League game, one where the Philadelphia 76ers would pull off a close win against the Utah Jazz.

Utah defended well. Rookie guard Dante Exum was at times sensational in his summer league debut. Rudy Gobert looked like a legitimate NBA big man. Malcolm Thomas exhibited electric athleticism, shot-blocking and rebounding. But there was plenty not to like as well.

It wasn't only the rim protection. Or the increased strength. There was a certain edge that Jazz second year big Rudy Gobert played with on Thursday night. Indeed, on the interior, Gobert dominated defensively in the open practice before nearly 10,000 fans. He was omnipresent in the lane. He gobbled up seemingly every rebound. He covered for the mistakes of his guards on the defensive end. He ran the floor.

Utah’s first-round draft pick passed up open shots. He wouldn’t drive to the basket, and searched to find himself in one of his first experiences playing pro basketball. Finally, Jazz head coach Quin Snyder had seen enough. He called Hood over and issued the small forward his first direct challenge. “I told him to start shooting the ball,” Snyder said. “At this point, I’d rather him shoot a tough and contested shot than pass up a shot.” So began Hood’s intro...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.
