No, Utah’s general manager wasn’t grinning profusely. But you could tell he was pleased by the Jazz summer league edition and some of the results this week. Utah went 3-2 in Las Vegas, winning its last game on Friday night over Portland. The record is almost secondary to the progress made as the week continued. Rudy Gobert proved that he is indeed ready for rotation minutes, turning in a performance that was dominati...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

He played the position a bit during his senior year at Belmont, but nobody was comparing him to Chris Paul. His one year with the Utah Jazz was defined as a shooting guard. But if he’s going to have staying power in the NBA, Clark will probably have to do it as a floor leader. That’s what Clark faced this week at the Las Vegas summer league, proving to the Jazz front office that he can run an offense, and doing so with Trey Bur...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

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.

Jazz point guard Trey Burke raced into the frontcourt on Monday against the Milwaukee Bucks. Seeing a closed lane, he slid off a pick from Rudy Gobert and swung the ball to Dante Exum. The rookie immediately passed to Rodney Hood, who had an open shot if he wanted it. But he passed up the good look, took two dribbles into the lane and gave it to Malcolm Thomas. At this point, Thomas could have gone up strong, and nobody would have batted an eye.

They grind you down, they keep coming at you, and before you know it, you’re 10 points behind and on your way to a loss. On Thursday afternoon, that description applied to the Spurs of summer league as well. The Utah Jazz suffered an 86-77 loss at the hands of San Antonio in the second round of the playoff format at the Thomas & Mack Center.

Over five days, his vast array of offense has been on display in the Las Vegas Summer League. The post moves, the step back jumpers, the ability to take it hard to the basket, or drop in feathery 3-pointers. He’s done all of that. But it’s come in spurts.
