“We know what he brings,” Mo Williams said. “So we expect that out of him and when he comes in he gives effort, he gives extra possessions but he does the small things that really pay big dividends down the stretch.”

Carroll has become a fan favorite in Utah, thanks to the pop his game is known to provide, but also because of an imaginative fashion sense, an active presence on social media and occasional bowling meet-and-greets.

The fifth-year forward found himself wrestling for the ball on the court several times in the second quarter and came out of it with a minor wound.

“I scraped my knee,” he said, “but that’s part of who I am. That’s why I think the fans love me so much, because I go out there and leave it all on the floor. A guy like me, I don’t take nothing for granted.”
