Las Vegas • The summer league run for the Utah Jazz has come to an end.
With a 92-86 loss to the Memphis Grizzlies, the Jazz have been eliminated from the annual Vegas tournament in the round of 16. Utah led for much of the first half and battled through most of the third quarter. Ultimately, the Grizzlies were too much down the stretch in the fourth quarter.
Jaren Jackson Jr., the No. 4 overall pick of the NBA draft last month, scored nine points, adding nine rebounds and seven blocked shots. Second-round pick Jevon Carter shredded Utah’s defense off the dribble for much of the night, scoring 26 points, added grbbing eight rebounds and six assists.
Georges Niang led the Jazz with 18 points, nine rebounds and five assists.
