Jordan Clarkson from the Utah Jazz talks 6th man of the year, Utah's breakout season and more.
“I don’t see why they wouldn’t be in the [MVP] conversation, but hey, it is what it is. We’re just trying to prove people wrong and get better. That’s it.”
Zion Williamson showed no fear of renowned Jazz rim protector Rudy Gobert and spearheaded a relentless — and effective — assault on the Utah basket. Williamson had 26 points, 10 rebounds and five assists, and the New Orleans Pelicans held off a late Utah comeback bid to beat the NBA-leading Jazz 129-124 on Monday night. “My mindset was, whatever I can do to give my teammates energy, I’m going to do it," said Williamson, whose dominant third quarter gave New Orleans a double-digit lead heading into the fourth.
