Opening Play-Offs 2022, Jazz went on to Parquet of a private Mavericks team of Luka Donic (93-99) and takes the advantage of the ground. The Timberwolves then created the surprise by dominating the grizzlies on their parquet (117-130).

Jazz is ambitious for play-offs and immediately demonstrated it. On the Mavericks Parquet, the Salt Lake City-based franchise won the match 1 of the series opposing them in the first round of the West Conference. An opening match of the final phase that was initially undecided but, despite the absence of a Luka Donic last minute package due to a left calf injury, the Mavs made a first half interesting meeting . Thanks in particular to Jalen Brunson (24 points, 7 rebounds, 5 passes) and Spencer Dinwiddie (22 points, 8 passes), Dallas's franchise has made the race in mind to lead nine points to three and a half minutes from weather. It is then that jazz has embraced, with Bojan Bogdanovic (26 points, 5 rebounds) to the maneuver. The result has been a change of trend and two points ahead for Utah at the break. With a Rudy Gobert more rebounder than marker (5 points, 17 rebounds), the franchise based in Salt Lake City did not cut his effort back on the floor. The gap was then up to a maximum of twelve lengths in the end of the third quarter. The last twelve minutes have first seen the jazz holding good before folding against the end of the toneless match of the Mavericks. A Dallas team that came closer to one point two minutes from the buzzer. However, Donovan Mitchell has shown adroit at free throws (32 points, 6 rebounds, 6 passes) to allow the Jazz to win six points (93-99) and take the benefit in the series.

Facing Grizzlies, second of the West Conference, the Timberwolves created the surprise. A meeting whose outcome has little doubts.

In pride and with the support of their audience, the grizzlies reacted to the beginning of the second quarter with a 10-0 that allowed them to pass for the first time of the match. However, JA MORANT teammates (32 points, 8 passes) did not know how to keep this short advantage for a very long time. Indeed, after having seen their two points award disappear, the grizzlies were no longer able to iron before the score. At best have they managed to equalize twice in the heart of the third quarter.

It's Jon Scheyer's time to lead Duke men's basketball. He's ready for the challenge

  It's Jon Scheyer's time to lead Duke men's basketball. He's ready for the challenge Jon Scheyer is the first new Duke men's basketball coach since 1980 with Mike Krzyzewski retiring. It's a job he's ready to handle.“Coach K’s humor sort of surprises people,” said Collins, head coach at Northwestern for the last nine years and a 13-year assistant for Krzyzewski. “He’d always say to players that he was a true inner city Chicagoian, then say about me: ‘He’s not from real Chicago. He’s from the suburbs.’ Then he’d talk about knowing all these city streets and shortcuts. That same joke he’d use with me, he’d use with Jon.
