The Utah Jazz fared well during the 2021 All-Star festivities. Here's how each Jazz player did during the mid-season competitions.
Conley subbed in for an injured Devin Booker in both the Three-Point Contest as well as the All-Star Game. Conley ripped through the three-point competition, finding himself in the final round against notorious three-point shooter Stephen Curry. Conley was leading in the final round until Curry's last ball. The Warriors guard scorched the net to beat the Jazzman by one-point.
Conley also appeared in his first All-Star game of his career, scoring three point's off of a Donovan Mitchell assist. He also added two assists and a steal in his All-Star Game debut.
Mitchell was trying to become the first player to ever win a dunk contest (2018) and a three-point contest in NBA history. Unfortunately, Mitchell's hopes of that becoming a reality ended after the first round of his three-point contest debut.
During the All-Star Game, Mitchell scored 15-points and added 4-assists, which included an assist to Utah teammate Mike Conley. One of the highlights of the night came with 9-seconds left in the first quarter when the Knick's Julius Randle lobbed a pass to Mitchell for an alley-oop.
Gobert was the first of Utah's players to score on the night, finishing with 10-ponts and 7-assists in his second All-Star Game appearance. His main highlight came with four minutes left in the first quarter when a turnover ended up in a LeBron James bounce-pass-alley-oop to Gobert.
Head Coach Quin Snyder:
For the first time since 1984 (Frank Layden), a Utah Jazz coach led an All-Star team from the sidelines. In his All-Star coaching debut, Snyder led Gobert and Team LeBron to a 170-150 win over Mitchell, Conley, and Team Durant.
