SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – After leaving the game in the second quarter due to an ankle injury, Utah Jazz sharpshooter Joe Ingles silenced some Detroit Pistons fans with a clutch 3-pointer in the fourth.

Ingles scored five of his 13 points in the second half after leaving the game with an ankle sprain with a minute and a half remaining in the first half. He exited the floor and headed straight for the locker room, but was able to return to start the second half.

Kiss Of Death

His biggest basket came with 24 seconds remaining and the Pistons threatening with the score 95-91 for Utah. Ingles drained a corner three over Pistons star Blake Griffin and then blew a kiss to fans that were cheering for the Pistons all night.

Ingles Talks Smack To Griffin

It wasn’t the first “savage” moment of the game for Ingles. Following a foul called on Ingles against Griffin, Ingles was captured trash-talking in Griffin’s ear.

Ingles finished with 13 points and eight assists in the Jazz’s 100-94 victory.
