Niang’s Perfect Pass Leads to O’Neale Dunk

Dec 13, 2019, 8:38 PM | Updated: Dec 14, 2019, 1:42 am

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – The Utah Jazz had a few highlight-worthy plays in the 1st half.  Donovan Mitchell had two fantastic dunks. Jazz fans are used to seeing those types of plays from the dynamic Donovan.

Joe Ingles performed some trickery with his dribbling and Bojan Bogdanovic heated up at the end of the half with a couple of 3-point shots.

Those highlights were all nice, but the prettiest assist and dunk of the night should go to Royce O’Neale and Georges Niang.

So there were a lot of caveats when it comes to the best highlight of the first half, but fans were ecstatic when O’Neale threw down the perfect pass from Niang. It was Georges’ only assist of the first half.

Royce also had a steal and dunk earlier in the half. O’Neale and Bogdanovic each had 12 points at the break to lead the Jazz in scoring.

Royce was also proficient from outside, making 2-3 3 point shots and was 5-9 overall from the field. 9 field goal attempts for O’Neale in one half would not be a record, but it certainly isn’t ordinary. He also had 2 rebounds and 2 assists and was possibly Utah’s most complete player in the half.
