ORLANDO, Fla. – The two top bench players for the Utah Jazz, Jordan Clarkson and Georges Niang were outstanding off the bench in the first half against the Denver Nuggets.

Midway through the second quarter, Niang and Clarkson combined for seven three-pointers made and the duo missed just once.

The Jazz held a 49-32 lead over the Nuggets with 6:39 remaining in the second quarter.

Niang shot a perfect 3 for 3 from beyond the arc for 9 points while Clarkson went 4 of 5 from the perimeter and had 12 points for the Jazz. He is the first player for Utah to reach double figures in scoring.

At that time, the Jazz hit 10 three-pointers on 18 attempts. Mike Conley, Royce O’Neale and Joe Ingles each knocked down a three-pointer in the first half.

The Jazz are coming off of a loss to the San Antonio Spurs on Friday afternoon in a game where they didn’t have Donovan Mitchell, Rudy Gobert, Mike Conley and Royce O’Neale due to rest or injury.

This is the sixth reseeding game for the Jazz in the NBA bubble in Orlando. They are currently 2-3 in the restart games.
