O’Neale’s one-man show started by making a driving shot with 8:46 left in the quarter.

16 seconds later, the Jazzman blocked a layup attempt by Memphis center Jonas Valanciunas.

O’Neale collected the rebound and buried a 29-foot triple on the other end.

24 seconds later, the forward drilled another shot from beyond the arc.

O’Neale had the eight points on 3-4 shooting, including 2-3 from distance.

The forward also recorded eight rebounds, one steal, and a block during his time on the court.
