SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Jazz guard Mike Conley knocked down a three-pointer for Utah’s first points of the 2021-22 NBA season.

The Jazz hosted the Oklahoma City Thunder at Vivint Arena on Wednesday, October 20.

48 seconds in Utah’s season opener and on the team’s second offensive possession, Jazzman Bojan Bogdanovic fed the ball to Conley.

Standing beyond the arc at the near angle, the veteran guard let loose on a 29-foot attempt that found the bottom of the net.

Conley’s bucket gave the Jazz an early 3-2 lead.

Last season, Conley was named an NBA All-Star for the first time in his career. He averaged 16.2 points on 44.4 percent shooting, including 41.2 percent from distance. Conley also recorded 3.5 rebounds, 6.0 assists, and 1.4 steals per contest.

The Thunder vs. Jazz game is televised on AT&T Sports Net and NBA League Pass. Streaming is available on DirecTV Stream and fuboTV. Fans can listen to the game on The Zone Sports Network (97.5 FM & 1280 AM) and KSL NewsRadio (102.7 FM and 1160 AM).
