Instant Replay: Eric Paschall Jokingly Guards Joe Ingles After Rockets Fail To Defend
SALT LAKE CITY – Utah Jazz forward Eric Paschall jokingly defended fellow Jazzman Joe Ingles after the Houston Rockets failed to guard the three-point line.
The Rockets hosted the Jazz on Thursday, October 28.
With 8:02 left in the first half, Paschall hilariously stretched his hand out to defend an Ingles’ shot from downtown after the Rockets left the Jazz sharpshooter wide-open.
Ingles knocked down the triple for his fourth three-pointer of the opening two quarters.
