SALT LAKE CITY – The Utah Jazz got their best performance from second-year guard Leandro Bolmaro in their 82-65 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers.

Bolmaro scored a summer league-high 19 points to go with five rebounds in 27 minutes of action.

The guard started the game slowly but caught fire late in the second quarter scoring eight of the Jazz final 10 points of the first half.

That carried over into the third quarter where Bolmaro added six points and two steals to help the Jazz build a big lead.

Bolmaro left the floor midway through the third quarter and the Clippers quickly erased the deficit with an 18-0 run, highlighting the impact the Argentine guard was having on both ends of the floor.

The 21-year-old had struggled in his first three appearances with the Jazz averaging 8.0 points on a difficult 24 percent from the floor and 15 percent from the three-point

Against the Clippers, Bolmaro shot an efficient 8-15 from the floor and 3-7 from the three-point line, flashing his potential as a scoring threat for the Jazz next season.

The guard has superior athleticism which shows up on both ends of the floor and is comfortable running an offense with the ball in his hands. He’s struggled to shoot the ball throughout his professional career even prior to joining the NBA but could be a difference maker if he develops a consistent jump shot.

Two-way guard Johnny Juzang also had his best performance of the Summer League in the loss scoring 14 points and grabbing four rebounds, despite shooting 3-13 from the floor.

Juzang hit three first half three-pointers before cooling off in the second half.

Jared Butler had the evening off after playing in five of the Jazz previous six contests including two appearances in the Salt Lake Summer League.

Former Utah State guard Justin Bean is a member of the Clippers Summer League roster and scored two points and grabbed two rebounds in the 13 minutes in the win.
