The former Duke standout got his first minutes as a professional.
Perfect from the free throw line and the field. Grayson Allen’s first 11 minutes of professional basketball showed the versatility that warranted the Utah Jazz drafting him with the 21st overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft. Unfortunately for his team, they were on the wrong end of a 92-84 loss to the Memphis Grizzlies.
Regardless of tonight’s outcome you saw the value of Grayson Allen.
He’s a floor spacer who can attack a close out and both find open shooters and finish on top of the rim.
Had the Jazz been shooting well he would have had 3 dimes to go along with 7 points in 10 minutes.

Allen debuted in the third quarter with the Jazz down 62-56, but he shined when he entered in the fourth quarter. The Duke product flashed his athleticism as the club tried to climb back into a double digit game.
