Utah: Can They Score Without Gordon Hayward and George Hill?

Last year, Gordon Hayward took another step in his career where he became an All-Star for the first time and led the Jazz to the playoffs.

Not only was he their only All-Star, but he was their leading scorer by a significant margin. He led the team in scoring by averaging 21.9 points a game. The second leading scorer on the team was at 16.9 points per game…

That second leading scorer was George Hill, who is now a member of the Sacramento Kings.

So who will score?

Ricky Rubio comes in as the new point guard while they return Ingles, Hood, Favors and Gobert.

Utah’s defense should be at an elite level once again, the only questions surround their scoring and it’s a big question.

Bonus Question: Can Rodney Hood Be the Answer at Two Guard?
