Aussies in NBA: Ingles comes up big in crunch time
Joe Ingles may have been struggling with his shot lately, but that all went away when the Jazz needed him most against the Kings yesterday.
Jingles stepped up and looked to have sent the game to overtime with a huge three, until Rudy Gay broke Utah's heart with a last second game-winner.
Ingles was in the thick of the action all night and finished with 8 points, 2 steals and 1 rebound in 17 minutes of game time. He finished with a +/- rating of +7, second only to Trey Burke with +9 on the team.
Ingles almost lifted his team to a memorable comeback and even though it ended in heartbreak, the fourth quarter was a massive positive for both the team and Ingles individually.
Hopefully Ingles can carry over this form tomorrow as he and the Jazz take on the Lakers at home.
