Jazz Gaming was a squad who’s final regular season record didn’t tell the entire story of their season. Utah was a talented team who showed flashes of promise but ultimately struggled to find any consistency which resulted in their 5-9 regular season record. A well-rounded squad, they were led offensively by talented big man Mr.Slaughter01 who averaged 19.4 points and 8.5 rebounds to go with 1.6 blocks per contest. First round pick and floor general Yeah I Compete finished the season averaging a double-double with 18.9 points and 10.6 assists per game.
Returning for the 2019 season will be last season’s No. 3 overall pick Yeah I Compete and versatile swing-man Deedz, who averaged a strong 10.5 points, 6.2 rebounds and 2.6 assists per contest.
