SALT LAKE CITY — The Utah Jazz’s two representatives acquitted themselves well enough in their first career NBA All-Star Game on Sunday night, although their side came up just short as Team LeBron beat Team Giannis in dramatic fashion, 157-155.

The “Elam Ending” was instituted for the game, and the target score was 157, which Los Angeles Lakers big man Anthony Davis reached for Team LeBron on a free throw. It was an anticlimactic finish for what was a dramatic fourth quarter.

Jazz center Rudy Gobert was tremendous for Team Giannis, as he finished with 21 points, 11 rebounds, two assists and a block in 19 minutes. His Utah teammate, Donovan Mitchell, scored seven points with five rebounds, four assists, two steals and a block in 14 minutes.

Fifty-four games into the Jazz’s season, now at the All-Star break, with 28 yet to play, the questions emerge: Who are these guys? How good are they? Are they what they were expected to be?

If they are what their record says they are, at 36-18, they are twice as likely to win as they are to lose. That may not be statistically sound reasoning, but, either way, they have shown both a propensity and an ability to stumble and bumble, then learn and fight back, then fumble, then climb back again.
