Conley generated 13 points (4-12 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven assists, six rebounds and one steal in 34 minutes Monday in the Jazz's 101-92 loss to the Raptors. Conley hit only a third of his shots from the field for the second straight game, but he was at least able to fill out the stat sheet nicely to make up for the rough shooting night. Though he's been a major disappointment for his fantasy managers this season, Conley's production has at least been trending up since the All-Star break. Through nine second-half outings, he's averaging 14.9 points, 5.0 assists, 3.3 boards, 2.6 triples and 1.0 steal while shooting 45.3 percent from the field and 88.2 percent from the line.
Conley registered 25 points (9-16 FG, 6-10 3Pt, 1-1 FT), five assists, three rebounds and three steals in 34 minutes during Friday's 99-94 win at Boston. Conley seems to be trending in the right direction after notching double-digit scoring figures in six of his last seven contests after a three-game absence last month. He has settled as Utah's starting point guard and his numbers are solid -- 17.3 points, 4.8 assists and 45.6 percent from three-point range in his last 11 games since moving to the starting unit.
Conley amassed 17 points (6-9 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 3-4 FT), six assists and two rebounds in 27 minutes during Wednesday's 112-104 win over the Knicks. Conley has scored 15 or more in four straight games and has dished exactly six dimes in three straight. It has undoubtedly been a rough season for the 32-year-old veteran, but he has strung together several solid showings across the last week. Conley will try to keep this recent streak of strong play alive during Friday's matchup versus the Celtics.
Contrary to an earlier report, Conley will remain in Utah's starting lineup, Tony Jones of The Athletic reports. It turns out Conley will stick in the starting five while Joe Ingles moves to a bench role in favor of Royce O'Neale. The veteran Conley has started 28 of his 34 appearances this season, averaging 14.3 points, 3.6 rebounds and 4.6 assists in 29.7 minutes in those contests.
Conley has been pulled from Utah's starting five and will be replaced by Royce O'Neale, Shams Charania and Tony Jones of The Athletic report. Jazz coaches believe that O'Neale's defensive presence works best in the starting five, with the move also allowing Joe Ingles to take on a bigger role in the offense. The decision is one that reflects how poorly Conley's fit has been with the Jazz thus far. He's shooting just 39.4 percent from the field, and the team has been 4.1 points per 100 possessions better with him off the court. Conley is still expected to retain a significant role in the offense, helping run the second unit.
