Brantley tallied 20 points (8-12 FG, 1-4 3PT, 2-2 FT) in Saturday's win over Northern Arizona. Brantley logged four scoreless minutes in a brief NBA appearance with the Jazz on Wednesday but returned to Salt Lake City in time to lead the Stars in scoring Saturday. The second-round pick has scored in double digits in his last eight G League contests and is averaging 17.4 points per game with the Stars this season.
Brantley was recalled from the G League on Wednesday, Andy Larsen of KSL.com reports. With Juwan Morgan (knee) out for Wednesday's contest, Brantley was transferred to the Jazz to fill out the roster. The rookie dropped 20 points in his latest G League game against Grand Rapids on Monday.
Brantley tied for the team lead with 20 points (8-14 FG, 2-5 3PT, 2-2 FT) in Monday's win over Grand Rapids. Brantley has now scored 20-plus points in three-straight games after topping out at 19 through his first four contests. The two-way player has struggled from behind the arc this season -- he has knocked down only 28.1 percent of his three-point attempts -- but has otherwise fared well from the field, making 53.9 percent of his field-goal attempts overall.
Brantley racked up 31 points (12-19 FG, 1-4 3PT, 4-6 FT) and grabbed eight rebounds in a win over Rio Grande on Tuesday. Brantley's point total established a season high, eclipsing the 21-point mark he set in his previous game. Importantly, Brantley's scoring has been efficient this season as he has converted 53.3 percent of his field goal attempts through six G League games. The second-round pick is on a two-way contract and should spend most of his time with Salt Lake this season, but continued strong play could earn him a trip back to Utah if the Jazz find themselves in need of a forward.
Brantley scored 21 points (6-11 FG, 3-6 3PT, 4-7 FT) and grabbed 13 rebounds while dishing out seven assists in a win over Austin on Sunday. Brantley was on the court for a team-leading 41 minutes in the victory and came within three assists of registering his first triple-double. As it is, the double-double was the first of the second-round pick's G League career and his scoring, rebound and assist totals were each single-game highs.
