Conley registered 14 points (6-13 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 0-4 FT), three rebounds, eight assists and a steal across 31 minutes in Sunday's win at Denver.
Conley ended just two assists shy of a double-double for the second game in a row, and he also extended his streak of games with at least 10 points to five contests in a row. He only has one double-double this season, but Conley has been effective as a secondary scorer and a primary playmaker at the same time -- he is averaging 16.8 points and 6.0 assists per game.
Conley posted 15 points (5-10 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 3-4 FT), four rebounds, eight assists and four steals across 27 minutes in Friday's win over the Hawks.
Conley has scored in double digits in each of his last four contests while dishing out five or more assists in each game as well. The veteran point guard continues to deliver as Donovan Mitchell's partner in the backcourt and, while he's focused more on being the team's main playmaker, he is still averaging 17.1 points, 5.8 assists, 4.3 rebounds and 1.3 steals per game in 2020-21. That's a marked increase compared to what he did in the 2019-20 season, his first as a member of the Jazz.
Conley amassed 22 points (8-13 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 4-4 FT), six assists, five rebounds and two steals in 30 minutes during Sunday's 96-86 victory over the Pistons.
Conley continues to chug along at top-60 speed, rewarding those who were able to nab him in the later rounds of drafts. He is a great plug-and-play option right now. As long as he can avoid injuries, Conley should be able to maintain this kind of production moving forward.
Conley posted 17 points (6-12 FG, 5-10 3Pt), 10 assists and three rebounds over 29 minutes in the 131-118 win over the Bucks.
After scoring a combined 17 points over his last two games, Conley was able get back on track. The 10 assists mark the first time Conley has hit double-digit assists since March of 2019. After starting the season having played in 30 minutes in five consecutive games, Conley has failed to reach that plateau in four straight games.
Conley tallied eight points (3-10 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 0-2 FT), five assists, three rebounds and a steal during Tuesday's 130-96 loss against the Nets.
Conley failed to shoot above 33.3 percent in each of the four quarters he played. The performance was clearly underwhelming, but it is an outlier for him. Conley is still averaging 18.6 points while shooting 46.4 percent from the field and 45.3 percent from three-point range; both of those percentages exceed his career-high marks.
Conley totaled 33 points (11-20 FG, 7-14 3Pt, 4-4 FT), seven assists, two rebounds and one steal over 34 minutes in Friday's 106-100 win over the Clippers.
Conley has played at least 30 minutes in each of the first five games of the season, and he led the Jazz in scoring with 33 points, his highest scoring total since joining the team last year. The 33-year-old has been an offensive force for Utah recently, posting at least 20 points in three of the last four contests.
Conley posted 20 points (8-15 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 10 rebounds, nine assists, a steal and a blocked shot across 32 minutes in Monday's 110-109 win over the Thunder.
Not only was it Conley's first double-double with the Jazz, but he also came one assist short of the hat trick. It's taken a couple of games for Conley to warm up, a trait that he mimicked last season as he settled in with his new team. He enters his second season in Salt Lake City with a firmer hand on the offense, and he has a vast array of weapons at his disposal as the Jazz's defacto floor general.
Conley produced 20 points (6-13 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 6-8 FT), six rebounds, four assists and a steal across 34 minutes in Saturday's 116-111 loss to the Timberwolves.
Although the Jazz were on the losing end of this matchup, Conley had a decent game. He didn't play well at all throughout the preseason and only collected two assists in the season opener.
Conley will not play in Saturday's preseason opener against the Suns for rest purposes.
No surprise here, as Conley just cleared quarantine and returned to practice Tuesday. Look for the Jazz to ease their veteran starting point guard back into the swing of things before the regular season tips off.
Conley (not injury related) went through Tuesday's practice, Tony Jones of The Athletic reports.
Conley had close contact with a person who tested positive for COVID-19, so he missed practice time. However, he joined the team Tuesday and will presumably be available for Utah's first preseason game, which is Saturday against the Suns.
Coach Quin Synder intimated that his preference to rest players will be to sit them out entirely rather than try to manage their minutes, Eric Walden of The Salt Lake Tribune reports. Given Conley's (COVID-19 protocol) age of 33, there's a strong chance he'll have rest days.
Conley, Joe Ingles and Bojan Bogdanovic are the three players on the Jazz older than 30, so we could see rest days for that trio. At the same time, Conley will be looking to have a bounceback season after the early portion of his 2019-20 campaign was a disaster. He picked things up at the end of the year, though, and across his final 12 appearances, he averaged 17.2 points on 45/40/95 shooting, 5.3 assists, 3.1 rebounds and 1.1 steals.
Conley was not at practice Friday after having close contact with person who tested positive for COVID-19, Eric Walden of The Salt Lake Tribune reports.
Conley will remain sidelined until it is established that he has not also contracted the virus. The veteran guard said he expects to be quarantined through Monday as long as he continues to test negative. His status for the preseason, which begins Dec. 12 for Utah, will depend on continued negative tests.
Conley will not exercise the early termination option in his contract for the 2020-21 season, Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports reports.
This is all but a formality for Conley, who by opting in will guarantee himself the $34.5 million on his contract for next season. The veteran guard had a disappointing first year in Utah, but he found some level of comfortability late in the season, and the hope is that he'll serve as a more productive complement to Donovan Mitchell in 2020-21. Conley finished last season with averages of 14.4 points, 4.4 assists, 3.2 rebounds and 0.8 steals in 47 games.
Conley amassed just eight points (2-13 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 3-4 FT), seven assists, four rebounds and three steals in 40 minutes during Monday's 80-78 loss to Denver.
Conley picked a bad time to go cold from the floor, bumbling his way to eight points in the Game 7 loss. Despite this effort, Conley has certainly looked better during his time in Orlando. After an indifferent season in Utah, Conley was beginning to look more like the player we had come to expect. It will be interesting to see if he can maintain things heading into next season or whether another decline is on the cards.
Conley produced 21 points (7-13 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 3-4 FT), six assists, five rebounds and a steal across 34 minutes in Sunday's 119-107 loss to the Nuggets.
Despite an excellent outing, Conley's most poignant moment occurred when Rudy Gobert scolded him for blowing a defensive assignment in the fourth quarter, and it resulted in a chair-kicking tantrum from the center. Despite that brief disruption, Conley hit some pivotal three-pointers down the stretch that kept the Jazz within striking distance. He also excelled in getting the ball to playmakers throughout the contest. He'll continue to direct the offense alongside Donovan Mitchell during Tuesday's Game 7 battle.
Conley registered 17 points (5-12 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 5-6 FT), five assists, four rebounds, a steal and a block in 35 minutes during Tuesday's 117-107 Game 5 loss against the Nuggets.
Conley topped the 25-point plateau in his first two games in the playoffs, but he couldn't repeat that performance in Game 5 after struggling from the field. He only made five shots and connected on 33.3 percent of his treys. The veteran point guard will hope to deliver a better scoring effort in Game 6 on Thursday.
Conley (personal) finished with 27 points (9-13 FG, 7-8 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four assists and a steal in 25 minutes during Friday's 124-87 Game 3 win against the Nuggets.
Conley returned to the lineup after missing the first two playoff games to be with his wife for the birth of their child, and he didn't miss a beat. In fact, Conley ended up with more points than minutes while sinking a playoff career-high seven threes. Moreover, he didn't need to log a ton of minutes, given that the game was well in hand entering the fourth quarter. Conley will look to build on this superb performance in Sunday's Game 4.
Conley (personal) is clearing quarantine and will play in Game 3 Friday against the Nuggets, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
The 32-year-old missed the first two games of the series because he left the bubble last weekend to be with his wife for the birth of their child, but he'll be back with the team for Game 3. Conley figures to reclaim his spot in the starting five from Juwan Morgan.
Conley (personal) is considered probable for Friday's Game 3 against the Nuggets, Marc Stein of the New York Times reports.
This is a major development for the Jazz, who were without Conley for Games 1 and 2 after he departed the bubble to be with his wife following the birth of the couple's child. Conley returned to Orlando on Tuesday morning and looks to be on track to clear his mandatory quarantine period prior to Friday's tip. The veteran will likely return to the starting lineup, which featured Juwan Morgan in his place for Games 1 and 2.
Conley (personal) returned to the Orlando bubble on Tuesday, Andy Larsen of the Salt Lake Tribune reports.
Conley departed the bubble last week to be with his wife after the birth of their child, but he made his return Tuesday and will begin a mandatory quarantine period. It's not yet clear how long Conley will be required to self-isolate, but he'll miss at least Game 2 of the Jazz's series with the Nuggets on Wednesday. Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN notes that there's optimism that Conley could be cleared in time for Game 3.
