Ingles scored 19 points (7-12 FG, 5-9 3Pt) while adding three rebounds, two assists, two steals and a block in 27 minutes during Saturday's 96-87 win over the Thunder.
He's taken full advantage of Rodney Hood's absences due to illness and a strained calf so far, draining 12 treys through three games. Ingles will likely see his looks and usage decline once Hood is 100 percent, but his spot in the starting five seems secure and a career year will almost certainly be the result for the 30-year-old.
Ingles accumulated 14 points (5-8 FG, 4-5 3Pt), three rebounds, three assists and two steals across 34 minutes during Friday's 100-97 loss to the Timberwolves.
Ingles has begun the season by drilling seven threes and recording four steals over the course of two games -- impressive marks. Despite seeing just 24.0 minutes per game last year, those categories were two of his main strengths, as he recorded 1.5 threes and 1.2 steals in 2016-17.
Ingles went tallied three points (1-3 FG, 1-1 3Pt), four assists, three rebounds and one steal across 29 minutes in Tuesday's 105-99 preseason win over the Lakers.
Ingles was disappointingly uninvolved during a fairly extensive amount of time on the court, even with Rodney Hood (neck) playing only four minutes before exiting. Ingles put up between three and five shot attempts in four of five exhibitions, leading to a quartet of single-digit point totals and an underwhelming body of work. As the projected starting two-guard to open the season, Ingles' lack of production in preseason has to be a concern. He's certainly shown the ability to get hot from long distance in the past, so the Jazz will have to hope the light will come on beginning with next Wednesday's regular-season opener against the Nuggets.
Ingles managed just one point (0-5 FG, 0-5 3Pt, 1-2 FT), four rebounds, one assist and one steal across 23 minutes in Friday's 112-101 preseason win over the Suns.
The 30-year-old came up empty from the field, a disappointing development considering he'd gone a solid 6-for-13 over his first two exhibitions combined. Ingles is expected to start at either shooting guard or small forward in the coming season, but he'll need to demonstrate the ability to consistently contribute on offense as a member of the first team. Ingles has certainly had his moments over his first three seasons while usually coming off the bench, and he posted career bests in points (7.1), rebounds (3.2), assists (2.7), steals (1.2), shooting percentage (45.2) and three-point shooting percentage (44.1) last season. If he can carry over and build on those improvements while handling a starter's workload, the fourth-year swingman will certainly keep the Jazz and fantasy owners very pleased.
Ingles started at small forward in Wednesday's game against Haifa Maccabi and contributed 12 points (4-8 FG, 2-5 3PT, 2-3 FT), four assists and two rebounds in 20 minutes of action.
Ingles has started each of the Jazz's first two preseason contests, suggesting that he'll slide into the wing position vacated by the departure of Gordon Hayward. The Australian import was more of a role player last season, but he was one of the more efficient three-point shooters in the league, knocking down 1.5 threes per game at better than a 44 percent clip.
