Ingles sizzles in season-opening Utah win


//

Joe Ingles has enjoyed an excellent start to his 2018-19 NBA season by putting on a sparkling shooting display in a tight Utah Jazz win. 

The Jazz were pushed early by a spirited young Sacramento Kings side but came away with a hard-fought 123-117 win courtesy of 22 points from the Australian as well as 24 points from second-year guard Donovan Mitchell. 

Ingles was red-hot from the field, finishing with 9-for-12 shooting on the night including a remarkable 4-for-6 from three-point range to go along with six assists and four steals. 

The 31-year-old Australian also set a Utah Jazz record with his four made three-pointers the most ever by a Utah player on the opening night of the season.

Fifth-year Australian guard Dante Exum also provided excellent minutes for Jazz coach Qun Snyder off the bench, finishing with 13 points, four rebounds and four assists in 26 action-packed minutes, as the Jazz outscored the Kings by 21 points while Exum was on the court. 

Elsewhere in the league, Australian Ryan Broekhoff set a record on his debut for the Dallas Mavericks, becoming the fastest Australian to score in the NBA, as he canned a three-pointer just 47 seconds into his debut against the Phoenix Suns.

Veteran point guard Patty Mills also enjoyed a winning start to his NBA season, as the San Antonio Spurs survived a thriller against the Minnesota Timberwolves to prevail 112-108 winners at the AT&T Center. 

Mills provided his usual spark off the bench for a new-look Spurs outfit, playing without all of Manu Ginobili, Tony Parker and Tim Duncan for the first time since the 1997-98 season, draining two three-pointers in his 30 minutes of action. 

However, despite a busy night of Australian action, fans were left thrilled by the performance of Ingles, who built on a strong post-season showing with his opening night barrage.
