SALT LAKE CITY, Utah –Jazzguard Mike Conley knocked down a three-point pointer for Utah’s first points of the 2021-22 NBA season.

The Jazz hosted the Oklahoma City Thunder at Vivint Arena on Wednesday, October 20.

48 seconds into Utah’s season opener and on the team’s second offensive possession, Jazzman Bojan Bogdanovic gave the ball to Conley.

Standing beyond the arc at the near angle, the veteran goaltender went wild during a 29-foot attempt that found the back of the net.

Conley’s bucket gave the Jazz a 3-2 lead early on.

Last season, Conley was named the NBA All-Star for the first time in his career. He averaged 16.2 points out of 44.4% shooting, including 41.2% from a distance. Conley also recorded 3.5 rebounds, 6.0 assists and 1.4 steals per game.

The Thunder vs. Jazz is televised on AT&T Sports Net and NBA League Pass. Streaming is available on DirecTV Stream and fuboTV. Fans can stream the game on The Zone Sports Network (97.5 FM & 1280 AM) and KSL NewsRadio (102.7 FM & 1160 AM).
