It’s been a tough year for the Utah Jazz.

The Jazz are in the midst of an east coast road trip. They are currently in the nation’s capital taking on the Washington Wizards.

Although they have some promising young players like rookie point guard Trey Burke, who was College Basketball’s Player of the Year at Michigan last season and a couple of former big men picked in the lottery in Derrick Favors and Enes Kanter, they have posted a record of 21-39.

However, there have been highlights outside of those players.

One came as the first quarter was running down in Wednesday night’s game.

Former Slam Dunk Champion Jeremy Evans got the ball on an in bounds passed and put a desperation shot that was true.
