|Juancho Hernangomez: Scores 14 points as starter|
Hernangomez amassed 14 points (5-9 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 0-2 FT), five rebounds and one assist across 28 minutes during Friday's 107-101 loss to the Hornets.
The Scoop: Hernangomez was back in the starting lineup Friday after playing just five minutes off the bench during Wednesday's blowout loss to the Celtics. The sixth-year big man made the most of his opportunity by registering season highs in made field goals, made three-pointers, points and minutes played. Across his last six starts, he's averaged 5.2 points and 3.8 rebounds in 20.7 minutes per game. As long as Bojan Bogdanovic (calf) remains sidelined, expect Hernangomez to continue being a key part of Utah's rotation.
