SALT LAKE CITY — Joe Ingles, all the time.
That kind of turned out to be the theme of Tuesday.
Hours before the Utah Jazz visited Barclays Center to take on the Brooklyn Nets, an ESPN podcast featuring the charismatic Ingles and NBA expert Zach Lowe hit the airwaves. Topics included the surging Jazz, his trash-talking boundaries and expertise and the Australian wildfires, among others.

(Lowe was also interviewed by the Utah Jazz social media team while the squad was in New York.)
This Ingles-centric intriguing statistic was also revealed.
Since Dec 1, there are 111 players who have attempted at least 75 threes.
110 of those players are shooting below 46.8 3P%.

And, yeah, Ingles also dropped six 3-pointers and matched his career-high with 27 points to help the Jazz win their 10th straight game.
“As silly as it sounds, I think we’ve still got a lot to improve on,” Ingles said after the win. ”I think we have breakdowns — that one in the third quarter, I think we can stop that a lot earlier. Offensively we get a little muddled up sometimes. Obviously we’re on the right track and it’s fun to play at the moment.”
