When backup point guard Jamaal Tinsley entered Saturday night’s game, two Bulls fans sitting next to press row at the United Center couldn’t believe it.
“Has he been with the Jazz the whole season?” one fan asked.
Yes, indeed. Ever since Utah rescued him from the D-League. He was the No. 1 pick last year after sitting out a season, so there is that.
Just don’t check the Jazz’s statistics for verification. He doesn’t play much. In fact, Tinsley has logged more than 10 minutes only twice this season — Saturday at Chicago, and back on Feb. 2 at Golden State.
