Utah Jazz rookie Ochai Agbaji had another productive appearance on assignment in the NBA G League on Tuesday to help the Salt Lake City Stars to a win at home.

Agbaji recorded 19 points, four rebounds, three assists and one steal in a 128-97 victory over the Santa Cruz Warriors. He scored 11 points alone in the first half and went 7-of-17 from the field, including 3-of-8 from 3-point range, in 36 minutes of work.

The 14th pick put up his third straight game with at least 18 points with the performance. He managed to drop in some 3s and got into the paint often and had a number of strong finishes at the rim.

Agbaji is now averaging 14.2 points, 3.7 rebounds, 1.7 assists and one steal in six games with Salt Lake City. He has had some good moments on the court so far and will have the opportunity to continue to develop with playing time at a minimum with the Jazz.

He has made six appearances with the Jazz so far but hasnโ€™t played much during the month of November. The G League will serve as a great chance to get consistent playing time and stay sharp as he makes the transition from college to the NBA.

The Stars return to action on Friday versus the OKC Blue.
