Collin Sexton was liberated by a role adjustment in the Jazz's triumph over the Grizzlies.

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Collin Sexton may be found wandering into the Utah Jazz practice facility in the early hours of game day.

It's been his habit since he first arrived in the league. He's in the gym by 7 a.m., drilling, shooting, and preparing for what's to come later.

All of that hard training, all of those hours in the gym, gave him the sensation that things were about to chang

He had shot 41% from the field and 22% from 3-point range in four games, and the Jazz had a 1-3 record.

Sexton had 23 points and six assists in Utah's 133-109 triumph over the Memphis Grizzlies at the Delta Center on Wednesday. But the guard's actions on Wednesday were not easy.

"He got on to me a little bit," Sexton said with a smirk. "He knows that the time and the work I put in … shooting the same shot, so just trust it."

"Just different ones," Hardy said of Sexton's possibilities.  If Wednesday is any indicator, they will be more effective in helping the team win.

"When he's going 100 miles per hour with the ball, it makes it difficult for everyone else to know where to go." So, if you've got him running 100 mph, someone else can set the table and let him eat."
