Neto battled several injuries on his way to playing 37 games with the Jazz during the 2018-19 campaign. However, his 12.8 minutes per contest were his highest since his 2015-16 rookie season. Neto's season debut came Nov. 19, and he posted his first double-digit scoring game Nov. 28, recording a season-high 11 points against the Nets. He recorded seven double-digit scoring games on the season, scoring exactly 10 points in six of those seven contests. The 6-foot-1 guard averaged 5.3 points and 1.7 rebounds. He also set new career highs by shooting 46.0 percent from the field and collecting 2.5 assists per game. Neto was gathering momentum in early January with back-to-back 10-point games before missing nearly a month with a groin injury. After that, he averaged 5.7 points and 3.1 assists in his final 18 games. He appeared in three postseason contests.2017
Neto's playing time was limited for a second straight year in 2017-18, as he missed a good portion of the season due to both a fractured wrist and a concussion. All told, he suited up in 41 games for the Jazz. Despite the missed contests, Neto once again displayed an ability to contribute in a variety of areas even in limited court time. Over the course of just 12.1 minutes per game, Neto posted averages of 4.5 points, 1.2 rebounds and 1.8 assists -- good for per-36 averages of 13. points, 5.4 assists and 3.5 rebounds. He also proved to be one of the NBA's best three-point shooters, hitting on 40.4 percent of his attempts. Neto's best performance of the season came against Brooklyn on Nov. 17. In that game, Neto poured in a career-high 22 points. He drained 9-of-14 shots from the field, including going 3-for-6 from downtown, while adding three rebounds, an assist, a steal, and a block for good measure. Neto also saw playing time in eight of the Jazz's 11 playoff games, including all five games of their Western Conference Semifinal loss to Houston.2016
Neto appeared in 40 games off the bench for the Jazz during the 2016-17 regular season. The sophomore point guard averaged 2.5 points, 0.8 rebounds and 0.9 assists per contest as a reserve, averaging 8.7 minutes per tilt. Neto scored a season-high 10 points against the Knicks on Mar. 22 by making all four of his shots, including a pair of 3-pointers. He snared a season-high four rebounds against Sacramento on Dec. 10 and dished out a season-best four dimes Mar. 25 against the Clippers. Neto appeared in nine playoff games for the Jazz, scoring in six of those outings.2015
Neto arrived stateside in 2015-16 after several years of playing professional ball in Spain and immediately filled a valuable role for the Jazz. His ability to produce immediately should come as no surprise, given that Neto, at age 23, is older than your average NBA freshman. Neto saw action in 81 of 82 regular-season games, including 53 starts. He proved to be a reliable, past-first point guard option. The Brazilian averaged 5.9 points, 1.5 rebounds and 2.1 assists despite playing just 18.5 minutes per night. His turnover numbers (1.3 per game) were strong and he hit 74.3 percent of his free throws. Defensively, Neto excelled in the steals department. He averaged 0.8 thefts per game and racked up at least three steals on five separate occasions. Neto's best all-around performance of the season was a 13-point, five-assist, three-steal effort against Miami on Jan. 9.
