The Kings have lost 3 of their last 4 games and they lost a heartbreaker last night where DeMarcus Cousins nearly hit a 55-footer to tie the game in a 3-point loss to the New York Knicks.
The Jazz had their 3-game win streak snapped in their last game. Still, they have won seven of their last 10 games and they sit in 7th place in the Western Conference.
In their last games the Kings lost to the New York Knicks 103-100 and the Jazz lost to the Golden State Warriors 106-99.
The Kings rank 19th in the league in points per game and 16th in opponents’ points per game.
In the loss to the Knicks the Kings played pretty good defense holding New York to 42.9% shooting, but they only shot 40.2% from the floor.
Sacto dominated inside scoring 50 points in the paint, but they were cold from deep only hitting on 7 of their 28 3-pointers.
DeMarco Cousins had his 12th double-double of the season, and 2nd in a row, with 28 points and 12 boards even though he was only 9/25 from the floor. Rudy Gay had a tough night only going for 13 points and was only 4/15 from the field and he missed all 5 of his 3-pointers.
The Jazz need to key on Cousins and Gay, who are the 2 leading scorers for the Kings and are combining to average 47.8 ppg.
Gay is the 2nd leading scorer at 19 ppg, but in his last 9 games he has only averaged 16.1 ppg on 42.4% shooting.
This is the Kings first match up with the Jazz this season.
The Kings are 4-8 on the road this season.
The Jazz only rank 24th in the league in points per game, but 1st in opponents’ points per game.
In the loss to the Warriors in their last game the Jazz shot only 41.6% from the floor and allowed the Warriors to shoot 48.8%. The Jazz were outscored by 17 points in the 1st quarter and they need to get off to a better start in this game.
Jazz C Rudy Gobert has two straight double-doubles and in the loss to the Warriors he went for 20 points and grabbed 17 boards. His defense will be key tonight facing Cousins.
Gordon Hayward (23.1 ppg) is the leading scorer for the Jazz and he missed the Golden State game with a finger injury. He is listed as probable for this game.
The Jazz could use him in the lineup for this game, as 2nd leading scorer George Hill (20 ppg) is out with a toe injury.
The Jazz are 23-9-2 ATS in their last 34 home games facing the Kings. However, the road team is 3-1-1 ATS in the last 5 games between these teams.
This season the Jazz are 7-5 at home.
