On Saturday, April 10th the Sacramento Kings and Utah Jazz will compete for the first time this season.
The Jazz holds the all-time record between the clubs with 110 wins in 194 meetings. Last season, the teams played three times with Utah winning two of the three contests.
Just as the Kings looked like they’d turned a corner stringing together five wins in a row they return to the mean and dropped their next five games.
Raptors This team is one of the most confounding in the association given they don’t seem to play to a specific identity. When they are rolling they look like a club that feasts in the fast break and hot perimeter shooting.
But, when they are struggling there is no semblance of defense and the offense gets stuck. During the losing streak, they lost by one point to the Bucks but then dropped winnable games against lottery clubs like the Wolves and Pistons.
The most recent loss occurred against the Pistons (101-113). In that match, the Kings got stung by a former player as Cory Joseph dropped 24 points against them along with four rebounds, seven assists, a steal, and a block.
His former backcourt mate De’Aaron Fox countered with 23 points, nine rebounds, seven assists, and two steals but didn’t have much assistance.
Richaun Holmes and Buddy Hield each scored 15, Harrison Barnes chipped in 13 points while Hassan Whiteside was the other double-figure scorer with 10 points.
Sacramento had no excuses as they entered the match on two days rest (an eternity in the current jam-packed second-half schedules) but were outrebounded and allowed Detroit to score 68 points in the paint and build a 22 point lead at one point in the match.
Marvin Bagley is out with a hand injury that requires him to stay off the court for a month to heal.
The week began on a tough note with the Jazz nine-game winning streak coming to an end. What made it particularly bad was the two losses that came against Western Conference opponents vying to usurp them in the West.
First, the red hot Mavericks beat them, and then the Suns beat them in overtime. But, like they’ve done all season Utah got back on track to remain one of the few squads to not lose more than two games in a row this season.
It wasn’t an easy task given they were playing in the second night of a back-to-back set and facing another hot and charging Western club — the Blazers.
Donovan Mitchell led the charge for Utah and offered evidence his name deserves to be in the mix for Most Valuable Player. The Jazz guard scored 37 points despite shooting 1 of 8 from deep.
Rudy Gobert delivered a massive double-double of 18 points and 21 rebounds.
Jordan Clarkson (ankle) and Juwan Morgan (calf) missed the game Thursday and are listed as day-to-day. Udoka Azubuike has missed 33 games with a severe ankle sprain and is out indefinitely.
NBA Betting Trends:
- The Jazz are 8-2 in the last 10 head-to-head meetings.
- The Jazz are 5-4-1 ATS in the last 10 meetings between these clubs
- The over/under is 6-4 in the last 10 contests between the clubs
Free Sacramento Kings vs. Utah Jazz NBA Prediction:
After allowing the Pistons to feast in the paint Rudy Gobert must be licking his lips at the prospect of facing the Kings.
