This season opener features the Utah Jazz taking on the Sacramento Kings in a Western Conference showdown. The Jazz managed to make the playoffs last year, while the Kings are in the middle of a rebuild.
These two teams met three times last year, with the Jazz winning all three games.
The Jazz finished last season with a record of 48-34. They were the 5th seed in the Western Conference Playoffs. They defeated the Oklahoma City Thunder in the first round 4 games to 2.
They ended up losing to the Houston Rockets 4 games to 1 in the second round, but nonetheless had a great season.
Donovan Mitchell emerged as a potential superstar for the Jazz last season. He led them to the second round of the playoffs and was one of the best rookies of 2017-2018 by far. Mitchell averaged 20.5 points per game last season and is poised to improve on that number as he enters his sophomore season.
The Jazz selected Grayson Allen out of Duke University with the 21st overall pick of the NBA Draft. Allen had a great career at Duke, but it is yet to be determined how effective he will be against NBA talent. If Allen develops how the Jazz are hoping, they could have another solid year.
The Kings were very poor last season and finished with an overall record of 27-55. They were 12th in the Western Conference.
The Kings leading score last year was Zach Rudolph, who had 14.5 points per game. If the kings are going to have any success this year, one of their younger players will need to step up and take over as the leading scorer.
They were lucky enough to win the 2nd overall pick of the 2018 NBA Draft and selected Marvin Bagley III.
Bagley is a power forward out of Duke University and will be the first step towards the Kings making it back to the playoffs.
