Utah is on the cusp and they have to start winning the games like this one if they want to progress.
When I say this one I mean not at full strength and against a weak opponent.
The Jazz are trying to get over the hump this season but it hasn’t been easy.
They have pushed the best teams in the league on multiple occasions but they have been coming up short
This is a game where they can show their development by beating a team they are supposed to. Though the number doesn’t position it that way.
I think that is primarily because the Jazz will be without center Rudy Gobert. He is a difference maker, especially on defense.
Without Gobert they definitely play smaller but they are going to have to defend Demarcus Cousins somehow.
They are the better team overall and if they can overcome missing their big center it will probably help in their team development.
The Kings are doing their usual stumbling this season, they have just one win in their last six games.
Another thing we have come to expect is the dominance of Cousins who is averaging 25/10 and is one of the toughest covers in the league when he is on the court.
Sacramento has also gotten Rajon Rondo back on track. He is posting more than 10 assists per game and his 12ppg would be the second best of his career.
It is a bad sign though that Marco Bellinelli is outscoring Ben McLemore who is quickly developing into one of the all time busts.
Look for the Kings to really emphasize Cousins tonight. They would be stupid not to but that doesn’t always mean it will happen with this group. The advantage is there for scoring and because Cousins is a willing passer too.
This will be only the fifth time the Kings have been a favourite this season – they are 3-1 SU and 2-2 ATS in those situations.

This is a tough call. Are the Jazz good enough and strong enough to win under less than ideal circumstances?

I love Boogie but backing the Kings is a nerve wracking proposition. Take the Jazz and the points on the road in this one.
