Jazz and Kings about to start.
Jazz record last time they were in Sacramento 17-26
Willie Cauley-Stein is out tonight for the Kings
Biggest things to watch for Jazz is shots in the restricted area (had a season high 35 last night) and above the break 3. Jazz struggling 23 of last 92
Buddy Hield of the Kings has the biggest discrepancy between catch and shoot v. off the bounce 3 point shooting. On catch and shoot he is one of the best in the NBA at 53% and off the bounce just 29%
Jazz lead it 20-13. Jazz with 5 field goals in the restricted area and the Kings with 0. Rudy Gobert impacts every play.
Time and time again the Kings are driving to the basket and curling away from Gobert. All 5 Jazz starters have scored
Jazz on a 13-4 run to close the quarter. Kings went from 6:02 mark to .07.6 left in the quarter without a field goal.
Kings didn’t take a shot in the restricted area with Gobert in the game. Favors has 6 pts as does Crowder. Jazz up 25-17 after 1
I don’t believe the Kings have taken a shot in the restricted area with Rudy Gobert on the floor. Kings have 6 points in the paint on 3 of 15 shooting. Gobert is dominating this game with his existence. Jazz 40-25
Kings close the 1st half on a 14-7 run yet the Jazz still leads it 52-43 at the half. Donovan Mitchell 14 points and Jae Crowder 12 points. Jazz defensive rating in the 1st half is 89
Jazz lead it 75-66 after an 18 point lead disappears with the Kings closing on a 9-2 run. Kings really picked up the defensive effort late. @bigTbailey said Jazz need better shot selection early in the 4th
Derrick Favors is just a beast around the basket. Tweeted earlier today about his rim finishing at over 82% since middle of January. He has 15 points and 8 rebounds and is 7 of 10 shooting plus a three.
Kings haven’t been within 7 points since 25-20 in the 2nd quarter. Jazz controlled this game without much flair. 92-79
Donovan Mitchell has 25 points for the 21st time in his first 60 games. Since 1992 the only players to exceed that are Shaq and Iverson
Jazz win it. 98-91. Never threatened. Donovan Mitchell finished with 27 points, The Wasatch Front (Gobert and Favors) combine for 31 points and 20 rebounds
