Slow start for the Utah Jazz. Kings are getting good looks and jamming up the Jazz pick and roll game. Kings lead it 15-8 with 7:31 left in the 1st quarter. Bogdanovic with 6 points for the Kings

Jazz close the quarter on a 22-9 run. Mitchell with 9 and Favors with 5 points, 3 rebounds and the Jazz lead the Kings 32-27 at end of 1st quarter Jazz have not put down the defensive clamps yet Kings off rtg is 120

With the New Orleans lost to the Rockets the Jazz are now in 6th in the Western Conference. This lead @bigTbailey signing the Jefferson’s theme on the radio

Kings are on a 16-3 run and lead the Jazz 40-35. Kings are sending the big in a trap on the pick and roll and then rotating to the rolling big. This leaves shooters open and Jazz aren’t finding them yet. Jazz are 2 of 9 on threes and Kings are 30th in NBA in 3 defense

Adam Silver on with @kristenkenney on @ATTSportsNetRM says “we will be back in Utah” when talking about the All-Star game. Would not say when. Silver was very impressed with renovations and Miller family commitment

Joe Ingles 3 ties him with Randy Foye for most 3 pointers in a single season by a member of the Utah Jazz. Joe also leads the NBA in 3 point shooting at 45.1% Opponents had been super cold from 3 shooting 29.8% over last 8 games. Tonight regression to the mean is a bad thing. Kings are 8 of 11 from 3

Jazz regain the lead 63-59. Donovan with a great drive and then a no looker to Favors for a dunk to spur on the Jazz.

Game was tied at 63 when the Jazz went to Rubio, Mitchell, Ingles, Crowder and Gobert and immediately went on a 9-0 run. Lead is now down to 4 76-72 with 2:56 left in the 3rd

One thing to keep an eye on is Jazz are struggling on offense with Dante Exum on the floor. They are 12 of 33 shooting when he has been on the floor. Need a solid stretch coming up

Kings close the 3rd quarter on a 13 to 4 run as the Jazz miss their last 3 shots of the quarter. Jazz lead is just one 80-79

Here is the good news. Jazz are 35-4 when leading going into the 4th quarter. Jazz are the #1 4th quarter offense and 2nd best 4th quarter defense and #2 overall

Tweeted this earlier today — Donovan had 12 points in 3rd quarter tonight
MOST 2ND HALF PPG SINCE 2002-03
DONOVAN MITCHELL 17-18 11.4
LEBRON JAMES 03-0410.6
KEVIN DURANT07-0810.5
DAMIAN LILLARD 12-1310.3

Kings aren’t going away. Impressive. They have won 5 of their last 9 and playing with great energy. Hitting threes 12 of 19 from 3 and Jazz are not 5 of 21. Kings lead it 86-85 with 5:41 left

With 3:51 left Sacramento leads 88-87 and the Jazz will now go with Rubio, Mitchell, Ingles, Crowder and Gobert to close. Group went on a 9-0 run earlier in the 3rd quarter

Jazz pull it out 103-97. Jazz win their 9th straight and their 21st of the last 23 games. Donovan Mitchell has 17 2nd half points to lead the Jazz to the win. Rudy Gobert with 22 points and 13 rebounds his 4th 20/10 game in 5 outings

At 40-30 the Jazz are now tied with Minnesota and San Antonio and have the tiebreaker so they are now 5th in the West

The 40th win for Ricky Rubio equals his season-high wins in a season. Best Minnesota team went 40-42.
Jazz allowed 12 first half fastbreak points and 0 in the 2nd half.

Jazz defense was great again by the end. The defensive rating was a 98.0. Holding teams under a 100 is remarkable and the Jazz are doing it every night. Did it tonight when Kings 14 of 21 from 3
