The Kings are free from playing on Thanksgiving this year, but they found little to be thankful for last night as the Jazz stopped the Kings from winning their second consecutive game as the purple and black dropped their contest by 18 in their 105-87 loss.
Offensively, outside of J.J. Hickson (25 & 13), the Kings struggled all evening as only three players were able to notch double digits against the Jazz’s smothering defense.
Tyreke Evans couldn’t continue his stellar play as the Kings guard only mustered a 5 of 16 shooting night en route to only 14 points, despite his solid play on Devin Harris who was held to an equally sub-par 4 of 13.
The Kings saw their record fall to 5-8 on the season, losers of 3 of their last 4 after winning 4 of 5. Next up for the Kings will be a Black Friday contest in Los Angeles against Kobe Bryant and the Lakers.
