The Sacramento Kings will begin their longest road trip of the season tonight as they visit the Jazz in downtown Salt Lake City.
The Sacramento Kings have split their season series with the Utah Jazz so far this season. In the third game of the year, the Kings were demolished in Utah by 33 points, and remains as the largest beat down of the season so far. But Sacramento was able to avenge that loss just a few days later, defeating the Jazz on a last-second bucket to get them their first victory of the season after a rough start.
The Kings will need all the luck they can get tonight, as they are heavy underdogs playing against one of the hottest teams in the NBA.

Players To Watch
It is likely that we have reached the developmental phase of the season, and certainly will with a few more losses. One player to watch over the final 41 games of the season is Bogdan Bogdanovic.
He makes his much-anticipated return to the court tonight after nursing an ankle injury for the last 6 games. His contract situation, as well as trade rumors that surround him, will make him an interesting subject down the stretch. The Kings are 2-9 without Bogdanovic in the lineup this season, and will need him to be present tonight if Sacramento is to hold out any hopes of upsetting Utah.
The Kings find a way to lose when they should win, and a way to win when they should lose. I’m banking on their inconsistency tonight.
Kings 107, Jazz 103
