THE MAN OF THE NIGHT
You know the story by now.
-Deron Williams is in West Virginia for his uncle's funeral and not in Utah for the game.
-Carlos Boozer is injured and on crutches for his calf strain.
-"Carlos Boozer added 20 points and 11 rebounds before leaving because of a strained left quadriceps that wasn't expected to sideline him long." That's the AP source after last season's injury against Milwaukee.
-So far there are some scary similarities between last year's Boozer injury and this year's injury.
-Kevin Martin averaged 26 points and 12 free throws a game against the Jazz last season.
-Tyreke Evans shot 19 free throws last time the Kings played in Utah.
-Kevin Martin is averaging 13 points a game since his return from injury. He has scored 5 points 3 games in a row.
-The Jazz will be honoring Hot Rod Hundley tonight by hanging a banner with a microphone and the number of called games on it.
-Last year the Kings honored Chris Webber at halftime. The Jazz won that game.
-I hope the Kings don't return the favor.
- The Kings are a good offensive rebounding team.
-Paul Millsap and Ronnie Price will start tonight.
-Also, THE KOOF and THE FES are back in the action tonight.
-"You Gotta Love it Baby"
