History of Violence: The Utah Jazz and Sacramento Kings don't like each other

Russ Isabella-US PRESSWIRE

Tonight the Utah Jazz host the Sacramento Kings. These two teams seem to hate each other. Particularly Kings center DeMarcus Cousins seems to hate any point guard on our team -- going after Devin Harris, Earl Watson, and Mo Williams over the last few seasons. I guess he's going to want to say hello to Trey Burke tonight. But knowing DeMarcus he's going to probably going to have to get it done in the first half of the game . . . you know . . . because . . .

Of course, the Kings/Jazz animosity didn't start there. There's a long history. Check out this hilariously produced video of a flagrant foul Chris Webber put on John Stockton in the playoffs. Seriously, that's the stuff that franchise celebrates.

And who could forget Ron Artest (Metta World Peace) doing his thing?

Yes, tonight's game should be fun. And I'm not talking about all the Jimmer Fredette fans who will be in attendance. It's going to be fun because it's a match-up of two bad teams (the Jazz are 4-17, and the Kings are 4-13) that played and lost last night. DeMarcus Cousins is a wildcard. And our guys hopefully play with some pride tonight. The fun starts here at SLC Dunk all night long. Game Preview to drop around 5 pm MT.
