The Utah Jazz beat the Sacramento Kings on Saturday- had a long break- and then beat the Sacramento Kings again on Wednesday. In the first quarter it looked like it was going to be a long night for the Jazz even though the Kings largest lead in the first quarter was four at 22-18. Trey hit from 54' to cut the deficit to one!
TREY FROM 54' AT BUZZER! End Q1: Jazz 21, Kings 22 #SACatUTA— Utah Jazz (@utahjazz) April 9, 2015
The second quarter was ugly for the Jazz. The Kings outscored the Jazz by five to take a six point lead into the half. The Kings had three players in double figures by half-time, Omri Casspi, Carl Landry and Jason Thompson. Derrick Favors and Trey Burke lead the Jazz with eight.
The Jazz showed some life in the third quarter. The Jazz showed enough life to take a two point lead at the end of the third. The Sacramento King's beat writer Jason Jones had this to say, which isn't said that often in our Jazz world.
While the guards have struggled, the Kings' starting frontcourt has held its own. But Utah's guards are killing them.— Jason Jones (@mr_jasonjones) April 9, 2015
The Jazz started the fourth quarter on a 15-0 run and the game looked to be all but over. The Kings pulled within eight with just under three minutes to go in the game but never got any closer.
