Tonight the Utah Jazz host the Sacramento Kings. Both teams thought they were going to the playoffs, but with fewer than 20 wins a piece these teams have to kick it up a notch if they are going to make it. Utah is in the lead right now, but Sacramento beat the Jazz once already, and are itching to do it again. It's the second night of a back to back for both teams, hopefully the altitude hits Sactown harder than our guys. Still, there is some small market kinship between these two.
