This is an early game and I have my pants down. In a figurative sense, don't call the cops. We may have to call the cops later on tonight if the Utah Jazz sleepwalk in the Sleep Train Arena, and have to play from behind against the Sacramento Kings. The Kings are 2-0 on the season against the Jazz, and if Utah is a playoff team they can't keep losing games to non-playoff teams. That's just me, I guess I'm what you would call an "idealist". The Jazz will have Rodney Hood back and locked in tonight. The Kings will have DeMarcus Cousins back from his one-game team suspension. I do think that this game is going to be decided in the paint. I hope our boys show up in this small-market battle.
