Meanwhile, the Kings have lost eight of their last nine games and are in danger of losing a fifth straight after falling to the Magic by 107-100 on Friday. Kosta Koufos led the scoring with 19 points off the bench, Marco Belinelli added 17 points and Rajon Rondo had 16 points with 14 assists, but the Kings really missed their number one scoring option in DeMarcus Cousins who served his one-game suspension for conduct detrimental to the team. With the loss, Sacraemento drop to 25-39 overall which is only good enough for 11th place in the Western Conference.
In ATS trends, the Jazz are 2-9 ATS in their last 11 games overall and 1-7 ATS in ther last eight road games, while the Kings are 5-16 ATS in their last 21 games overall and 0-5 ATS in their last five home games.
Head to head, the Jazz are 4-13-2 ATS in the last 19 meetings overall and the over is 5-1 in the last six meetings in Sacramento.
The Jazz haven't been in the best of form lately but they did look very good in their last outing and have too much to play for to let this game slip against a Kings team with nothing to play for.
