The Sacramento Kings and Utah Jazz meet Monday in NBA preseason action at the Vivint Smart Home Arena.
The Sacramento Kings look for another victory to get back to a .500 record in preseason play. The Sacramento Kings are averaging 114 points on 42.9 percent shooting and allowing 116.7 points on 45.4 percent shooting. Buddy Hield is averaging 19.7 points and 3.3 rebounds while De’Aaron Fox is averaging 14.7 points and 6.7 assists. Marvin Bagley III is the third double-digit scorer and Bogdan Bogdanovic is dishing 3.3 assists. The Sacramento Kings are shooting 37.6 percent from beyond the arc and 78.4 percent from the free throw line. The Sacramento Kings are allowing 34.8 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 41.3 rebounds per game. The Sacramento Kings have lost six of their last eight preseason games.
The Utah Jazz also need a victory here to get to a .500 record in preseason action. The Utah Jazz are averaging 119.7 points on 50.4 percent shooting and allowing 114 points on 48.9 percent shooting. Rudy Gobert is averaging 15 points and three rebounds while Tony Bradley is averaging 15 points and 8.5 rebounds. Jeff Green is the third double-digit scorer and Donovan Mitchell is dishing 4.5 assists. The Utah Jazz are shooting 35.1 percent from beyond the arc and 75 percent from the free throw line. The Utah Jazz are allowing 36.2 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 46.3 rebounds per game. The Utah Jazz have won 11 of their last 13 preseason games.
The Kings are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS win and 0-8-1 ATS in their last 9 games following a straight up win. The over is 6-0 in Kings last 6 games playing on 3 or more days rest. The Jazz are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games playing on 2 days rest. The under is 9-1 in Jazz last 10 Monday games. The Kings are 10-3-2 ATS in the last 15 meetings in Utah. The over is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.
The Sacramento Kings have looked bad for much of their preseason and can get torched on the defensive end. The Utah Jazz have had some recent hiccups in preseason play, but they're still one of the better rosters in the league and have won 11 of their last 13 preseason games overall. This is one of those games where I expect the Jazz to flex their muscle a little bit and put together a complete game. I'll side with the Jazz and reasonable number.
