Sacramento Kings v Utah Jazz Live
Even though it remains to be seen whether the Sacramento Kings will be able to make it to the playoff mix in the Western Conference in this year's NBA campaign, the franchise from California certainly is overdue to make some progress. More specifically, fifth overall pick DeMarcus Cousins will join Tyreke Evans in Sacramento to carry the team to a more successful season in 2010-11. Thus, the Sacramento Kings will try to get their fourth preseason win when they meet Deron Williams and the Utah Jazz on Saturday at 1 a.m. GMT.
Considering that the Jazz lost All-Star Carlos Boozer this summer and brought in Al Jefferson from the Minnesota Timberwolves, many experts thought it would take Utah some time to get everyone on the same page. After all, the franchise also lost Kyle Korver, Ronnie Brewer and Wesley Matthews which put considerable pressure on ninth overall pick Gordon Hayward to step in as shooting guard. Yet, coach Jerry Sloan's squad won seven straight in the preseason and had no trouble integrating Al Jefferson as new go-to-guy in the low-post area. Likewise, off-season acquisition Raja Bell provides the Jazz with another hard-nosed veteran who is one of the better perimeter defenders in the league and has no trouble knocking down open shots from beyond the arc. Therefore, Deron Williams and company are confidently heading to their encounter with the Kings on Saturday night.
