Utah vs. Sacramento, 02/09/2013 22:00
In tonight's evening game of the NBA we have the Sacramento Kings hosting the Utah Jazz.
Given the fact that the Sacramento Kings happen to be my favorite team in the league, and I do not like playing on them for that reason, i point out several factors that will make an impact on tonights game.
First off I'd like to start off by saying that the Utah Jazz have one of the best records at home with 19-6, however a mediocre record on the road (9-17) halts them from being one of the better teams in the NBA. Out of those overall 9 road wins, four of the most recent ones are against sorry teams such as Charlotte, Phoenix, Orlando, and Detroit They have played 5 games in 7 days, and have to play the second game of a back to back coming off a home loss against the bulls last night.
On the other hand, even though the kings are not that great either, they hold a solid record at home (.500) 12-12, and look to capitalize against a bad road team. These two played 5 days ago, and Sacramento has not had a game since. Even though they lost the previous game against Utah in Salt Lake, they kept it substantially close against one of the best home teams in the NBA. To also mention, they have had plenty of rest back home, and also time to emphasize on what needs to be adjusted this time around since they haven't had a game since they played Utah last.
Kings are healthy, DeMarcus is not suspended, and they are ready to come with fire tonight.
In all matchups between these two this season, both teams have defended at home. 2 Games in Utah, and 1 at Sacramento, look for the season series to be split tonight.
Taking Sacramento -1 tonight.
From my success onto yours, and I wish you all the best of look, but more importantly skill and wisdom. Stay connected, and follow for more picks.
