What you need to know about the Jazz
The Jazz strolled past the Milwaukee Bucks with points to spare on Sunday, taking the contest 107-95. Utah’s shooting guard Donovan Mitchell filled up the stat sheet, picking up 28 points with four boards, two assists and two steals. Mike Conley returned to the floor after a one-game absence and put up 20 points including four made three-pointers.
Utah ranks third in the NBA with 98.3 points allowed per game which is the same ranking it had last season. The Jazz have been especially stout on the perimeter as they are holding opponents to a league-worst 24.9 percent from three-point range. Three-time Defensive Player of the Year Rudy Gobert remains a force in the paint and is leading the NBA with 17.2 rebounds per game in addition to swatting 1.7 shots per game.
What you need to know about the Kings
Meanwhile, Sacramento was within striking distance but couldn’t close the gap on Sunday as it fell 105-99 to the Dallas Mavericks. Shooting guard Buddy Hield had a pretty forgettable game, shooting only 30.8 percent from the field. Four of Sacramento’s starters also shot under 35 percent from the floor.
Veteran forward Harrison Barnes leads the Kings with a career-high of 23.3 points per game. Barnes, in his 10th NBA season, has never averaged even 20 PPG and his 10.3 rebounds per contest is also a career-high. But guard De’Aaron Fox is off to a slow start as after averaging over 25 PPG last season, Fox is at just 18.5 PPG this year.
