The Utah Jazz visited the west coast last night for a game against the flailing Sacramento Kings. It was a match between two struggling teams. After a few solid wins over promising teams in January, it seems as if the Kings are back to their usual losing ways. Sacramento had the lead at the end of the second and third quarters, as well as stunning efforts from a couple of players. However, it was the Jazz who were able to rally in the fourth quarter for the win. It didn’t come easy, but a change of strategy in the last half of the final quarter yielded Utah’s much-needed second straight success on the road. Vegas odds.
Utah looked like the team it was before it went on a six-game losing streak. Efforts from the likes of Al Jefferson [3 points, 4 rebounds], Andrei Kirilenko [10 points, 8 rebounds, 2 assists] and player of the game Deron Williams [21 points, 6 rebounds, 9 assists] allowed the team to challenge their opponent throughout the first half and take the lead a handful of times.

Although Utah trailed by 7 after three quarters of contested play, the Jazz pulled even in the first four minutes of the fourth. From there, they sprinted past the Kings with the help of a zone defense to the win. Hopefully this will be the game that gets the team back on track.
