Game 2: Utah Jazz (1-0) @ Sacramento Kings (1-0)

Utah Jazz to play the Sacramento Kings on the road

Barnes had one of his best game for a while.

I think Jazz will be ready.

Its a long season but I'm hoping the Jazz run the table early hopefully allowing Q to experiment with different rotations throughout the season without sweating overall record. Instead of keeping the starters in with 4 minutes left in the 4th quarter and a 20 point lead, lets see that small ball lineup get some run!

I would like to see Jared Butler get a chance to compete against his former teammate Davion Mitchell, and hope I don't regret saying that. Davion saw 24 minutes of action off the bench in game one, and like Butler, struggled to hit shots in his first NBA game. Go Jazz!

Yes, I'd like to see more of Butler too. Don't know how realistic it is to rely on a rookie but we know Conley has injury issues, so it would help if Butler managed to acclimate to the league during the regular season so that he could perhaps contribute in the playoffs if Conley goes down again.

Personally for you guys out of all teams you should be dealing with Morey and working to get a deal done no matter how much it takes.

Disregard 3ball shooting I have no time for that.

A team is about style/philosophy on maxing your best player.

Gobert/Ben/Mitchell trio is a very very scary team with huge potential.

That’s like a better shooting A.I getting Mutumbo and a suped up Green. Now you aren’t paper tigers anymore because it’s always been easy pickings on the wing which lessens Goberts defensive impact that people turn a blind eye too.

Serious team then. Gobert can then camp inside for 40mins in the playoffs and Ben can patrol anywhere on the outside. West is more open this year

Double down on defense with two great defenders that occupy the whole halfcourt is extremely hard to punch through. You guys have enough scoring to be a real real threat imho.

You might be right, but I can see the Jazz having serious concerns about having two players on the court at the same time who are offensively challenged. The even greater concerns relate to Simmons' attitude and work ethic. Even great teams can be brought down by chemistry and character issues.

If we're keeping Gobert and Mitchell, who are we going to trade for Simmons? I doubt Conley + one of Ingles/Clarkson/O'neal will be enticing enough for the Sixers (plus, if we give up Clarkson, we won't be able to score). We don't have good draft picks either.

Jazz *should* win by double digits--more offense, better defense, better coaching, better depth.

The way the Jazz work, they need guys who are willing to take and make shots. Ben's game is on the ball, playing downhill and putting pressure on the rim. He's like a bigger Jason Kidd. There's value in that, but he has to be willing to shoot and get to the line.

I think the Jazz would love to add a dynamic wing between Mitchell and Gobert. I just don't think that Simmons is going to be it.

Interested to see how the Jazz come out in the second half after a terrible 1st half performance.

Mitchell really does start every season kinda poorly.

The hustle and energy between the teams is night and day.

The Jazz toughed it out in the end. Gobert was fresh coming in mid-4th quarter and made a real difference. Whiteside taking some extra minutes is helping Rudy.

I feel like the Jazz need one more guy to really make this work. They need to upgrade either Royce or Bojan, imo. I'm really interested to see what Rudy Gay looks like as a 2-way player.

Weird game.

The officiating was pretty awful for both teams, though the Kings got the benefit of the home whistle. The flagrant 2 on Joe was excessive IMO.

Bojan was invisible after his great opening night. Clarkson was ice cold the second half. Mitchell was streaky on both ends of the floor. Conley did nothing it felt like, Gobert had a number of dumb plays... Kinda surprised they won.

The only really worrisome thought I have is the Jazz once again wilted against physical play.

Davion Mitchell was fun to watch though. He was excellent. Also, the Lakers are fools for picking Westbrook over Hield.

Yah the flagrant was...something. Completely agree that it was a dangerous play, but it certainly wasn't intentional.

Quin was very complementary to Whiteside and Forrest, especially Whiteside, after the game. He said their minutes were huge. So I imagine Forrest, with his better defense, is still alive and well in a competition with Butler for scarce minutes. Perhaps which player gets some minutes will be game to game situational? Go Jazz!
