DeMarcus Cousins says he was 'horrible' in loss to Jazz
Kings (11-17) at Jazz (18-11)
Where: Vivint Smart Home Arena, Salt Lake City
When: Wednesday, 6 p.m.
TV/radio: CSNCA, 950, 1140
1. Gobert vs. Cousins: Jazz center Rudy Gobert outplayed DeMarcus Cousins on Dec. 10 at Utah. Cousins needs to be more efficient on offense after making only 7 of 22 shots in that game.
2. Look out for Hayward: Utah small forward Gordon Hayward is a talented scorer, and he had 26 points in the first meeting. Sacramento must make it harder for him to score.
3. Stamina check: Kings coach Dave Joerger thought his team was worn out by the end of the 104-84 loss Dec. 10. The Kings’ fatigue was evident when they scored a season-low eight points in the fourth quarter. Utah played the Golden State Warriors in Oakland on Tuesday, so both teams will have to deal with tiredness.
