X-factor: No one expected Jazz center Enes Kanter to outplay DeMarcus Cousins, who had 27 points and 10 rebounds. But Kanter’s 17 points and 13 rebounds were a solid contribution.
Injury update: Kings guard Darren Collison missed the game because of a strained right hip flexor. The Jazz was without guard Joe Ingles because of low back spasms.
