Kings take out depleted Jazz

Posted by rc360 on April 3, 2011

The Sacramento Kings were set to take on a troubled Utah Jazz team on a Sunday afternoon in front of a strong crowd of 17,215. The Kings might have had it bad this season but the Jazz aren’t so hot either.

Utah saw Jerry Sloan, who was the longest-tenured head coach in American professional sports, resign mid-season. The team won only nine games after starting the season 27-14 and they were riding a seven-game losing streak heading into the game.

They were also without three of their five regular starters and only had 10 players available. For the Kings, there was no reason to consider their opponents pushovers.

After trailing by as much as 21 points, the Jazz gave a reason for the Kings to watch their backs, cutting their deficit down to five points early in the second half.

After the Kings regrouped, they went on a 13-3 run. They went on to beat the Jazz 106-97 in a highlight filled game, including a behind the back pass from Marcus Thornton to Donté Greene for the dunk over Earl Watson.
