SAC vs UTA Dream11: In the Western Conference, the action is always sky-high and there are a lot of top-quality squads. In this game, the Utah Jazz visits the Sacramento Kings in the inter-conference battle. Utah has double wins than losses while Kings continue to have another tough season again being way below the 50% win mark.
Utah has a backcourt of Mitchell and Conley while Mitchell is an ace scorer, Conley is the primary playmaker. Gobert provides elite defense in the middle while Royce O’Neale is a defensive presence at the big forward. On the other hand, Clarkson, Gay, and Ingles give consistent production off the bench and the Jazz roster is loaded.
Kings is a guard-heavy lineup. While Fox and Haliburton can dish off assists in the starting lineup, Buddy Hield is an elite perimeter shooter. Meanwhile, Davion Mitchell is a rookie who can guard the perimeter well. Richuan Holmes is a superb double-double type of Center, however, the rest of the unit doesn’t indicate that much depth.
Host: Sacramento Kings

NBA Projections, Stats & Analysis
Jazz: Same core as the last season
Jazz has returned with the same core as last season and is a loaded outfit. What makes Jazz special is that the team can tackle injury issues with depth and presents a challenging roster. Utah has one of the best perimeter defenses, limiting opponents to around 32% from three and it is not surprising considering the team has defenders like Conley. The team is slated to reach the Playoffs until a host of injuries derail the campaign.
Kings: Some things never change
Sacramento has not had a huge impact in the league since Chris Webber’s days back in the early 00s. The team loses games it should win and has lost against teams like Timberwolves, Spurs, and Thunder, who are way under the 50% win mark. It is clear that Sacramento needs to tighten up the game and not lose control which the team does often.
