After hitting an NBA total here last night, with the Grizzlies-Knicks going Over, I'm back with another.
The Sacramento Kings' defense is atrocious, the Utah Jazz are one of the deadliest shooting teams in the league and the two meet for what might end up being a destruction in Salt Lake City. Problem with the side is, you don't know when Quin Snyder is going to rest his players and if the backdoor will be left wide open.
But the over is there for the taking.
And I'll continue to look at, and push, the Kings-over narrative as long as they continue to let bad teams run all over them. Because if they're letting teams like the Detroit Pistons come into Sacramento put up 113 points, imagine what they're going to let Utah do tonight on its own court.
The Jazz have had a night off to digest their win over Portland, and will resume its offensive proficiency with a 3-point barrage against one of the most inefficient defenses in the league.
It wouldn't surprise me to see the Jazz conserve energy by playing a bit lax on defense - as long as they have the Kings down by double digits - leaving Sacramento to do enough to keep pace with Utah’s hot shooting. Don't be surprised if we see a little De’Aaron Fox-Donovan Mitchell back-and-forth show at some point.
This one is soaring tonight.
