Jazz missing their 3 leading scorers and I guess the Kings thought they could just not even bother on the defensive end. Jazz with 27 already midway through the 1st. Yuck

At some point, you need to go up and body these guys when they’re trying to dunk. Take the foul, but make them think about the possibility of hitting the floor on their next attempt.

This is looking like they decided to take a night off in pregame. No focus, lazy ball movement, practice-effort shooting, barely guarding. It’s been a fruitful road-trip and it’s a back to back with a solid team coming up tomorrow night, but you at least like to see some semblance of effort.

One thing they need to focus on cutting down is biting on pumps. It would go a long way to boosting defense. Time and time again teams pump-fake on them, because they know they’ll jump themselves right out of position to defend the actual shot.
