The Triple Team!!
1. The Kings came out with insane physicality, and the Jazz really tried to prove superiority 1-on-1. It didn’t work — team ball did.
2. Hassan Whiteside’s defensive… versatility? Yes!
3. On Ingles’ flagrant 2

Tonight I called my 1st game as the analyst for an @nba game for the @Sacramento Kings at @Golden1Center and hands down the best moment of my day was coming home seeing a video of my 3 year old daughter trying to hug me on the TV screen. I hope one day she’ll be so proud 💜👑🏀 – 1:47 AM

Buddy Hield said he thinks Kings rookie Davion Mitchell is the best on-ball defender in the league already. – 1:43 AM
Jason Anderson @JandersonSacBee
Buddy Hield on Davion Mitchell: “I think he’s the best on-ball defender in the league. The way he hawks the ball is different. His lateral movement. The way he closes out is different. It’s just a special gift he has.” – 1:43 AM
James Ham @James_HamNBA
“I think he’s the best on-ball defender in the league.” -Buddy Hield on Davion Mitchell – 1:42 AM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
I thought Luke Walton keeping Buddy Hield on the bench for so long in the fourth, when the Jazz were surging, it did Utah a big favor. The Jazz really had issues with him tonight – 1:41 AM
Sam Vecenie @Sam_Vecenie
Most fun matchup of the night? The possessions where Donovan Mitchell had to deal with getting guarded by Davion Mitchell. Was a hell of a battle. Davion made him work every single time he touched it by fighting through screens. Donovan made some real tough ones. pic.twitter.com/tzs2oQpOPa1:40 AM

I thought tonight’s win illustrated some of Utah’s improved depth. There were quality minutes from a lot of guys. Trent Forrest played seven of the most important minutes of the game. Eric Paschall was really good as well. The Jazz mixed and matched tonight and it worked – 1:30 AM
James Ham @James_HamNBA
NBA official on Flagrant 2 on Joe Ingles:
CUTLER: “When we looked at it, we had reckless contact to an airborne shooter. The contact was deemed unnecessary and excessive, which is the criteria for a Flagrant Foul Penalty 2.” – 1:25 AM

According to Walton, Marvin Bagley had a great week of practice and it’s a next man up situation with Moe Harkless out. Bagley was solid in his 10 minutes. – 12:58 AM

Honestly I don’t think there have been a lot of Jazz teams in the last 20 years that know how to win that game.
Road opener, poor first half, getting pushed around, short two key rotation pieces. Tough. – 12:38 AM
Eric Walden @tribjazz
That was Rudy Gobert’s 17th career game with 20 or more rebounds — the most in Jazz franchise history. Truck Robinson had 16 such games. – 12:37 AM
Ben Anderson @BensHoops
Per the @Utah Jazz, Rudy Gobert’s 17 20-rebound games is the new franchise record passing Truck Robinson. – 12:37 AM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
Rudy Gobert had a 20 rebound game for the 17th time in his career. That is the most in Jazz franchise history – 12:37 AM
Matt George @MattGeorgeSAC
There’s two ways to look at this game tonight:
1. Kings played close to their peak and still lost.
2. Kings gave the best team in the West everything they could handle, their defense is actually good, and they were a few more makes away from a win. – 12:35 AM
Andy Larsen @andyblarsen
Jazz beat the Kings 110-101. Anagram score?
Mitchell scored 27 points, but needed 25 shots to get it.
Gobert had 17 points, 20 rebounds.
Conley 17 points as well.
Kings super physical — that’s new and impressive! — but Jazz get the win to go to 2-0. 3 day break, then v. DEN. – 12:31 AM

James Ham @James_HamNBA
After some embarrassing showings last season against the Utah Jazz, the Kings put up a strong effort Friday night in their home opener. Despite a better effort, the result was still a 110-101 loss. Here are six quick thoughts from the game. – 12:31 AM
Sean Cunningham @SeanCunningham
Utah’s 35 point 3rd and this 29-21 4th quarter advantage are the difference as Utah beats the Kings 110-101 in the 2021-22 home opener. Rudy Gobert 17 pts, 20 boards, Donovan Mitchell with 27pts for the Jazz. Kings led by Harrison Barnes 25 points and 14 boards. – 12:31 AM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
Utah defeats Sacramento 110-101 and the Jazz move to 2-0 on the season. 27 for Mitchell, but Rudy Gobert is the story here. Goes for 17 and 20, and completely dominates the last five minutes on both ends. The Jazz move to 2-0…on to Denver on Tuesday night – 12:30 AM
Eric Walden @tribjazz
FINAL: Jazz 110, Kings 101. Donovan 27p, 5r, 4a. Rudy 17p, 20r. Conley 17p, 3a, 3s. JC 15p, 5r. Bogey 13p, 5r. Hassan a very big 8p, 9r off the bench. Sorry, refs — maybe next time. /S – 12:30 AM
StatMuse @statmuse
Rudy Gobert first 2 games of the season:
16 PTS | 21 REB | 67 FG%

Matt George @MattGeorgeSAC
FINAL: 110-101.
People are going to see that score and completely miss the story of this game. The Kings were great until the end. Gave the Jazz all they could handle.
Kings outscored 64-49 in the 2nd half. – 12:30 AM
Jason Anderson @JandersonSacBee
Off Night for Donovan Mitchell. He has 27 points on 9-of-25 shooting and Davion Mitchell has been all up in his business. This crowd starts frothing at the mouth every time Davion steps up to stop the ball. – 12:29 AM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
The Jazz are going to move to 2-0 on the season. And this is a good win. Fought through some things – 12:27 AM
Sean Cunningham @SeanCunningham
Bojan Bogdanovic sinks a three and waves goodbye to Kings fans. Utah will spoil the Kings opening night. – 12:27 AM
Eric Walden @tribjazz
Bogey drains an open 3, then gives a goodbye wave to the Sacramento crowd. Spicy! – 12:27 AM

12-2 Jazz run and this one is over – 12:26 AM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
Gobert is really at a high level. Great start to the year for him – 12:26 AM
Andy Larsen @andyblarsen
Transition mistakes just killing the Kings, but will likely give the Jazz a win tonight. Jazz up 104-97. – 12:26 AM
Sean Cunningham @SeanCunningham
Kings make a stop, Buddy Hield nearly throws the ball out of bounds looking to advance it, Haliburton saves it, Jazz take it away and leads to a three-point opportunity from Rudy Gobert. 104-97 Jazz under a minute to play – 12:26 AM
Rylan Stiles @Rylan_Stiles
Davion Mitchell just blanketed Donovan Mitchell again. He’s another player in this league that makes watching defense fun. – 12:26 AM
Eric Walden @tribjazz
Nice passing after the turnover, culminating with a Rudy dunk-and-one. Jazz up 7 with a minute to go. – 12:26 AM
Matt George @MattGeorgeSAC
There’s the Buddy Hield crunch time turnover we all fear. – 12:25 AM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
Gobert may have just slammed the door – 12:25 AM

Kings go miniature lineup with Harrison Barnes at the center. – 12:23 AM

Rudy Gobert with a dominant stretch, protecting the rim, getting contested defensive rebounds, running the floor for a dunk, and then fouling out Richaun Holmes on the offensive glass. – 12:23 AM
Dave Mason @DeuceMason
Wow. Kings going extra small with Holmes fouling out.
Fox, Mitchell, Hield, Haliburton and Harrison Barnes. – 12:22 AM
Jason Anderson @JandersonSacBee
Richaun Holmes has fouled out with 3:12 to go. The Kings have Fox, Mitchell, Hield, Haliburton and Barnes on the floor. – 12:22 AM
Sean Cunningham @SeanCunningham
Richaun Holmes fouls out with 3:12 to go. Jazz leads Kings 99-95. 6 points.10 boards and three blocks on the night for Holmes. – 12:22 AM
Eric Walden @tribjazz
And Richaun Holmes is done for the night. – 12:21 AM
Nate Duncan @NateDuncanNBA
Walton uses his 2nd to last timeout after Jazz score 4 straight to push it to 99-95 with 3:12 left. Seems a little early to break into the final 2 timeouts you can take below 3 mins. – 12:21 AM
Matt George @MattGeorgeSAC
Richaun Holmes just fouled out. Going to be tough for the Kings to win without him.
Kings trail 99-95 with 3:12 to go. – 12:21 AM
Ben Anderson @BensHoops
If you want to know where chemistry wins you games, that last play is where chemistry wins you games.
Conley finds O’Neale who finds Gobert in transition in a close game late.
Can’t do that unless you know your teammates well. – 12:21 AM
James Ham @James_HamNBA
Buddy Hield is back in the game for Kings. Fox, Mitchell, Hield, Barnes and Holmes. – 12:20 AM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
Rudy Gobert just had the sequence of the game.
Denied Fox the midrange AND recovered to break up the lob to Holmes and THEN ran the floor for his own lob. All-NBA type stuff there
Jazz by 4….3:33 remaining – 12:20 AM
Andy Larsen @andyblarsen
Okay, that’s just amazing from Gobert. He’s had a poor night, but reads that PnR *incredibly*, runs the floor, then gets the lob. – 12:20 AM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Remember when Tyrese Haliburton did everything he could to get drafted by the Kings and then was awesome for them? Well, it’s still happening and that’s pretty great. – 12:18 AM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
If the Jazz are gonna win this game they are just going to have to play through some things. This kind of game was predictable. The kings are talented. The crowd is rocking. You don’t get a lot of calls on this environment – 12:18 AM
Blake Ellington @TKHblake
Harrison Barnes with 17 shots in this game, he is up to 23 points and 13 rebounds. Serving as a good production stabilizer with Fox struggling a bit. – 12:17 AM
Andy Larsen @andyblarsen
Timeout, Jazz, game tied at 95-95.
The only reason the Jazz are in this game is the 15-8 advantage in threes… so why pass up the three to explore the paint of doom? – 12:16 AM
Sean Cunningham @SeanCunningham
Tyrese Haliburton finally got that full taste of a Kings soldout atmosphere. A steal and breakaway dunk fires up Golden 1 Center as Kings and Jazz are tied 95-95 with 4:57 to play – 12:16 AM
Eric Walden @tribjazz
Jazz’s 6-point lead is gone. Too much complaining about calls, too many lazy passes, not enough force rebounding. It’s 95-all with 4:57 to go. – 12:15 AM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Kings-Jazz has been fun. – 12:15 AM

6-0 run for the Kings and they tie this at 95-95…4:57 remaining…. – 12:15 AM

Sarah Todd @NBASarah
A few bad habits showing for the Jazz tonight. Rudy not getting back after not getting the foul call he wants, Royce passing up open shots, and more – 12:14 AM
Matt George @MattGeorgeSAC
If anything has let the Kings down so far this season, it’s been the offense. – 12:13 AM
Sarah Todd @NBASarah
Honestly surprised at how physical the Kings have been, that’s a good development for them – 12:12 AM
Ben Anderson @BensHoops
Watching Donovan Mitchell figure out Davion Mitchell’s defense throughout the game has been fun.
Like a battering seeing the starting pitcher the third time through, just has a little bit of a sense of where to attack and now he’s getting to the rim. – 12:10 AM

#LeaguePassAlert for Donovan Mitchell vs. Davion Mitchell. The Kings rookie is competing against the Jazz superstar. – 12:10 AM

Donovan Mitchell vs Davion Mitchell is great theater right now. Donovan getting the better of him so far in the 4th after Davion had some highlights on D in the first half. – 12:08 AM
Matt George @MattGeorgeSAC
Wow. The Kings had an open fast break and the officials stop it for a foul that happened 3 seconds earlier. Terrible. – 12:07 AM
Ben Anderson @BensHoops
Whiteside’s toughness tonight has been a little bit of a surprise.
His physicality has matched the Kings in a way the Jazz have needed. – 12:06 AM
Jason Anderson @JandersonSacBee
De’Aaron Fox had that left shoulder heavily wrapped on the bench, but he’s checking back into the game with 8:54 to go. – 12:05 AM

Eric Walden @tribjazz
There are lots of things I don’t know about basketball, but one thing I do is that you shouldn’t leave Buddy Hield open for 3s. – 12:02 AM
Andy Larsen @andyblarsen
Oof, big mistake from Forrest to just leave Buddy Hield, of all people, open from 3. Ingles ejection really hurting Utah. – 12:01 AM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
The Jazz are ushering Buddy Hield into a superlative night. Can’t leave that good a shooter as wide open as the Jazz are leaving him time and again. And it’s as simple as not tagging him in transition – 12:01 AM

Andy Larsen @andyblarsen
Jazz lead 81-80 after 3Q. Two Clarkson 3s, two Clarkson steals were just huge plays in that Jazz comeback. – 11:56 PM
Eric Walden @tribjazz
End 3Q: Jazz 81, Kings 80. Refs momentarily forget they want Sacramento to win and mistakenly allow Utah to take the lead. Also, Jazz pick off a ton of passes, and Jordan Clarkson hits some shots. – 11:56 PM
Matt George @MattGeorgeSAC
Suddenly the Jazz lead 81-80 going to the 4th quarter. – 11:55 PM
James Ham @James_HamNBA
Fun game here in Sacramento. Kings trail the Jazz 81-80 after 3Q. Hield leads with 19 points. Barnes with a big double-double. – 11:55 PM

Lordy, people … No, the officiating hasn’t been great tonight. That said, the Jazz haven’t been good, either. As I get paid to cover the Jazz (and not the refs), I choose to focus more on what the Jazz are doing wrong than what the refs are doing wrong. K? – 11:49 PM

Harrison Barnes is up to 16 points and 13 rebounds. He’s one rebound away from tying his career-high. – 11:47 PM

James Ham @James_HamNBA
Double-double for Harrison Barnes. – 11:41 PM
Eric Walden @tribjazz
It’s 66-62 Kings right now, and again … Jazz are incredibly lucky to be this close. And could be closer if either of those last two 3 tries went in. Kings have been pretty sloppy. Utah might yet pull this out in spite of themselves. – 11:40 PM
Jason Anderson @JandersonSacBee
The Kings are outrebounding the Jazz 32-28, but Luke Walton won’t be happy about giving up two offensive rebounds leading to a 3-pointer by Donovan Mitchell. Kings lead 66-62 with 6:30 to play in the third quarter. – 11:39 PM
Nate Duncan @NateDuncanNBA
Love the no-call on that Mitchell 3 that went in. He barfed up a shot expecting contact from Haliburton. There actually was some, but no-call. Officials seem to be erring on the side of non-calls even on borderline “non-basketball moves” plays. – 11:39 PM
Matt George @MattGeorgeSAC
The Kings just can’t create separation, but the Jazz can’t catch them either. Kings lead 66-62 in the 3Q. – 11:39 PM

Kings might be up 15 if it weren’t for the poor outlet passing – 11:38 PM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba

The Kings are exhausting the Jazz with this pace and their defense. – 11:37 PM

Conley came over to settle Rudy down after he was called for fouling Len. Jazz are pretty annoyed with the whistles right now. – 11:35 PM

The Sacramento Kings aren’t soft anymore. – 11:34 PM
Sean Cunningham @SeanCunningham
Looked like an elbow from Alex Len took down Rudy Gobert – 11:33 PM
Sean Cunningham @SeanCunningham
Rudy Gobert went down hard again and this time its Quin Snyder getting slapped with the technical – 11:33 PM
Andy Larsen @andyblarsen
Technical foul, Quin Snyder. Yeah, Len, elbowed Gobert in the face, no whistle. – 11:33 PM
Sarah Todd @NBASarah
Technical foul on Quin Snyder after it looked like Rudy Gobert got popped in the mouth on the other end. – 11:33 PM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
Now Quin Snyder gets a technical foul. The Jazz are pretty unhappy with the whistle at this point – 11:33 PM

Teach on Jazz coach Quin Snyder after Rudy Gobert is hit by a Len elbow. – 11:32 PM
Andy Larsen @andyblarsen
3 fouls called on the Kings in 12 seconds after a very slow whistle earlier… the technical may have worked. – 11:31 PM
Ben Anderson @BensHoops
This is turning out to be a good technical foul from Gobert.
The @Sacramento Kings have been bullying the @UtahJazz all night and after Gobert’s T the refs call three straight fouls. – 11:31 PM
Matt George @MattGeorgeSAC
Last season, Richaun Holmes foul trouble was a death sentence for the Kings. Now Sacramento has some depth. – 11:30 PM

Bad: Kings answering right back each time from the midrange – 11:27 PM
David Locke @DLocke09
In the first half v. Portland the Sacramento Kings had a defensive rating of 89. Tonight they have a defensive rating 88.
In the second half the Kings had a defensive rating of 141 what will it be tonight? – 11:23 PM
Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
This is elite defense from Davion Mitchell in his second NBA game. All six of these plays are from one second quarter stint. Sneak steal from Gobert, bothering Donovan Mitchell/Jordan Clarkson on ball, seamless switching, drew a Whiteside message screen, a constant pest. pic.twitter.com/7Z23f8OdJh11:22 PM

The Kings are back. – 11:13 PM
David Locke @DLocke09
At the half, the Jazz offensive rating is 88. Kings defense has been tenacious and each time the Jazz are driving they are running into a ton of bodies. Really impressive by Kings. Completely taken Rudy out of game with 1 shot attempt – 11:12 PM
Eric Walden @tribjazz
HALFTIME: Kings 52, Jazz 46. Honestly, a bit closer than Utah probably deserves, given the way they’ve played — 11 turnovers, 37.2 FG%. They definitely need to slow down a bit. – 11:11 PM
Andy Larsen @andyblarsen
Kings up 52-46 on the Jazz at the half. Very sloppy half from Utah, who are shooting just 34% on 2-point looks. The drives into the paint have been sloppy so far, without any real separation from the defenders. – 11:11 PM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
A lot of adjustments to be made. Utah needs to play a lot better offensively. That’s probably the main issue. Too many careless turnovers. Too many possessions where they are playing against the clock – 11:11 PM
Sean Cunningham @SeanCunningham
Kings with a 52-46 halftime lead over the Jazz. Harrison Barnes 12pts, Buddy Hield 11pts for Sacramento. Utah led by Donovan Mitchell’s 12 points. – 11:10 PM

So far, the loudest moments of the night for this G1C crowd have been Davion Mitchell’s defense & Marvin Bagley checking into the game. – 11:00 PM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
4:14 remaining in the first half: the Jazz trail the Kings 43-39….the kings are speeding the Jazz up. The pick setting without Gobert on the floor has been atrocious. And that’s one of the reasons the offense has struggled – 11:00 PM
Sean Cunningham @SeanCunningham
Davion Mitchell running into all kinds of screens now. Gets leveled by Hassan Whiteside. Kings have to call them out. – 10:59 PM

Davion Mitchell has more than live dup to the defensive hype so far tonight.
He’s a legit lockdown defender in a league that doesn’t really have those anymore. – 10:58 PM

Ben Anderson @BensHoops
Jazz need to slow this game down, this pace is a little manic and it’s not really allowing for any structure.
But Mitchell and Bogdanovic combining to shoot 3-11 didn’t help.

End 1Q: Kings 26, Jazz 24. First game that fans have been allowed at Golden 1 since March 11, 2020 (that date ring a bell?) and the crowd has been hyped. Utah seemed a bit deflated after the Ingles ejection. – 10:41 PM
Sean Cunningham @SeanCunningham
Kings lead the Jazz 26-24 after the first quarter in a rowdy Sacramento. Golden 1 Center is amped-up for the home opener. Harrison Barnes with 8 points for the Kings, who shoot 40%. Mike Conley 8 points for Utah, shooting 35% – 10:41 PM

Davion Mitchell is shaking out his left wrist after taking a hard foul from Joe Ingles on that dunk attempt, but he appears to be OK. Play is called a Flagrant 2 on Ingles. – 10:36 PM
Ben Anderson @BensHoops
Joe Ingles made sure the refs blew the whistle on ​the contact under the rim that time.
Davion Mitchell kicked his legs back and it looked like that surprised Ingles so he clipped him and he took a hard spill.
#takenote10:36 PM
Andy Larsen @andyblarsen
I suspect Ingles expected Davion Mitchell to go up for the left hand layup which would have avoided him, but then when Mitchell went for the right hand dunk, there was undercutting contact. I think it’s probably flagrant? But it’s a judgment call. – 10:36 PM
Matt George @MattGeorgeSAC
Mitchell came inches away from slamming his head on the floor. Wow. Scary for the rookie. – 10:35 PM

Loose ball foul called, Jazz will have penalty FTs coming after the timeout. Meanwhile, they lead 22-18 with 2:14 left 1Q. Been a very sporadic performance thus far. Kings’ pace and energy has been troublesome. Don and Conley with 6p each for Utah. – 10:31 PM
