2006 Kings versus Jazz

Jack and I went to the Sacramento Kings versus Utah Jazz basketball game. When we divided up the Kings tickets, I never expected that the Utah Jazz would have the best record in the NBA. The Jazz entered Arco Arena with a league leading record of 10 wins and 1 loss.

This is probably the most disencouraging game that I can remember attending in at least fifteen years. After leading by 18 points at halftime and by as many as 21 in the third quarter, the Kings unraveled and lost by a score of 110 to 101.

Carlos Boozer was huge for the Jazz. He had 32 points on 14 for 20 from the field and 13 rebounds. Bibby played only three minutes in the second half before leaving the game for good with a thigh contusion.

Through three quarters, the Kings offense actually looked a little better. After having only 10 assists in the whole game on Sunday, the Kings had 10 assists in the first half. The game also included a spectacular left-handed dunk by Ronnie Price over Carlos Boozer.
