2021 Kings versus Jazz {virtual}

My original intention for Saturday night was to watch King Richard, but Jack pulled us into watching the Sacramento Kings versus Utah Jazz NBA basketball game. While in the early 2000s I would often watch Kings games, I rarely sit and watch a game in recent years. Trailing by four points at the beginning of the fourth quarter, the Kings were blown out in the fourth quarter and lost the game by the score of 123 to 105.

Richaun Holmes was the high scorer for the Kings. He had 22 points on 9 for 10 from the field and 4 for 5 from the free throw line. De'Aaron Fox was 5 for 17 from the field...

Donovan Mitchell was the high scorer for the Jazz. He had 26 points on 11 for 22 from the field, 3 for 7 from three and 1 for 1 from the free throw line.

The game was paused for more than 10 minutes in the fourth quarter to allow workers to clean up after after an overserved fan vomited on the court. The mess was cleared and the fan was escorted away from his courtside seat.

The Kings have lost seven of eight. Fans rained down boos and chanted "Fire Coach Walton!" in the final minutes. On Friday night at dinner, Jack bet me that Walton would be fired before Thanksgiving.

A game log for the 2021-2022 season is here.
