2023 Kings verus Jazz

Saturday night after our Hadrian's Wall training hike, Sharon and I went to the Sacramento Kings versus Utah Jazz NBA game. I bought the tickets for a date night; Sharon and I haven't been to a Kings game just the two of us since the 2018-2019 season. We went early and had dinner at the Arena [chicken rice bowls from Ginger Star].

I was disappointed that the Kings were sitting Fox with right hamstring soreness, but it turned out that the Jazz were without their leading scorer, Lauri Markkanen (left hand contusion). Trailing 61 to 55 at half-time, Kings outscored the Jazz 35 to 17 in the third quarter and held on to win by the score of 123 to 113.

Kevin Huerter was the leading scorer for the Kings. He had 27 points on 10 for 21 from the field, 2 for 9 from three and 5 for 6 from the free throw line.

The leading scorer for the Jazz was Walker Kessler. He had 31 points on 14 for 16 from the field and 3 for 6 from the free throw line. I have heard Bill Simmons talk about how well Kessler is doing after being a throw in for the Rudy Gobert trade.

The Kings have four wins and no losses in games that I have seen in person during the 2022-2023 NBA season.

A footnote. This is the first time that I have parked at the Wells Fargo Garage and didn't get an EV parking spot. Parking on the three floor, it took a while to get moving and out of the lot...
