The NBA season is moving to the end parts of the Regular Season and the Postseason isn’t that far away. We have to keep a close eye on how things are shaping up as we go on toward the Playoffs and the Play-in tournament. Keeping that in mind, let us jump int the game between the Utah Jazz and the Sacramento Kings.Receive Your Welcome Bonus!
The Jazz comes into the game after defeating the Celtics 118:117 on the heels of an important 28 points performance by Lauri Markkanen. The Jazz has three wins in four games after a daunting four-game losing streak, the type of losing streak which has been constant for the team. The Jazz has managed 36 losses and 34 wins and they have the same win percentage as three teams and are in a close battle with several others for the Play-in spots and somehow still achievable top-six Playoffs spots. The Jazz has a tough schedule ahead and Lauri’s work is cut out.
The Kings enter the match after defeating the Wizards 132:118 as Domantas Sabonis racked up 30 points, 10 assists, and nine rebounds. The Kings have been on fire and have won three in a row and six of their last seven games in what has been an astounding season where they have won 43 and lost just 27 games. They are tied for the second spot against Grizzlies and this battle between the two teams is now reaching the climax. The Kings have one of the best offensive teams in the league and have made a case for a deep postseason run, something which is happening after two decades or so.

Expert Betting Tips
The Kings have one of the best offensive squads in the league whereas the Jazz has been struggling on the defensive end. The unavailability of Clarkson and Sexton hurts the Jazz therefore they’d need Lauri’s questionable status to transform into available because, without him, they don’t have any consistent offense. At any rate, I back the Kings to win big here and predict a scoreline of 127:117 in their favor.
