Hold onto your high notes, folks, because we’ve got a showdown at the Golden 1 Center that’s sure to be jazzier than a Miles Davis riff. Our underdogs, the Utah Jazz, are looking to shake off their recent stumble against the Rockets and swing back into rhythm against the Sacramento Kings, who are also smarting from a royal tumble against the Mavericks. It’s a 09:00PM EST tipoff, and the Kings are favored to hold court, but don’t count the Jazz out just yet. The over/under’s humming at a cool 222.0, with the Jazz dancing around a 12.5 line and the Kings sitting pretty at -12.5. So, whether you’re a sucker for a long shot or you’re banking on the Kings to keep their crown, this is one game that’s sure to be more thrilling than a sax solo in a smoky club. So tune in, because tonight, it’s about who can hit the high notes and who’ll be left playing the blues.
