The next game day in the NBA will continue with an interesting confrontation, "Sacramento" will host "Utah" on its site. The game of these teams will take place on May 17 at 04: 00 Moscow time. Our portal has prepared a forecast for this meeting for you.
The Kings have huge problems in defense, they allow them to score a large number of points to their opponents, while they themselves are not so effective. Recently, the players of "Sacramento" began to show good basketball and gave out a series of victories, with the exception of a disastrous meeting against "San Antonio", but after that the "kings" managed to win with a big score "Oklahoma City" twice in a row, although in previous meetings they lost without a chance on the road to "Memphis" twice in a row.
"Jazzmen" look confident in almost every game, and show dominating basketball. Utah looks especially powerful on its own court, where even the strongest teams in the league often have no chance. Recently, Utah has managed to regain confidence in its abilities, issuing a series of victories that was interrupted only in a recent away match against Golden State. Still, the first place will not go anywhere from the "musicians", and the victory in the last match against the "Oklahoma City"is proof of this.
Injuries and disqualifications:
Sacramento - Fox (illness), Haliburton (ankle injury), Barnes (groin injury).
Utah - Morgan (ankle injury), Mitchell (ankle injury).
Statistics and figures
- The last match between these teams ended with the victory of "Utah" 105: 154.
- Has a poor two-game losing streak to Sacramento.
- In their last five games, Utah has lost just twice.
The clear favorite in this confrontation looks like "Utah", which has a more powerful squad and has already won in the last meeting of these teams. The "Jazzmen" have recently gained good form and issued a series of victories. Although "Sacramento" can also give a good match, for me, the visitors look better here.
