Jazz blast Kings
Utah rolled to the tune of 113-81 at home Saturday night over Sacramento to improve to 2-1 on the season including 2-0 at home. The Jazz led 66-41 at halftime en route to the triumph. Bojan Bogdanovic led the way for Utah with 26 points on 10-of-18 shooting including 5-of-9 from 3-point range plus 1-of-1 at the free throw line. He also pulled down four rebounds. Donovan Mitchell contributed 15 points and four assists, while Mike Conley Jr. had 12 points plus eight dimes and three boards. Georges Niang added 12 points and three caroms off the bench.
Suns stun Clippers

Devin Booker led the Suns with 30 points on 10-of-20 shooting including 3-of-6 from 3-poitn distance plus 7-of-8 at the free throw line. He also notched eight assists and six rebounds.

NBA Betting Trends
The Jazz are 12-4 ATS in their last 16 games versus the Pacific Division. Utah is 3-9-1 ATS in their last 13 Monday games.
The Suns are 4-1 ATS in their last five home games. Phoenix is 7-3 ATS in its last 10 Monday games.
Despite beating the Clippers the other night, this presents a terrible matchup for the Suns as it does for many teams that face the Jazz. Expect Booker to be a little more bottled up than usual and the absence of DeAndre Ayton due to suspension show up more tonight with Rudy Gobert manning the middle for Utah. The Jazz were extremely impressive a couple nights ago and I look for that to continue here.
