The Jazz get handled by a bad Kings team in Sacramento (18-33, 13-12 home) in front of an energetic crowd.
Isaiah Thomas scored 25, Marcus Thornton 24, and Jason Thompson 21 & 7 for Sacramento. DeMarcus Cousins contributed 13/11/6, while Tyreke Evans added 12 & 6.
Burks led the Jazz with a career-high 24 points, getting to the line often and knocking down all nine free throws. Jefferson scored 16, Kanter with 15, and Carroll 14.
The first half was back-and-forth, but the Kings rallied early in the third quarter to take a double-digit lead, and the Jazz never really got back into it.
Corbin’s main man Watson was back in the lineup, and Ty didn’t hesitate to going right back to playing the Watson + Tinsley point guard rotation for 40+ minutes. The two were repeatedly torched by Isaiah Thomas all night long.
The second straight Jazz loss drops them to 28-24, now 8th in the West, with the Thunder (38-12) coming to town Tuesday — the first of three games before the trade deadline on Feb. 21.
Jazz player of the game: Alec Burks
