SACRAMENTO: GUARDS: GREIVIS VASQUEZ seems to have the edge in the point guard battle. He's a pass-first floor general who fits better in a lineup full of chuckers . . . ISAIAH THOMAS will have a major role whether he starts or not. He can score, and while his lack of size is a defensive liability, he makes up for it with harassing on-ball pressure . . . MARCUS THORNTON will eventually be relegated to a smaller role, but the gunning combo guard will get his minutes until Ben McLemore is ready . . . BEN MCLEMORE takes a lot of heat for his lack of assertiveness, but he can knock down corner threes and is an outstanding athlete, which is enough to make him a fine role player . . . JIMMER FREDETTE is kicking around as trade bait . . . Second-rounder RAY MCCALLUM should earn a bench role.FORWARDS: With his potential to be a solid defender, JASON THOMPSON is likely to retain his starting job. He's an afterthought on offense, though . . . LUC RICHARD MBAH A MOUTE seems like a natural to slide into the starting lineup. He can defend multiple spots and doesn't need touches on a team of players who do . . . CARL LANDRY could unseat Thompson. We see him in the same kind of bench role he had in Golden State. He's very good offensively and a relentless rebounder, but will struggle defensively against top-line forwards . . . JOHN SALMONS avoided the amnesty axe, though his role will likely be reduced again . . . Stretch four PATRICK PATTERSON is on the fringe of this rotation . . . Streaky shooting should have TRAVIS OUTLAW in and out of the rotation. CENTERS: The new regime of head coach Michael Malone will try again with DEMARCUS COUSINS, who continues to show flashes of dominance but too often plays and acts like a head case. He's playing for a contract, which would presumably have him on his best behavior . . . CHUCK HAYES will continue to be a second-unit glue guy at the four and five.
UTAH: GUARDS: TREY BURKE is a savvy floor general who can shoot, but he's also short and a mediocre athlete (and we've seen how that's worked out for Brandon Knight). He'll step right in at the point, but immediate success is hardly guaranteed . . . ALEC BURKS is locked in at the two. He'll be able to hang in defensively, and he's a decent ball-handler and passer. His shaky jumper is an issue . . . BRANDON RUSH returns from an ACL tear and could emerge as the sixth man . . . JOHN LUCAS III is here as a Plan B at the point and to help mentor Burke a bit . . . IAN CLARK won't see a lot of action as a rookie, but he can play either guard spot. FORWARDS: DERRICK FAVORS will run into foul trouble, but he will be a nightly double-double threat and rim protector . . . GORDON HAYWARD becomes Utah's No. 1 option on offense. He'll struggle to create his own shot with defenses focusing on him, but he is a knock-down, three-point shooter who's improving off the dribble . . . MARVIN WILLIAMS is coming off heel surgery and will miss at least the first month of the season. He's not a part of Utah's long-term plans, but will likely see minutes due to the team's lack of depth . . . RICHARD JEFFERSON is a player/coach at this point in his career . . . JEREMY EVANS will be brainstorming for the dunk contest. CENTERS: ENES KANTER is a major upgrade over Al Jefferson as a defender and in the team concept on offense. He immediately becomes one of the league's better starting centers . . . ANDRIS BIEDRINS at least has a chance to reestablish himself as a capable back-up . . . RUDY GOBERT has freakish size, but he's a major project who is nowhere near ready to contribute.

*Kings-Jazz Preview* ====================


Sacramento (4-13) at Utah (4-17), 9:00 p.m. EDT

The return of DeMarcus Cousins from a brief absence wasn't enough to help the Sacramento Kings snap their lengthy skid.

The Kings would appear to have a better chance of ending their woes Saturday night with a visit to the Utah Jazz, the owner of the league's worst record.

Cousins had 20 points and 11 rebounds Friday against the Los Angeles Lakers for his eighth double-double after missing Tuesday's 97-95 loss to Oklahoma City because of an ankle injury. Rookie guard Ben McLemore also scored 20 points versus the Lakers - setting a career high - but the Kings couldn't hold on to a late lead in a 106-100 defeat, their season-high sixth in a row. Four of the defeats have been by a combined 11 points.

"This is just ugly," point guard Greivis Vasquez said. "There's no other name. There's no other adjective I could give to describe this."

The Kings (4-13) remained tied for the fewest wins in the NBA with Utah (4-17) and Milwaukee.

The Jazz, who have won two of four at home after dropping five of their first six in Salt Lake City, led early in the fourth quarter against NBA-best Indiana on Wednesday before losing 95-86. They didn't put up much resistance against Western Conference-leading Portland two nights later.

The Trail Blazers scored 39 points in the opening quarter and 40 in the third period en route to a 130-98 victory. With 16 points off the bench, Alec Burks was the only Utah player to score more than 10, and Gordon Hayward was the only starter in double figures.

The Jazz trailed by as many as 42 and allowed the Trail Blazers to make 17 of 23 attempts from 3-point range.

"It wasn't a lack of effort," Hayward said. "It just started to snowball on us."

The Jazz have alternated losses and wins in their last 10 games against the Kings but won both home meetings last season. They were beaten by 11 points in each of their other two games against Sacramento in 2012-13.

Jason Thompson topped 20 points in each of last season's final two matchups with Utah but is averaging a career-low 6.9 this season and has scored in double figures just five times.

Cousins averaged 12.8 points against the Jazz last season, his second-fewest against any West opponent. He averaged 21.3 points and 14.8 rebounds in four matchups against them in 2011-12.

Hayward sat out the final two matchups with a sprained right shoulder after averaging 17.0 points in his previous seven.

Burks averaged 20.0 points and shot 56.5 percent in his two games against Sacramento last season and has scored in double figures in a career-high five straight games.

The Kings haven't lost seven straight contests since April 3-13, 2012.
