Sacramento (USA), Apr 28 (EFE) .- Croatian forward Bojan Bogdanovic contributed 24 points and, despite losses, the Utah Jazz made 24 triples and recovered from a two-game losing streak to set a new record franchise scoring in their 105-154 win over the Sacramento Kings.
French center Rudy Gobert finished with a double-double of 12 points and 10 rebounds, point guard Jordan Clarkson contributed 23 points and forward Georges Niang had 19 points, with five triples, which also helped the Utah team.
After conceding back-to-back losses in Minnesota, the Jazz, which has the best record in the Western Conference and the league (45-17), took control of the game and never gave the Kings a choice.
Utah, which played guard Donovan Mitchell and point guard Mike Conley without the starters, outscored Sacramento 17-46 in the second quarter and built a 49-point lead in its strongest win of the season.
Utah’s previous one-game scoring record was 153 in the 1977-1978 season when the franchise was in New Orleans.
Bahamian guard Buddy Hield was Sacramento’s best with 18 points and seven assists. The Kings’ hopes of advancing to the postseason suffered another setback with their twelfth loss in 15 games.
