The Jazz went 10 of 17 from long distance over the first two quarters and
opened up a 63-47 lead by halftime. Overall, Utah hit 20 of 33 3-point
attempts.

Kings 122, Suns 105

Buddy Hield had a dunk and a pair of 3-pointers in a game-opening 13-2 flurry,

win at Phoenix.

The Kings held the Suns to one field goal in the first 5 1/2 minutes and a
total of nine points in the first quarter, taking a 36-9 lead after one
period. Hield finished with 20 points in 18 minutes to lead seven players in
