Utah's expected to start Devin Harris, C.J. Miles, Gordon Hayward, Paul Millsap and Al Jefferson against Sacramento.

Harris on Kings forward DeMarcus Cousins: I only worry about getting in the playoffs. That's all I worry about.

Jefferson on Cousins: I don't know and I really don't care about it. … I'm pretty sure there's more important things on Devin's mind than trying to worry about bad blood between him and DeMarcus Cousins.

Jefferson added Cousins has to get to the point where he just plays basketball and doesn't worry about every little thing that bothers him.

DeMarre Carroll on getting more scoring out of the Jazz's second unit: We've just got to go out there and play with energy. When you play with energy … we don't really need to worry about the offensive end. We need to make our defense [offense]. We're getting there. The transition when we had Jamaal [Tinsley] and then you just put Earl [Watson] in there. We've just got to get comfortable with each other.

Him and Alec Burks being the main scoring options: Yeah, basically. Just a work in progress. We've got to continue to get better. Me and Alec, this is like our sixth game together.

Burks' ability to score off the bench: Aw, yeah. Definitely. In a probably a year or two, he can be like a James Harden. A good sixth man. He'll just continue to keep getting better and the sky's the limit for the kid.
