"I feel like we definitely should have won this game," Burke said, "but it was the small areas that killed us down the stretch."
Alec Burks had 19 points of the bench for the Jazz.
With Williams and Favors out, Biedrins saw early minutes, which Sacramento coach Mike Malone, an assistant when Biedrins was in Golden State, exploited. Late in the first quarter, Malone called for Hamady Ndiaye to intentionally foul Biedrins three times. The center went 1 for 6 from the line in that stretch.
In the second, Burks and Richard Jefferson traded 3-pointers, as the Jazz pushed their lead to 10. But the Kings whittled away the advantage.
Sacramento guard Isaiah Thomas scored nine straight Kings points to end the third quarter. He capped off the run by blowing past Diante Garrett for a layup, giving the Kings a 74-70 lead after three.
Thomas finished with 26 points off the bench.
