Coming attractions

vs. Kings, Today, 7 p.m., FSN

You could call this one of those proverbial trap games, but the Kings beat the Jazz two out of three times last year.

vs. Hornets, Wednesday, 7 p.m., FSN

Another Jazz-Hornets game, another round of comparisons. So who is better: Pops Mensah-Bonsu or Francisco Elson?

vs. Lakers , Friday, 7 p.m., FSN

Its surprising the Jazz didnt move tipoff to 4:30 a.m. and offer door-busting Black Friday prices on tix and merchandise.

at Clippers, Sunday, 1:30 p.m., FSN

Being the team that helped the Jazz discover their amazing comeback abilities may be Clips best achievement this year.

The Stat

18 — That's how many games in 23 seasons Jerry Sloan has missed since becoming the Jazz's head coach. Longtime assistant Phil Johnson improved his fill-in record to 10-8 as Sloan's substitute. And, yes, the 1-1 weekend result counts on Sloan's record (1,199-785).

Who's hot/not

C.J. Miles: Hitting 7 3-pointers in one comeback win merits "hot" status.

Kyrylo Fesenko: Fes has found himself glued to bench, logging 5 minutes in 3 games.
