Down three starters and behind by 20 points in the fourth quarter, the Sacramento Kings tried to foul their way back into the game. It almost worked. Derrick Favors had 17 points and 12 rebounds, Marvin Williams added 16 points and 11 rebounds, and the Jazz held off the depleted Kings 106-99 on Monday night. “If you build a lead like that, then it’s easier when you have some lapses down the stretch. You have a little room for error,” Utah forward Gordon Hayward said. Enes Kanter added 16 points and Jeremy Evans tied a career high with 14 points and grabbed 10 rebounds as the Jazz took advantage of injuries that have left Sacramento without frontcourt starters DeMarcus Cousins and Rudy Gay for the past three games. Utah hosts Golden State on Friday. Kings guard Jimmer Fredette, who played at nearby BYU, scored eight points. Sacramento outscored the Jazz 52-38 in the paint despite the absence of Cousins and Gay.
