Salt Lake City (ABC4) – The Salt Lake City Stars, the official NBA G League affiliate of the Utah Jazz, will host two home games this week as the team continues their 2021-22 NBA G League regular season campaign.
On Monday, January 10, the Stars will battle the Sioux Falls Skyforce (Miami Heat affiliate) in a game presented by Socios for the second of a two-game set between the two Western Conference foes. Tipoff is scheduled for 7 p.m. at Bruin Arena located at Salt Lake Community College in Taylorsville.
The Skyforce defeated the Stars 115-95 on Saturday, January 8 in what was the regular season opener for the Stars.
Stars center Marques Bolden will make his Salt Lake City debut against the Skyforce after missing the first 14 games of the season (Winter Showcase play) with a right thumb injury. Bolden (6-10, 249, Duke) owns previous NBA experience as part of the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Monday nights are Family Nights this season at Bruin Arena. A four-pack of tickets can be purchased for $20 for the best available seats (excluding the VIP Club and Courtside Club) and hot dogs are just $2.
Following their Monday tilt against the Skyforce, the Stars will welcome in the South Bay Lakers (Los Angeles Lakers affiliate) on Friday, Jan. 14 for a 7 p.m. matchup at Bruin Arena.
The Stars and Lakers will be playing their first of three regular season games on Friday night. South Bay beat the Stars in their two previous matchups this year during Winter Showcase play. The two teams will meet again on Feb. 3 and Feb. 4 in Los Angeles.
Friday night will be “Princess Night presented by Nu Skin” featuring several popular fairytale princesses who will be on hand to meet, take photos and sign autographs with Stars fans.
