Stars Cap off Regular Season with Two Home Games
SALT LAKE CITY - The Salt Lake City Stars, the official NBA G League affiliate of the Utah Jazz, will wrap up the 2018-19 regular season with two home games this week, beginning with "First Responders Night presented by Larry H. Miller Dealerships" this evening. Both games carry playoff implications, as the Stars are one of three teams vying for the final two playoff spots in the Western Conference.
"First Responders Night presented by Larry H. Miller Dealerships" tonight will feature the Stars wearing special red theme jerseys to acknowledge public safety officials and their life-saving work in our community. First responders are invited to the game and will be provided up to six free tickets with valid ID presented at the box office, which opens at 6 p.m. (MT). The game tips off at 7 p.m. (MT) from Bruin Arena on the campus of Salt Lake Community College.
The Stars will conclude the 2018-19 regular season - the club's third campaign in Salt Lake City - with a contest against the Iowa Wolves (Minnesota Timberwolves affiliate) on Friday, March 22. The game is "Fairy Tale Night and Fan Appreciation Night presented by Zions Bank," and the first 300 fans in attendance will receive a light-up stick and Stars socks, courtesy of Zions Bank. In addition, fairy tale characters will be on hand throughout the evening for photos with children. Following the game, the entire Stars team will be available for autographs for fans.
The Stars will also hold their annual food drive at Friday's game, which benefits KidsEat! Utah. Fans are invited to purchase a ticket and two food items for $10. All food purchases will be fulfilled by the Stars and donated in the fans' names at the game.
Entering the team's final two games of the regular season, the Stars have clinched their first winning campaign in the Salt Lake City Era (since 2016-17), owning a 26-22 (.542) record. The club is one of three teams competing for the final two playoff spots in the Western Conference (Memphis Hustle, Agua Caliente Clippers).
The Stars' roster is highlighted by Utah Jazz two-way players Tyler Cavanaugh and Naz Mitrou-Long, who will continue to split their time between the Jazz and Stars this season. In addition, Utah Jazz players Grayson Allen, Tony Bradley, Danté Exum, Raul Neto and Georges Niang have spent time with the Stars on assignment this season.
All Stars home games include inflatables, pop-a-shot, face painters and balloon artists in the Kids Zone, presented by University of Utah Health, as well as appearances by the team's mascot, Buster, and a rotation that includes the Jazz Dancers, Jazz Dunk Team or Jazz Stunt Team.
