The storyline was set up perfectly.

Jimmer Fredette was back in the state where he became a national phenomenon. And he took a three-pointer to give the Kings the lead late in the game.

But there would be no fairy-tale ending to this game.

Fredette's shot with 5.9 seconds to play was off, sailing out of bounds, and the Kings would go on to lose to the Utah Jazz, 96-93, Saturday night at EnergySolutions Arena.
