The Utah Jazz were able to earn their 26th win of the season after they beat the Orlando Magic last game 114-107, while the Phoenix Suns got themselves a “W” as well as they earned just their 13th win of the season after they beat a tough San Antonio Spurs team in their last outing.
The Utah Jazz had one of their highest scoring games of the season last match, as they scored a season high 114 points in their victory over Orlando.
But that really shouldn’t come as a surprise when taking into account Gordon Hayward and George Hill both got to play in that last game together (a rarity for Jazz fans considering all the injuries the teams had.)
With those two playing alongside each other, the Utah Jazz offense has just been completely different. When Hill and Hayward play together the teams got a top 10 offense in the league.
But when they don’t play together (due to injuries) the teams has one of the worst scoring units in the league.
That alone just shows what both those two bring the Jazz as a unit. So it’s a good things they’ll both be able to play again, against the Phoenix Suns.
The Suns have shown themselves to be susceptible to allowing teams triple digit scoring totals on the regular. So don’t be surprised if Utah does that once again.
The Jazz are the better team on both ends of the floor, so this really is a game for them to lose.
That means they’ve got to continue playing well on both ends of the floor, because if they can do just that, they’ll be able to pull away ahead.
The Phoenix Suns earned easily their biggest win of the season after they beat the San Antonio Spurs in their last outing. The Suns have continued to have trouble closing out games all year.
But for some reason this game was different as Devin Booker just took over in the fourth quarter.
He scored a career-high 39 points on the night, while he kept attacking the Spurs defense all game. Booker was 12-12 from the free-throw line, and 12-22 from the field (54.5%).
Those shooting percentages really helped keep Phoenix in the game, and because of that they were ultimately able to come away victors.
However, now he’s got to do it again, while matching up against a stingy defensive unit in the Utah Jazz.
The Jazz have one of the better defenses in the league, so this is going to be a real test for the young Shooting Guard. Over the last two games he’s dropped over 30 points apiece on two different occasions.
But now he’s got to be able to do it against one of the better defenses in the league.
Eric Bledsoe has continued being the most consistent player on the Phoenix Suns.
But if they’re to win this game they’re going to need the best Devin Booker they can get, because Phoenix isn’t going to be able to win this game getting production out of only one of their star players.

Free Utah Jazz vs. Phoenix Suns NBA Prediction:
The Utah Jazz are favourites to win this game, and rightfully so. They’re the better team on both sides of the floor, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise if they end up coming away out on top.
With an elite defensive unit look for the Jazz to make it extremely tough for Phoenix to score easy buckets all game.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: -5.5
The Phoenix Suns have some nice young talent on their team, but they don’t know how to win yet. So because of that, look for Utah to come out with the victory in this outing.
