The Jazz and Suns enter this contest with very different realities. Utah is looking to jump up in the standings enough to earn home-court advantage in the first round of the playoffs—something that is proving quite difficult in a very crowded 2-8 out West.
All the while, the Suns want nothing more than to improve lottery positioning by losing games, subsequently loading up on poing-pong balls.
Entering this game, Utah has gone 9-1 over its last 10 overall, but the Jazz are also currently on a five-game winning streak.
Phoenix, on the other hand, has lost its last six outings. This team is just 2-8 over its last 10 overall.
These two tip off in Phoenix at 10:00 p.m. ET in this mid-week showdown.
The Jazz enter this contest as the No. 18 scoring team in the NBA. They are posting 111.2 points per game at this point in the 2018-19 campaign.
The catch is that, while this team used to be a slow, methodical, dare we say it efficient offense despite its low scoring, the efficiency part of their offense has decreased this season and could be problematic if they find themselves ever needing to play from behind in the playoffs.
On the year, the Jazz are just 14th in points scored per 100 possessions (Offensive Efficiency), scoring just 108.3 in that category. But the good news, if you’re a Jazz fan, is that this group has actually jumped four spots in the rankings since they played the Suns about a month ago.
Defensively, this team has a very different (and well-deserved) narrative surrounding them. So far this season, Utah is giving up 106.2 points per night. That number is good enough for the No. 4 in the league.
When looking at advanced metrics, the Jazz are ranked No. 2 behind only the Milwaukee Bucks.
Throughout the 2018-19 campaign, the Jazz are giving up just 103.1 points per 100 possessions.
The Suns enter this game against Utah scoring exactly 107 points per night. That number is only good enough for the No. 24 spot out of 30 in the NBA.
Defensively, this team falls even further in the rankings. Phoenix is just 27th, giving up an average of 116.3 points per outing.
When looking at the advanced metrics, the Suns manage to fall yet another spot to 29th in Defensive Efficiency. The team is giving up 111.7 points per 100 possessions.
On offense, the Suns Slide to 28th in Offensive Efficiency. The team is putting up an average of 103.2 points per 100 possessions.

We don’t know what the spread is as of this writing, but keep a close eye on it when it comes out. This game should be a blowout, but any time the spread is more than 10 points in Utah’s favor, it’s a bit of a risk because of their low-scoring offense.
