It’ll be a battle between the top two teams in the league Wednesday as the Utah Jazz (38-12) will travel down the mountain and head to the desert to take on the Phoenix Suns (35-14). Both teams are 9-1 in their last 10 games.
Utah was winners of 9 straight before being defeated on the road Monday in Dallas 111-103. Phoenix is currently on a 6 game winning streak after holding off Houston 133-130.
These teams have only met once this season and it came all the way back on New Years Eve. Phoenix won on the road 106-95 as they were able to outshoot the Jazz from deep 17/33 to their 12/34.
Utah has shown no signs of slowing down as they still hold the leagues best record at 38-12. The Jazz were riding a 9 game winning streak entering this week but were defeated Monday by Dallas 111-103.
The Jazz were down 18 points entering the 4th quarter and were able to keep the final score respectable thanks to a 10 point advantage late. The difference came from the 3 point line as Utah had one of their worst shooing nights of the season going just 12/44 (27.3%) to the Mavericks’ 23/49 (46.9%).
Look out for Donovan Mitchell to have a solid game here, as he is having another excellent season putting up 25.6 points per game on average as well as plenty of production in the other statistical categories.
Phoenix has quietly climbed to the top of the pack in the loaded Western Conference, boasting the leagues 2nd best record of 35-14. The only better record belongs to the Utah Jazz but a win Wednesday would help the Suns close the 2.5 game differential.
The Suns are winners of 6 straight games, most recently on Monday with a 133-130 road win in Houston. It was another lackluster defensive performance but they were able to do enough on offense to get the win.
Devin Booker dropped a game high 36 points with 6 rebounds and 6 assists. Former #1 pick Deandre Ayton recorded a monster 27 point and 11 rebound double-double in the winning effort.
Frank Kaminsky is out due to health and safety protocols while Abdel Nader will miss his ninth game due to a knee injury.

Free Utah Jazz vs. Phoenix Suns NBA Prediction:
This game will be a wire to wire showdown between the top two teams in the league. Both sides have won 9 of their last 10 games and know a win here could go a long way down the line with playoff positioning.
Utah had a poor shooting night on Monday in their loss whereas Phoenix was scorching in their win. I expect both sides to resort back their norms and have a much more even performance against each other.
This game will be decided late and in that instance I like the ball in the hands of point god Chris Paul. He has been crucial in this teams development and where they sit today. His late game closing ability has swung many games in their favor this year and I see that happening here as well. Suns at home.
