With the Utah Jazz mired in a poor stretch, and missing all of their starting lineup against Phoenix, the deep reserves came out and made it a shockingly competitive game by simply playing like they cared — sending a message in the process. sltrib.com/sports/jazz/20…1:29 AM

I don’t know if it’s realistic to hope Denver can catch Utah in the standings, but it isn’t impossible.

Suns up 11, as CP3 has scored 15 in the 4th on the usual Chris Paul stuff — some midrange, some threes, some foul grift. Meanwhile, Jazz’s hot 3-point shooting ran out, they’ve yet to hit one in the 4th. – 11:07 PM
Gerald Bourguet @GeraldBourguet
Season-high 27 points on 10-15 FG for Chris Paul here tonight. He just decided this one was over, putting up 15 points on 5-5 FG – 11:07 PM

Great performance by the Jazz, but the wheels have come off in the 4Q — been outscored 26-13 so far, as Suns shoot 9-17 to Utah’s 3-13. 111-100 with 3:11 to go. – 11:07 PM

Sarah Todd @NBASarah
In Toronto, the Jazz had a lead at the half and then were picked apart through the latter half of the game. Tonight they’re gotten better as the night has gone on. Suns retook the lead but this is still a one possession game in the 4th and that’s already great for this group – 10:53 PM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
These are the minutes that makes Phoenix the best team in the league. They are the best closing group in the NBA by a mile. To beat them, you have to do it in the first 43 minutes.more often than not, they are winning the last five – 10:52 PM
Eric Walden @tribjazz
Suns have responded — 12-4 run gives them a 98-95 lead with 7:50 to play. Defensive intensity turned up, and Chris Paul is doing Chris Paul things. – 10:51 PM

With that FT, Rudy Gay ties Chris Webber for 97th on the NBA’s all-time scoring list with 17,182 points. – 10:49 PM
Duane Rankin @DuaneRankin
Johnson with 14 after back-to-back buckets, but again, #Suns having issues with small ball lineup.
Maybe he’s worried about rebounding. That’s why Biyombo is out there, but keep eye on this.
#Suns cut lead to two as Paul scores. – 10:49 PM
Kellan Olson @KellanOlson
Four fouls for Booker and McGee. Booker is going to get a slight rest here with the Jazz up 4. Utah continuing to remain aggressive offensively and getting better looks this half. – 10:48 PM
Eric Walden @tribjazz
Jazz did not realize Gay was only getting 2 FTs instead of 3 because his foot was on the line on that shot. Got beat for an easy layup as a result. – 10:48 PM

Johnson to the rim.
Bucket. Fouled.

End 3Q: Jazz 87, Suns 85. Forrest 15p, House 14p, Butler and Clarkson, 13p, Paschall 12p. Jazz drop another 30+ point quarter on Phoenix. I don’t know if they hold on, but this has been fun to watch. – 10:40 PM
Andy Larsen @andyblarsen
Jazz lead the Suns 87-85 after 3Q. Utah’s making half of their threes, never sending the Suns to the line, and forcing a ton of Suns turnovers. It’s a good formula! – 10:40 PM
Kellan Olson @KellanOlson
87-85 Jazz. Suns’ high scorer is Booker with 33 while the Jazz’s is Forrest with only 15. Would have expected the scoring balance to come more from Phoenix tonight but alas here we are – 10:39 PM

HALFTIME: Suns 58, Jazz 56. Well, most of Utah’s players found the competitiveness that Quin was looking for. Good energy from Forrest (11p, 2r), House (7p, 4r), Gay (7p, 2r), Paschall (8p). JC’s deep shot has been off (1-5), but he’s 3-3 elsewhere. 35p 2Q by the Jazz. – 10:00 PM
Andy Larsen @andyblarsen
Suns up 58-56 at the half.
Suns didn’t go to the free-throw line once. Trent Forrest has 11, he’s been very good. Jared Butler’s been nice, too: he has 8. Phoenix had 10 turnovers in that half, too. – 10:00 PM

11 for Trent Forrest. 9 for Clarkson. 8 each for Butler and Paschall. 7 each for Gay and House – 10:00 PM

Unexpectedly, Jazz are taking big advantage of a less-than-locked-in Suns defense — shooting 51.6% overall and 7-16 from 3. That last JC bucket gets them within 48-40 with 5:41 left 2Q, prompting a Monty Williams timeout. – 9:46 PM

Jazz going 3-7 from deep and forcing Phoenix into 3 turnovers is the only reason this game is as close as 26-16 with 2:24 left 1Q. – 9:28 PM

Unique element of this batch of Suns injuries that we haven’t seen this year is Payton was used essentially as another wing when Phoenix got shorthanded. Now he’s running the offense so we’re going to see a fair bit of Wainright tonight I think. Smith at the 4 again probably. – 7:53 PM
