“bull****. And I stand by that.” pic.twitter.com/MrY0hS9e4o1:41 AM

Eric Walden @tribjazz
Hassan Whiteside also took issue with the suggestion that he’s not invested in the team: “It’s a competitive game — guys care. If I didn’t care … I care. I could be with my son right now, he’s got COVID.” – 1:38 AM

On his late foul, Hassan Whiteside said that Jalen Smith jumped out in front of him and fell down.
“That call was bullshit and I stand by that.” – 1:33 AM
Ben Anderson @BensHoops
Hassan Whiteside was very clearly frustrated after the loss and his late technical foul.
Said he’s not back to 100% after having COVID for two weeks, also said his son has COVID right now.
Clearly weighing heavy on him. Understandably. – 1:33 AM
Sarah Todd @NBASarah
Asked if he’s at 100% and Hassan Whiteside said “hell no.” and talked about how he was in a basement and sick for 10 days.
Also mentioned his son has COVID and things have been tough. “I’m human.” – 1:32 AM

Nice win for Utah State over San Diego State in Logan. Aztecs are not what they’ve been, but still capable, dangerous.

I’m now raising my list of players the Jazz need at the deadline to three:
1. Someone to guard guards
2. Someone with length who can rotate, rebound and ideally shoot
3. A rim-protecting center to either push Whiteside or replace him
It’s a tall order — but I think doable. – 12:51 AM

Brutal 5% result in Suns/Jazz. Thought we’d see a much faster pace but Utah allowed Phoenix to dictate and rode with Whiteside over Gay/Paschall at the 5. Started 7-0 on Wed. NBA card so I’m disappointed to finish 8-2. Blazers rout Mavs. CP3 assist prop a dud too. On to Thursday. – 12:44 AM

Suns win despite registering only 14 assists, the second-lowest total in the Monty Williams era. Really is remarkable how good this group has become at winning. – 12:37 AM
Eric Walden @tribjazz
FINAL: Suns 105, Jazz 97. A nice comeback try, powered by Mike Conley (16/10) and Jordan Clarkson (26/5), but they fell apart during a late 8-0 stretch. Hassan had 16/11 but had some really bad moments. And the Jazz ultimately had no answers for Booker (43/12/4) and CP3 (21/4/5). – 12:37 AM

The Suns are 38-9, their best start in franchise history. They are:

Andy Larsen @andyblarsen
Suns win 105-97. It was a Jazz good comeback, but an incredibly undisciplined finish to the game.
Devin Booker had 43/12/3, was a +18.
Clarkson had 26/5/2, he was a +2.
Conley: 16p/10a — was maybe the hardest playing player on the floor.
Jazz play Grizzlies on Friday. – 12:37 AM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
32.6 seconds remaining. The Jazz trail the Suns 105-97…..nothing wrong with the effort tonight from Utah. Just not enough firepower on both ends. When you have a specific weakness, Paul and Booker exploit it and boy did they do that in the fourth – 12:35 AM

Utah coach Craig Smith: “Disappointing no doubt, after I thought we played better in the last four games.” – 12:35 AM

Suns up 74-64 after 3Q. Jazz only have an 88 ORtg tonight… just not what you want. It’s been mostly due to missed shots around the rim: Jazz just 10/20 on shots within 4 ft, only 4/15 between 4 and 15 feet. They miss Mitchell and Gobert’s finishing. – 11:54 PM

That’s a bad OReb to give up there, I thought. With Booker, you know a pull-up is likely, so I thought there was time to bracket Smith front and back. And then I thought Royce, while undersized, could have boxed out a bit more. – 11:46 PM

Who are you expecting to get it going offensively along with Devin Booker, who has 26 of #Suns 50 points at halftime with Phoenix up, 50-48, over Jazz. – 11:22 PM

#Suns 50 #Jazz 48 H
PHX: Booker 26 (10-of-15 FGs). Rest of Suns (11-of-26). Led by as many as 21.
UTA: Clarkson 10 (9 Jazz players have scored). 19 bench points.
Ayton (ankle), McGee (knee), Payne (wrist), Crowder (wrist), Mitchell (concussion protocols) and Gobert (calf) OUT. – 11:18 PM

Games like this are why I have a hard time advocating for Devin Booker or Chris Paul as the Suns’ MVP frontrunner/top All-NBA candidate – 11:12 PM

Two big signs the offense is struggling:
— Only 1 assist for someone outside of Booker and Paul
— Only 9 3PAs – 11:12 PM

HALFTIME: Suns 50, Jazz 48. Utah outscores Phoenix 30-11 in 2Q to make a game of it. Jazz shot 12-21 in the period, while Phoenix went just 5-17. Turnover battle has evened out, as Jazz have 8, but Suns are up to 6. Devin Booker has 26/7/4. JC leads Utah with 10. – 11:11 PM
David Locke @DLocke09
That might turn out to be the most important quarter of the year for the Jazz. The defense without Rudy Gobert just held the Suns to 5 of 17 shooting and 11 points. If the Jazz can learn to defend without Gobert as the principal to the defense it would be game changing – 11:11 PM

Suns outscored by the Jazz 30-11 in the second quarter. That cancels out a 39-18 first quarter for Phoenix and now it’s a brand new two-point ball game at the half. – 11:10 PM
Andy Larsen @andyblarsen
Suns up 50-48 at the half. Tremendous 2Q from the Jazz, who outscored the Suns 30-11 in the quarter, and it was a real team effort. Suns can go on these scoring droughts without Ayton, it feels like — they become really perimeter dependent. – 11:10 PM

Halftime: PHX 50, UTA 48
Booker: 26 Pts, 7 Reb, 4 Ast, 10-15 FG
Bridges: 6 Pts, 3-4 FG

Clarkson: 10 Pts, 4-9 FG
Jazz outscore Suns 30-11 in the 2Q. Horrendous effort. – 11:09 PM
Ryan Miller @millerjryan
Jazz hold the Suns to just 11 points in the 2nd quarter and come roaring back. What was once a 21-point deficit is now just 2 going into the break.
All things considered, might be the most impressive quarter of the season. – 11:09 PM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
Impressive comeback by the Jazz. Terrific second quarter for them. They trail the Suns 50-48…..and they got back into the game defensively. Stop after stop – 11:09 PM
Chris Fedor @ChrisFedor
This wasn’t the Nets without KD. It wasn’t the Heat without Butler and Bam. It wasn’t the center-less Utah Jazz. It was the streaking Bucks who were 18-3 with Giannis, Holiday and Middleton in the lineup together. And it was still a #Cavs rout
