On the back end of their second back to back in just five games, the Utah Jazz looked slow against a Phoenix Suns team who seem invigorated after the departure of Earl Watson.
The Suns out-rebounded the Jazz 55 to 44 and also had less turnovers with 16 compared to the Jazz who had 24. This could be seen as effort plays, but more likely it is the sign of a tired team. The Jazz will need as much rest as possible to play well against the Los Angeles Lakers on Saturday to avoid another loss to a non playoff team.
All in all a frustrating night for the Jazz looking to bounce back from a tough loss to the LA Clippers.
