The Utah Jazz and Phoenix Suns meet Wednesday in NBA action at the Talking Stick Resort Arena.
The Utah Jazz need a victory here after losing three of their last four games. The Utah Jazz are averaging 109.9 points on 46 percent shooting and allowing 106.8 points on 45.4 percent shooting. Donovan Mitchell is averaging 23.5 points and 4.1 assists while Rudy Gobert is averaging 15.3 points and 12.8 rebounds. Ricky Rubio is the third double-digit scorer and Jae Crowder is grabbing five rebounds. The Utah Jazz are shooting 34.8 percent from beyond the arc and 73.2 percent from the free throw line. The Utah Jazz are allowing 35.9 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 45.9 rebounds per game. The Utah Jazz have lost four of their last six road games.
The Phoenix Suns look for another win after winning five of their last seven games. The Phoenix Suns are averaging 107 points on 45.7 percent shooting and allowing 115.9 points on 48.2 percent shooting. Devin Booker is averaging 25.1 points and 6.7 assists while TJ Warren is averaging 18 points and four rebounds. Deandre Ayton is the third double-digit scorer and Kelly Oubre Jr. is grabbing 4.9 rebounds. The Phoenix Suns are shooting 32.9 percent from beyond the arc and 78.2 percent from the free throw line. The Phoenix Suns are allowing 36.5 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 40.3 rebounds per game. The Phoenix Suns have split their last six home games.
The Jazz are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games, 15-5-1 ATS in their last 21 games following a ATS loss and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Suns are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 home games, 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games playing on 2 days rest and 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The favorite is 9-4-1 ATS in the last 14 meetings and the under is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings. The under is 4-1 in Suns last 5 overall. The under is 5-2 in Jazz last 7 overall.
The Utah Jazz have won each of the last four meetings against the Phoenix Suns and all four of those games were decided by double digits. In fact, those games were won by an average of 24.5 points. The Suns have been able to string wins together lately, but we know this team by now and when the losses come, they're usually ugly. The Suns are still 31-37 ATS on the season and are still giving teams whatever they want offensively, especially at home where they're allowing 48.7 percent shooting. I'll lay the chalk with the Jazz, as the history suggests it and it's only a matter of time before the Suns return to the Suns we all know and love.
