Utah Jazz vs Phoenix Suns by Rahul
The impressive backcourt of Thomas, Bledsoe and Dragic netted 50% of the Phoenix points last night while they also got impressive contributions from the likes of Morris brothers, Len and Green. Phoenix will be on the 2nd night of a back to back, but will aim to put in a similar performance like last night. What was impressive about Phoenix is they but in a real defensive shift last night by out-rebounding, out-blocking and committed less turnovers v Spurs.
Utah Jazz are surely a team that have great opportunities to become a future top team, much like the Thunder were when they initially drafted Durant, Harden and Westbrook. They have a talented bunch themselves in Burke, Hayward and Burks who look to be great stars in the future. The Jazz have started 0-2 against the Rockets and the Mavericks and now take on another Western Conference rival in the Suns, with whom they split their 4 meetings 2-2 last year.
The Suns will be looking to try and race to an early lead to grab as many wins as they possibly can, to take an early lead in the competitive Western conference in the aim to make the playoffs this year. I like the way Suns play an up-tempo style and they should be able to score against a team that beat them in their last pre-season game plus 53% in opponent field goal percentage till now.
