The Phoenix Suns (6-6) will be playing against the Utah Jazz (4-8) at Delta Center, Salt Lake City, Utah on Sunday at 6 PM. AZ Time. You can watch the game on Arizona’s Family 3TV and NBATV, and listen to it on 98.7 FM.
Phoenix will be looking to extend their winning streak to three games as they face Utah for the second game in their mini-series. Although they won on Friday, allowing 128 points to the Jazz was not ideal, highlighting the need for improved defense. With an evolving starting lineup due to injuries, the Suns are looking to create stability, with the recent tweak of starting Grayson Allen and Eric Gordon showing positive results.
Injuries will impact the starting lineups, with Phoenix’s Yuta Watanabe questionable and Bradley Beal and Damion Lee ruled out. Utah’s Walker Kessler is also out due to injury.
The Suns have had the upper hand in the regular season series with the Jazz, winning both games. There will be a focus on adjustments in tactics between the two teams, especially in the coverage of players like Devin Booker and Durant.
Key areas for a Suns win would be ball security, defensive connectedness, and 3-point shooting. The prediction for the game is a 118-109 win for the Suns, extending their streak to three wins and pushing them back above .500.
Noteworthy lineups from the last game showed strong performances from the Suns’ starters as well as a bench lineup. The success of these lineups signals promise for the team’s chemistry and performance on the court going forward.
