Through 1 Quarter

The Phoenix Suns can’t call it a day yet, but they are winning as expected. They have emerged as the frontrunner after one quarter and are ahead of the Utah Jazz 33-24.

Shooting guard Devin Booker has taken over for Phoenix, currently boasting 17 points (52% of their total) and two dimes along with four rebounds. Utah hasn’t had any offensive standouts so far with all players held to seven points or fewer.

What to Know

The Utah Jazz haven’t won a contest against the Phoenix Suns since Oct. 28 of 2019, but they’ll be looking to end the drought on Monday. The Jazz might have tired legs after a matchup yesterday as they head on the road against Phoenix at 9 p.m. ET Jan. 24 at Footprint Center. The Suns should still be riding high after a victory, while Utah will be looking to regain their footing.

Utah was close but no cigar on Sunday as they fell 94-92 to the Golden State Warriors. Point guard Jordan Clarkson had a pretty forgettable game, playing for 28 minutes but putting up just nine points on 3-for-13 shooting.

Meanwhile, Phoenix was able to grind out a solid win over the Indiana Pacers this past Saturday, winning 113-103. Phoenix can attribute much of their success to point guard Chris Paul, who dropped a double-double on 18 points and 16 dimes, and center Bismack Biyombo, who posted a double-double on 21 points and 13 rebounds along with five assists. That’s the third consecutive game in which Paul has had at least 11 assists.

The Jazz are expected to win this handily, but they should have beaten the Houston Rockets Jan. 19 easily too and instead slipped up with a 116-111. In other words, don’t count the Suns out just yet.
