Two teams sitting in and out of the playoff places of the West are clashing tonight, when the Utah Jazz (30-24), looking to bounce back after their latest defeat, are hosting the worse team of the conference, the Phoenix Suns (11-44), who have won only once in their last 13 games.

Phoenix Suns have a 11-44 record (24-31 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the last place of the West. They have lost 12 of their last 13 matches and in their last game they lost at home against the Rockets with a 110-118 score, beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Devin Booker with 24.9 ppg, adding 3.8 boards and a team high 6.7 dimes per game. He is followed by TJ Warren with 18 ppg and 4 boards per game but he is out with an injury.
In their four meetings last season the Jazz led the Suns 3-1 wins, winning both home games by an average of 19 points. Jazz have a 16-10 home record, while the Suns are 4-23 on the road. Jazz are better both offensively, scoring 108.8 ppg to Suns’ 106.3 and defensively, allowing 106.1 pgg to Suns’ 115.8. Both teams have identical field goal percentage (45.9%), while Jazz have a better 3-point percentage (34.3% to 33.3%). Jazz are better in boards grabbed (45.1 to 39.9), in dimes made (24.9 to 23.9) and in turnovers committed (14.9 to 15.4).
