Preview: Suns vs Jazz

New, comments

Howdy all. Big game tonight huh? You going? Are you at least watching? You heard it's a big game, right?

A big game deserving of a REALLY great preview. Sucks though that I am slammed today saving the world working for the man grinding one out stuck behind a desk exercising my telephone skills.

So, here's what a got as fast as I can bang it out.

  • The Jazz are a very good team at home: 30 - 6
  • The Jazz are poor on the road: 14 - 20
  • The Jazz are healthy now
  • The Jazz as Gentry described are the best half court execution team
  • The Jazz move off the ball well (see above)
  • The Suns need to play heads up defense which means keeping your eyes on your man and not the ball
  • I guess Shaq will cover Boozer and Barnes will be on Okur? Yikes
  • Ronnie Brewer is very good. Very very good
  • The Jazz willl be playing their 16th back to back set of the season, they're 2-13 in the second game

This will be a tough game for the Suns but a winnable one. One might say Must Winnable.

Lots of Suns on the radio today. Audio courtesy of Sports 620 KTAR
