For the second straight preseason matchup, the Phoenix Suns will see a stripped down version of their opponent.
Two days after the Suns scored a 91-85 home victory over a San Antonio Spurs squad minus LaMarcus Aldridge, Pau Gasol, Manu Ginobili, Danny Green, Patty Mills, and Tony Parker, Phoenix welcomes a hobbled Utah Jazz team to Talking Stick Resort Arena.
