Jazz-Suns Preview

(AP) -- Utah and Phoenix didn't appear so different heading into their first meeting a month and a half ago, but that winter solstice contest foreshadowed the Suns' dark days ahead.

There's no sign of improvement heading into Saturday night's home game against the Jazz, who will try to extend their season-best win streak with more stingy defense.

Prior to their Dec. 21 meeting, Utah was 11-14 and Phoenix 12-17. Including that 110-89 win and a victory three days before, the Jazz have gone 14-11 and put themselves in the playoff discussion. Dating to the Suns' game the day before, they're a league-worst 2-21, and every other NBA team has at least five wins in that time.
