Game Thread - Phoenix Suns @ Utah Jazz

We've been looking at this game as the big one for a couple of months now and it's finally here. Obviously with the injuries we have right now, we wish we could be a game up in the win column right now so that this game wouldn't have as much significance.

You've been pounded all day with information as to what's at stake tonight. The stakes couldn't be higher. A win and the chances of the Jazz going deep in the playoffs go way, way up. Lose, and well, let's not go there.

I've talked about the 2004 team before and I hope the team channels that same mojo tonight. That was a team that went all out and played unselfish basketball.

We've seen the Jazz this year come out and play with seemingly no sense of urgency. We've seen them get down large and then fight back, even against this Suns team.

However, I believe the Jazz will want it more tonight. The Suns aren't in it to lose of course but the Jazz will have a little more focus and a little more je ne sais quoi.

Deron can cement his leadership tonight with a ninja outing. It's going to be on him.

The ESA will be rocking. I hope it's rocking wherever you're at. It's going to be rocking in here.
