Utah Jazz at Phoenix Suns Game Thread: Ain't nobody gonna stop Gordon Hayward tonight

Tonight is a big game for the Utah Jazz, as they tip off against former assistant coach Jeff Hornacek 's team, the Phoenix Suns. Utah and Phoenix are kinda linked. They are currently the #10 and #11 teams in the West. Both are looking at the playoffs from the outside. And in both cases are a few years away from making a big push back into the playoffs and hopefully making a statement. And right now they are separated by 3.5 games in the West standings. If the Jazz win tonight that becomes only 2.5 games, with six more to play.

Phoenix really impressed last season, but then had to blow things up. Utah is making a name for itself with defense right now. But the big question is "Wait, do we have more fans than the Suns?"

Nope. But it looks that way.

Yeah. The Suns have lost five straight, and this may be their last chance at a win tonight. Their remaining schedule is rough. They'll be going crazy tonight. It's not going to be easy.
