The Utah Jazz host the Phoenix Suns tonight. This is a game the Jazz have to win because every win counts now, and it's high time they stopped losing to teams much worse than them. The Suns aren't going to roll over for the, as they are on a relatively hot streak right now. They also have B.Knight back, and are as healthy as can be right now. They are motivated and encouraged by their head coach Earl Watson and are willing to give their fans something to root for, and a road win against a tough Jazz team would definitely be something to cheer for. The Jazz are without Dante, Alec, and Gordon, some would argue those three guys should be starting in a perfect world. All three will be watching.

It should be a tough game, but the Jazz need to start being a tough team -- and take care of business at home against a Phoenix club that doesn't even have 20 wins by March.
