Recap

Jazz erase 17-point second-half deficit in win over Suns


By Andrew Aragon, for NBA.com

SALT LAKE CITY (NBA.com exclusive) -- For almost three quarters on Monday night, the Utah Jazz tried to beat the Phoenix Suns at their own game. They ran with them, chucked up 3-pointers early in possessions and played soft defense.

It wasn't quite working out.

The Jazz fell behind by 17 points late in the third quarter before getting back to their style of play, rallying for a 124-115 victory over the Suns. It was Utah's seventh win in its last eight games.

Utah (26-18) started the game hot, making seven of its first nine shots and quickly built a 19-7 lead. But Jazz rookie Wesley Matthews, a key player in Utah's victory, said it might have been a trap set by Phoenix (26-20).

"It was almost like bait," he said. "We kind of fell into their trap for the first three quarters. We were able to withstand their run and get back to doing what we were doing."

The Suns put on quite a display in the second quarter and much of the third. They scored 45 points and shot 8-for-11 from 3-point range in the second period. They built their lead to 96-79 with 2:38 left in the third quarter before Steve Nash picked up his fourth foul.

That was the turning point.

Utah scored the final 12 points of the third to make its deficit a manageable five points going into the fourth. Having Nash out of the game helped, and the Jazz got back to what's worked for them in their recent hot streak. They helped each other on defense, got stops, moved the ball and shared it on offense while finally figuring out how to beat what had been an effective Phoenix zone defense.

"That's why you keep playing," said Jazz coach Jerry Sloan. "You never know what's going to happen. A lot of times you get in a situation like that and you think, 'We'll get them next time.'"

A 17-3 run in the fourth put the game away for the Jazz, giving them a 119-109 lead. Matthews scored seven points during the spurt and made what may have been the play of the game. He stole the ball from Goran Dragic, and then drove to the other end and drew a foul. He made both free throws to give Utah a 115-109 lead with 3:46 left.

Matthews finished with a career-high 21 points and five rebounds, and he made three 3-pointers.

"He's been terrific," Sloan said. "He keeps plugging away, works hard in practice, works hard at shooting and he wants to be a good player."

Matthews' playing time has been sporadic the last couple of weeks, so he has to make the most of opportunities when he gets them.

"I love this," Matthews said. "I'm so blessed right now to be in this situation, this opportunity. I have never been the type to back down from anything and I think that's what's got me to where I am."

The Jazz needed the rookie's toughness to help dig them out of a huge hole. The Suns were rolling in the middle two quarters with Dragic leading the way. His career best coming into Monday's game was 20 points, and he topped that before halftime, scoring 24 of his game-high 32 points prior to the break.

The Suns made 17 3-pointers, which was a season-high and an opponent franchise record against the Jazz. Phoenix went ice cold, however, late in the game, scoring just 19 points in the final 14 minutes. It was a familiar story for the Suns, who have lost five straight on the road and 12 of their last 13 road games.

"It was a tough loss for us," Nash said. "We just couldn't get into our offense (in the game's final 14 minutes). They pushed us out, we had no penetration and we were just jacking up shots or turning it over."

Carlos Boozer had 21 points and 20 rebounds, recording his fifth career 20-20 game and third since joining the Jazz. Deron Williams had 18 points and 11 assists.

Andrei Kirilenko continued to be Utah's "X-factor," as Boozer likes to call him. He scored a team-high 25 points, and filled up the stat sheet with six rebounds, three blocked shots, two assists and a steal. His biggest contributions came in ways that don't show up on the stat sheet with his sticky and disruptive defensive play.

"You can't really judge him by his stats and his points or anything like that," said Phoenix coach Alvin Gentry. "He just has a huge influence on the game from a defensive standpoint. He has the ability to almost guard all five positions."

Nash had 15 points and 15 assists for the Suns, giving him 8,013 in his career and making him the eighth player in NBA history to surpass 8,000 assists.

The Jazz moved up to fifth place in the Western Conference standings with the win and San Antonio's loss to Chicago.
