Suns cruise past Jazz, head into playoffs as No. 3 seed

SALT LAKE CITY (NBA.com exclusive) -- Coming off a year in which they missed the playoffs, the Phoenix Suns had their doubters before the 2009-10 season started, and when they struggled in December and January.

Now, the Suns are the team no one wants to face in the NBA playoffs.

Phoenix showed why in a surprisingly easy 100-86 win over the Utah Jazz on the final day of the regular season on Wednesday. The Suns (54-28) built a big lead by playing great defense, making 3-pointers and getting a big boost from their bench while cruising against the depleted Jazz (53-29).

Phoenix clinched the third seed in the Western Conference with the victory and will play Portland in a series that begins Sunday. Utah is the No. 5 seed and will open the playoffs at Denver on Saturday.

"It was a great way to finish the regular season," said Phoenix guard Steve Nash. "For a team that was picked by many to be on the outside looking in in the playoffs, or at the bottom of the playoff race, to finish third in the West is rewarding. The most important thing is we're playing well and heading into the playoffs."

The Jazz were without Carlos Boozer, who suffered a strained right-side oblique muscle in Utah's win over Golden State on Tuesday night. They were also without Andrei Kirilenko. He sat for the 15th time in 17 games because of a strained left calf. Without those two players, Utah had little chance against the red-hot Suns.

"You take [Boozer's] 20 and 10 off the boards it makes things hard, but that's a part of life and we deal with it," said Jazz coach Jerry Sloan.

It made things harder for Utah than anyone could have imagined.

The Jazz were out of whack offensively throughout the contest. The tone of the game was set early with Utah missing seven of its first eight shots, and the Jazz's shooting percentage never got in the 40s.

Phoenix isn't known for its defense, but it was exceptional. The Suns forced 19 turnovers and held Utah to 37.5 percent shooting for the game.

"I think our defense turned it up," Nash said.

The Suns especially did late in the first quarter and for much of the second. They took advantage after Utah's Paul Millsap, Boozer's replacement in the starting lineup, picked up his second foul nine minutes into the game and had to sit. Utah had to finish the first quarter with Deron Williams, Wesley Matthews, Kosta Koufos, Kyrylo Fesenko and Kyle Korver on the floor.

The Suns capitalized, closing the period on a 9-2 run to take a 30-25 lead.

Phoenix put the game away in the second quarter with a 15-1 run that spanned four minutes. The Suns held the Jazz to two baskets and eight points in the first nine minutes of the second period. Phoenix took a commanding 45-28 lead when Goran Dragic scored a layup in transition.

The Suns were able to take control of the game with their second unit. Their bench outscored Utah's 30-2 in the first half and 50-13 for the game. Phoenix got a balanced scoring effort with six players in double figures. Amar'e Stoudemire led the way with 20 points and seven rebounds.

"I thought this was going to be a really tough game," Nash said. "We came in prepared and we played well. It wasn't as tough as we thought, but we know that now the real season starts and anything is possible."

No one would have considered the Suns an NBA title contender when they went 14-18 in December and January. But they're now the league's hottest team, having won 14 of their last 16 games.

Coach Alvin Gentry said reasons for Phoenix's turnaround and hot streak are that the players are accountable, know their roles and never point fingers.

"We've got great leaders," Gentry said. "Between Amar'e and Steve and Grant (Hill) they do a great job of leading this team. And then we got great followers. The guys fall in place. The second unit at the end of the night is the one who got us separation. They do a good job. They totally believe in each other."

And they believe they might just stick around a while in the playoffs.

"We just have to continue to play the way we're playing on both ends of the floor," Nash said. "If we don't turn the ball over and we rebound, we're going to be tough to beat."
