Notebook: Jazz 109, Suns 86


Matt Payne, for NBA.com
Posted Thu Feb 27, 2014 12:35 AM - Updated Thu Feb 27, 2014 12:35 AM

THE FACT: The 23-point win was Utah's largest margin of victory this season.

THE LEAD: Gordon Hayward shook off a 1-for-5 start to put together a near triple-double while leading the Jazz to a 109-86 victory over the short-handed Phoenix Suns Wednesday night at EnergySolutions Arena.

Hayward finished with 17 points (7-for-13 shooting), 10 rebounds and nine assists before being pulled with just over six minutes remaining in the game. Derrick Favors, in his second game back from a hip injury, added 15 points, seven rebounds and two blocks, and Richard Jefferson scored 17 points, including seven straight during a key third-quarter run for the Jazz (21-36).

Phoenix played without its starting backcourt of Goran Dragic (ankle) and Eric Bledsoe (knee) due to injuries and lacked the offensive firepower to keep up with a full-strength Jazz squad. Gerald Green paced the Suns (33-24) with 17 points, while rookie Archie Goodwin added 16 points, seven rebounds and two steals off the bench.

QUOTABLE: "I thought Gordon fought his way back and had a great game for us. I left him in a little longer ... to try to get that last [assist], but he played 37 minutes and I didn't want to take a chance with him."
-- Utah coach Tyrone Corbin

THE STAT: The Jazz owned the interior, outscoring the Suns 50-36 in the paint thanks to Favors' overpowering post play, along with Hayward and Alec Burks' ability to get into the lane and score from close range.

TURNING POINT: Utah took a comfortable lead into the half, then went on a 9-0 run late in the third quarter to increase its lead to 14. Another 6-0 Jazz run at the beginning of the fourth quarter iced the game. The Suns were playing for the second consecutive night, and Utah took advantage of Phoenix's tired legs in the second half.

HOT: Utah's Diante Garrett got a measure of revenge against his former team Wednesday night, going off for a career-high 15 points on 6-for-9 shooting (including 3-for-4 from 3-pointer range) in 21 minutes off the bench. Garrett scored 12 points in the first five minutes of the fourth quarter to help put the game away.

NOT: Phoenix's starting frontcourt was underwhelming against the Jazz, as Channing Frye (3-for-8 shooting), P.J. Tucker (1-for-4) and Miles Plumlee (3-for-8) combined for only 16 points and 12 rebounds. The Suns needed somebody to step up in the absence of Dragic and Bledsoe, and nobody was up to the task.

QUOTABLE II: "When a team's up, it's easier to shoot -- it's always easier to do stuff. We played last night, and being shorthanded, it looked like we just ran out of gas."
-- Phoenix coach Jeff Hornacek

IN THE ARENA: Wednesday night's game represented the season's final reunion for the two head coaches -- Corbin and Hornacek were teammates in both Phoenix and Utah, then later worked together as assistant coaches under former Jazz coach Jerry Sloan before assuming their current positions. Hornacek, whose No. 14 jersey is hanging in the rafters at EnergySolutions Arena, drew a rousing cheer when he was introduced before the game.

NOTABLE: The two teams split their season series 2-2. ... Ish Smith got his first start of the season (in place of Dragic) and finished with 13 points, five assists and eight rebounds for the Suns. ... Utah had a season-high seven players reach double figures in scoring. ... The Suns tied a season low with 86 points.

UP NEXT: For the Suns, Friday vs. New Orleans, Sunday vs. Atlanta, Tuesday vs. L.A. Clippers. For the Jazz, Friday at Cleveland, Sunday at Indiana, Monday at Milwaukee.
