Jazz vs. Suns Betting Prediction

Mike Conley's absence tonight does not bode well for the Utah Jazz, especially considering their general struggles with defense this season. A loss here will mark the Jazz's fourth straight defeat in an increasingly hit-and-miss season for the Utah outfit.

The Suns, meanwhile, are coming into this one hot off three straight wins. All-time great point guard Chris Paul's status for tonight is of some alarm but even if he is unable to play, the team still beat the Pistons last night without him. Against a struggling, injury-laden team like the Jazz, Paul or no Paul, this should be the Suns' night.

Prediction: Suns -7 (-107)
