Game Story

SALT LAKE CITY (Ticker) -- Mehmet Okur and Raja Bell gave the Utah Jazz something the Phoenix Suns desperately needed - production off the bench. Okur had 21 points and a season-high 17 rebounds and Bell added 19 as the Jazz posted their second upset victory in a row, 115-108 over the Suns, who had a seven-game winning streak snapped. Playing one day after using just seven players in a 122-107 home win over Miami, Phoenix once again got virtually nothing from its backups. Steven Hunter and Casey Jacobsen were the only reserves to log more than four minutes as Utah held a 67-6 edge in bench points. "Utah's a pretty deep team," Suns point guard Steve Nash said. "They've got Raja Bell coming off the bench, and he's basically a starter. He lit us up tonight. Everybody from the perimeter got it going for them. "I thought they played extremely hard, much harder than we did. I don't know if it was fatigue, but they certainly played harder than we did. We never seemed to have any spark." The fatigue began to show at the end of the third quarter. After Joe Johnson and Amare Stoudemire converted consecutive three-point plays to cut the deficit to 83-82, the Jazz scored six straight points to close the period. Curtis Borchardt hit a pair of free throws before reserve Howard Eisley made a driving layup with three seconds left in the quarter. Hunter lazily tried get the ball inbounds rookie Kris Humphries made the steal and layup at the buzzer to push the lead to 89-82. "We had a melt-down in the last 35 seconds of the third quarter that killed us," Nash said. "We gave up a couple of baskets and then turned it over in the last second to give them another layup. That was big." "We forced it a little too much and everybody tried to win the game by themselves," Suns coach Mike D'Antoni said. "Those are normal things to do when you're tired and you're not into it. We made a great surge of energy to come back and get to one down, and right at the end of the quarter we blew about four possessions. I think that was the turning point." Quentin Richardson scored 24 points and Nash collected 22 and 11 assists for Phoenix, which got no closer than eight in the fourth quarter until Richardson's meaningless three-pointer in the game's waning seconds. "We've got to try to find ways to win games even when we don't have our legs," Nash said. "It would have been nice to get it going defensively, but we never did, and they got their confidence going and they gave it to us." Matt Harpring scored 16 points and reserve Raul Lopez contributed 14 for Utah, which has snapped a nine-game losing streak with wins over the top two teams in the NBA - San Antonio and Phoenix. "This is important for us, especially since we were struggling so much the last month or so," Bell said. "It's important that we start learning to win, and just get that winning feeling back about our team." Okur, who scored the game-winning basket Monday against San Antonio, grabbed a career-high 10 offensive boards as the Jazz scored 26 second-chance points. "I think (Okur) is the reason, or one of the biggest reasons, why we've been able to play better down this last stretch," Bell said. "He won the game for us the other night, and a lot of those tip-ins won the game for us tonight." Okur had 12 points and 10 rebounds in the first half to lift Utah to a 55-49 lead. Bell, who had not played in the previous five games, scored 10 points on 5-of-5 shooting in the third period, when Utah shot 62 percent (16-of-26). "That's our job, to come in the game when we're called upon and do something, whether it be making baskets, blocking shots or getting rebounds," Bell said. "Whatever you can do, you've got to go out there and give it."
