The Phoenix Suns have nothing to play for at this point and could very well rest the majority of their key guys, so check the roster before betting. The Utah Jazz are winning their last five games by an average of nine points, and they need another win to lock up the fifth seed in the West. The Jazz simply have more to play for at this point, and that should mean something in a near toss up game. Give me the Jazz at home.
