UTAH: GUARDS: MO WILLIAMS will get a crack at running the point in Utah. He's more of a combo guard, but he'll do fine in an offense that revolves around the bigs . . . RANDY FOYE is a gunning combo guard who will step in as Utah's sixth man . . . ALEC BURKS started to come on late last year, making Raja Bell expendable. He'll come off the bench, but if he can start knocking down perimeter shots, he's in for a much bigger role . . . Yeah, that's right, EARL WATSON and JAMAAL TINSLEY are both still around. And they're both riding pine in Salt Lake . . . KEVIN MURPHY is a cagey scorer from tiny Tennessee Tech (no word on his Golden Tee skills). FORWARDS: PAUL MILLSAP was Utah's best all-around player last season and will be playing for a new contract. He should be able to keep his minutes despite Utah's young bigs behind him . . . GORDON HAYWARD will probably slide to the two. He has a chance for a breakout year after a strong finish to 2011-12 . . . MARVIN WILLIAMS gets a fresh start in Utah after a disappointing run in Atlanta. He figures to have a similar complementary role with the Jazz . . . DERRICK FAVORS is a long-term solution in the frontcourt. His offensive game is coming on, and he's already a far better defender than Al Jefferson . . . Slam dunk champion JEREMY EVANS and DeMARRE CARROLL will both provide energy off the bench. CENTERS: Like Millsap, AL JEFFERSON will hit free agency after the season. He's an incredibly limited player, a great scorer in the low post, but incapable of any other contributions and a huge liability on defense . . . ENES KANTER is still a few years away from a starting job. He has some rough edges to his game, but really had no problem adjusting to the physicality of the NBA.
PHOENIX: GUARDS: With Steve Nash gone, GORAN DRAGIC takes over at the point. He was a monster as a starter in Houston late last year, and he's familiar with Phoenix's system from his time there as Nash's backup . . . SHANNON BROWN is one of the league's better sixth men and could end up seeing close to starter minutes this year. Once just a raw athlete, he's made major strides as a shooter and ball-handler . . . KENDALL MARSHALL was a bit of a product of an absurdly talented supporting cast in college at UNC. He's got work to do to become an NBA-caliber starter, but he'll be capable enough as a backup point guard as a rookie . . . SEBASTIAN TELFAIR still can't hit an open jump shot, but will factor into the backcourt rotation. FORWARDS: LUIS SCOLA steps in as the starting four. While he's in his 30's and an underwhelming athlete, he's crafty and relentless . . . JARED DUDLEY will continue to be their main catch-and-shoot threat on the wing. It might take a while to develop an on-court chemistry with Dragic . . . MICHAEL BEASLEY has a chance to grab a starting spot. He rarely has his head on straight, but he can score . . . CHANNING FRYE, the sharp-shooting 7-footer, will likely miss the 2012-13 season due to an enlarged heart, but this condition is expected to completely heal . . . WESLEY JOHNSON gets a fresh start. He needs to start knocking down shots to land a rotation spot . . . MARKIEFF MORRIS showed flashes as a rookie, but has to make better decisions on the offensive end. He'll be a key on the second unit . . . Well-traveled P.J. TUCKER earned himself a roster spot with an impressive Summer League. CENTERS: MARCIN GORTAT had a great year-and-a-half alongside Steve Nash, and he'll have to prove he can create in the low post a little more. But he's a skilled big man who should pair nicely with Luis Scola as a scorer and passer in the post . . . Injury-riddled JERMAINE O'NEAL is still a strong low-post defender and shot-blocker.

*Jazz-Suns Preview* ===================


Utah (13-10) at Phoenix (8-15), 9:00 p.m. EDT

While the Utah Jazz are out to prove they are among the better teams in the league, the Phoenix Suns simply are trying to find some consistency.

Earning a last-second victory over a Western Conference power the last time out was a good place to start for each squad.

Utah looks to earn a third straight victory in the series while avoiding a fourth consecutive loss in Phoenix on Friday night.

The Jazz (13-10) are riding a season-best four-game winning streak after Mo Williams hit a 3-pointer as the buzzer sounded to give them a 99-96 home win over San Antonio on Wednesday.

"We're on a mission," said Williams, who missed his first three 3-point attempts. "We want to be good. We don't know our ceiling yet."

Paul Millsap finished with 24 points and 12 rebounds, Al Jefferson added 21 points and Gordon Hayward had 19 off the bench for Utah, which also beat Orlando, blew out Toronto by 32 and earned a seven-point road win over the Los Angeles Lakers during its streak.

"We wanted to show everybody what we're capable of doing, and if we continue to play like that we're going to shock the world," Millsap said. "The sky's the limit for us.

"We're headed in the right direction. We're starting to figure out how to win."

Phoenix (8-15) hopes it's on track to do the same after ending a seven-game losing streak with a dramatic 82-80 win over Memphis on Wednesday.

Goran Dragic scored the last of his 12 points on a short hook shot with 0.5 seconds remaining to give the Suns their first victory since Nov. 27.

"It was a much needed win, obviously, for us and once again it was against a real quality team," said coach Alvin Gentry, whose team shot only 36.8 percent for its second-worst mark of the season. "I thought our defense was really, really good. We struggled offensively, but I thought our defense was really good. We did a good job."

Jared Dudley and Shannon Brown led Phoenix with 15 points apiece.

"We lost every possible way you can - close games, blowouts, bad teams, good teams, different ways, different lineups - and sometimes you forget how to win," Dudley said. "Now we can start trying to get this thing rolling."

The Suns will look to do so by winning a fourth straight home meeting with the Jazz, who rank near the bottom of the West allowing an average of 103.3 points per game on the road, where they've lost nine of 13.

Utah, though, has won the previous two meetings, both in Salt Lake City. Jefferson is averaging 20.5 points and 11.2 rebounds in 21 career games versus Phoenix, marking the most points and second-most rebounds he averages against any team.

He had 27 points and 14 rebounds while Millsap added 18 and 13 to help beat the Suns 94-81 in the most recent matchup Nov. 10 without Williams, who sat out with a strained right adductor.

Luis Scola had 21 points and 11 boards and Dragic contributed 13 points and six assists for the Suns in that contest.
