PHOENIX -- The last two games have shown the Phoenix Suns what is possible. They just wish it hadn't taken a seven-game losing streak to bring out the improved play. With their longest losing skid in eight years in the rear-view mirror, the Suns backed up Wednesday's win over Memphis with an impressive 99-84 win over the Utah Jazz on Friday behind a season-high 22 points from Jared Dudley. Goran Dragic had 17 points and Marcin Gortat added 12 points and 14 rebounds for the Suns, who held opponents under 90 points in consecutive games. PJ Tucker and Michael Beasley combined for 21 of Phoenix's 38 bench points as the Suns recorded back-to-back victories for just the third time this season and, for the first time, beat teams with a winning record consecutively.
