After claiming their first preseason win Saturday against Dallas, the Suns were unable to keep their momentum rolling on Tuesday against the Jazz, dropping a 105-100 home decision.
“It’s a typical preseason game,” Suns Head Coach Alvin Gentry said. “I think we had good moments and then some really tough moments.
“I thought we played well the first quarter, moved the basketball and did some good things. Obviously, the second quarter we really struggled.”
Phoenix started out of the gates hot, shooting 59 percent from the floor en route to a 31-25 advantage at the end of the first period. Leading the attack was Jason Richardson, who drilled 2-of-2 three-pointers to pace the Suns with eight in the quarter.
