The Jazz had lost their last three games, giving the Suns a bit of wiggle room to add to that downfall. For the most part, the Jazz were able to match the Suns.

Yet after a tit-for-tat like matchup, the Suns were able to separate themselves from the Jazz going into the fourth quarter.

The Suns were able to make it two wins in a row, beating the Jazz 117-103.

Ayton Finishes Return on the Upside

Phoenix has been without Deandre Ayton since March 16, and his presence in the post has been missed.

Bismack Biyombo and Jock Landale were able to pull most of the weight in his absence. Still, being without your starting center can be a hassle in certain matchups.

Ayton had a relatively quiet first half, only scoring four points. He increased his output to points for the night along with rebounds.

Ayton’s minutes for the night finished around , putting him at his average for the season. Still, the seven-footer is working his way back from a four-game absence.

His contributions were critical in Phoenix’s win on Monday.

For the Suns, it marks the 40th win of the season, furthering their cement into the fourth spot of the West.

Up next for the Phoenix will be a two-game home stay starting on Wednesday. The Minnesota Timberwolves will be in town, along with the supposed return of Kevin Durant.

Phoenix has seven games remaining in the regular season.
