Utah Jazz destroy Suns 118-91


On paper, this looked like the most brutal opening schedule the NBA could possibly plan. The first six games are against four Western Conference winners (Mavs twice) and LeBron’s Cavs. It looked like the only way the Jazz could start 1-5 was if they snuck up on the Rockets.
