The Phoenix Suns will have a chance for their 2000th franchise victory this weekend against the Jazz and Grizzlies.
Up first on Friday is a Jazz team that Phoenix already defeated at home earlier this season, 99-84. Utah has struggled since that time, dropping six of nine games, but did manage to get back on track earlier this week with a 106-84 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves. They were also able to handle their business against Phoenix in Utah back on Nov. 10 so it's not as if beating the Suns has been a foreign concept for the Jazz this season.
Two days later, the Suns are schedule to take the court again to face the Grizzlies. Memphis currently has the fourth- best record in the Western Conference this season but Phoenix was actually able to pull off an 82-80 upset on Dec. 12. That feat will be difficult to duplicate, though, as the Grizzles have been shutting the opposition down this season for a NBA-best defense that's only allowing 89.8 PPG.
