The Phoenix Suns probably got deal a crucial playoff blow when they fell back into tenth place in the West after a tough loss to the Memphis Grizzlies. Phoenix sits a game-and-a-half outside the eighth seed now, so they're far from being out of it, but they now have a team in-between them fighting for that spot as well.
The Utah Jazz retook the nine spot by beating the Houston Rockets in Houston, inserting them a half-game ahead of Phoenix. Utah only trails Denver for the eight spot by one game and Dallas and Houston by a game-and-a-half. The sixth and the tenth seeds are separated by a grand total of two games, meaning there's plenty of time to shuffle the bottom of the Western Conference Playoffs.
