The Utah Jazz were in a good mood after playing the Phoenix Suns on Monday, considering they'd just lost for the eighth time in 10 games. The reason was simple: Despite falling 115-109 on the road, the Jazz gave a spirited effort with a skeleton crew.

Six of Utah's nine leading scorers didn't play in Phoenix, including All-Stars Donovan Mitchell, Rudy Gobert, and Mike Conley Jr. Also out were Bojan Bogdanovic, Royce O'Neale and Joe Ingles.

Many of those players will likely dress for the rematch Wednesday night in Salt Lake City. But Utah's fill-ins gave quite the showing in Phoenix: After falling behind by 13 in the opening half, the Jazz rallied to take a 95-91 lead in the fourth quarter.
