The Jazz (35-30) clinched the Western Conference’s eighth and final playoff seed by snapping a seven-game losing streak to Phoenix and holding the Suns to 40.5 percent shooting with 15 turnovers. The Suns will miss the playoffs for the third time in four years and are left to play out the schedule tonight against San Antonio, the West’s top seed who likely will use stars lightly or not at all tonight.
The Suns (33-32) rallied from a 12-19 start for an 18-8 stretch but are closing with five losses in their past eight games.
