Jazz Defeat Suns to Clinch Playoff Spot
Paul Millsap scored 26 points as the Utah Jazz beat the Phoenix Suns 100-88 to clinch a Western Conference playoff berth.
The win snapped the Jazz's seven-game losing streak to the Suns.
Jared Dudley and Michael Redd each scored 15 points for the Suns, who were without forward Channing Frye due to a shoulder injury.
The Suns won the season series but cannot catch the Jazz with just one game left.
Utah can still claim the number seven seed if the Denver Nuggets lose their last two games.
Phoenix trailed 85-80 when Al Jefferson scored eight consecutive points to put the game out of reach.
