SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- The Utah Jazz honored late owner Larry H. Miller by retiring the No. 9 and renaming the court at EnergySolutions Arena.

The Jazz unveiled the No. 9 -- Miller's softball number -- jersey in the rafters next to the team's other retired numbers during a halftime ceremony Wednesday night when Utah hosted Phoenix in the regular season finale.

Miller died in February 2009 of complications related to diabetes.

Miller's family and former Utah players, including John Stockton, were on the court for the ceremony and a few fans chanted "Larry Mill-er!" as the teams warmed up for the second half.
