SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Hakim Warrick and Steve Nash scored 18 points apiece to help the Phoenix Suns beat the Utah Jazz 110-94 on Thursday night.
The Suns (1-1) led by as many as 18 points against a Jazz team that played with more intensity than during their 22-point season-opening loss at Denver on Wednesday. But in the end the Jazz still had trouble finding the basket.
The Jazz shot just 33.3 percent in the first quarter and 42.9 percent for the game. Utah was just 3-for-13 on 3-pointers while Phoenix made 10.
Al Jefferson scored 20 points to lead Utah (0-2).
Raja Bell also struggled in a game against his former team, scoring just seven points on 3 of 12 shooting.
