SALT LAKE CITY -- Gordon Hayward had 17 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists to lead a balanced Utah Jazz offence in a 109-86 win over the slumping Phoenix Suns on Wednesday night. Cheap Saints Jerseys China . Richard Jefferson scored 17 points and Diante Garrett had a career-high 15 points as the Jazz had seven players with 10 points or more in Utahs largest margin of victory this season. The Jazz shot 57.5 per cent from the field, the highest mark of any Phoenix opponent this season. Gerald Green had 17 points and rookie Archie Goodwin matched his career-best with 16 for the Suns. Playing their only road game in a nine-game stretch, the Suns have been looking to improve their playoff position. However, with a third straight loss, Phoenix leads Memphis by just one-half game the eighth and final Western Conference berth. Hayward, mired in a shooting slump (31 per cent in his previous 13 games), made plays all over the court in this one. Some fans chanted to put Hayward back in the game to get his first-ever triple-double. He just smiled as he watched the Jazz play the last 6:15 of the runaway win. Goran Dragic did not dress due to a sprained ankle and the Suns missed his playmaking abilities. Dragic twisted his right ankle in the third quarter in a loss to Minnesota on Tuesday and will have the injury re-evaluated on Thursday. Ish Smith had 13 points and five assists but the Jazz didnt respect his outside shooting and the defence wasnt spread like it would have been with Dragic. The Suns were 6 of 19 on 3-pointers. The Jazz turned a five-point lead into a 72-57 advantage thanks a 12-2 run and a 5:08 stretch where they held the Suns without a field goal. The Jazz broke it open in the fourth quarter as Garrett showed the skills he wished the Suns could have seen last season. Garrett was a late pickup for the Jazz this season after playing 19 games for Phoenix in 2012-13. Garrett had 11 points in the first five minutes of the fourth period to push the Jazz lead to 95-73. Derrick Favours scored 15 points in his second game back from a hip injury and Alec Burks scored 15 and Jeremy Evans had 11 in reserve roles. The Jazz outscored the Suns 50-36 in the paint and were equally adept from beyond the arc, making 9 of 18 attempts. After allowing a 35-point fourth quarter against the Timberwolves on Tuesday, the Suns defence was again porous against the Jazz. Utah players often beat their Phoenix counterparts down the courts and were one step quicker to the hoop on drives. Though the Jazz are buried near the bottom of the Western Conference standings, the starting lineup of Jefferson, Marvin Williams, Favors, Hayward and Trey Burke improved to 18-9 on the season. NOTES: Morris got a technical in the third quarter for yelling at official Zach Zarba after he was called for a foul on Jeffersons attempted dunk. ... The Suns largest lead was one point. ... The Jazz outscored the Suns in every quarter. ... Utahs previous biggest win this season was in a 122-101 victory at Sacramento on Dec. 11. ... Phoenix coach Jeff Hornacek played for the Jazz from 1994-2000 and served as an assistant coach with Utah from 2011-13. His No. 14 jersey number hangs in the rafters. Cheap Saints Jerseys . - The Oakland Athletics say they are stopping negotiations to extend their lease at the Coliseum. Cheap P.J. Williams Jersey . -- A 25-year-old freelance journalist from British Columbia was formally charged on Thursday with a felony, five days after she was arrested in the United States over allegations she threatened to kill her hockey player boyfriend. http://www.cheapsaintsjerseyselite.com/ . He wants to seize that opportunity. The trouble is, Firus has had more bumps on the road to Sochi than most. Last year, Firus had the skate of a lifetime in the short program at the Canadian championships when he landed his first triple Axel in competition and finished third in a stacked field.PHOENIX - Go ahead, pile on the Patriots.Declare the Bill Belichick-Tom Brady era over after they split their first four games this season. Call them cheaters when their footballs lose too much air. Predict the Legion of Boom will bring the hammer down on Rob Gronkowski.Then jump on the New England bandwagon.Watch one of the greatest quarterbacks ever lower the pressure on himself with handoffs to big LeGarrette Blount and quick passes to small receivers Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola. See the second-best defence in the Super Bowl silence Marshawn Lynchs running and put the burden on Russell Wilson to move the Seattle Seahawks with his arm and legs.Finally, concede that the Lombardi Trophy raised by New England owner Robert Kraft on Sunday night is well deserved, no matter how much fans of 31 other teams dislike the leader with the hoodie and the scowl — and his fourth Super Bowl championship as coach of the Patriots.No matter what goes on around this game or outside this locker room, whatever it may be, you have to be ready to play, defensive tackle Vince Wifork said. We cant let any distraction alter our course of what we want to be and how we want to do it.They want to be champions. How can they do it against the NFLs best defence?Start with Brady getting rid of the ball fast to a runner or receiver. Or let Gronkowski occupy two defenders after lining up wide, in the slot or beside a tackle. Or toss in some trickery — maybe a double reverse or even a flea-flicker.Theres no end to Belichicks football imagination.What would he like to establish early?What Id like to establish is the lead, he said Friday, flashing a rare grin he breaks out in the Super Bowl spotlight as if trying to show theres more to him than an obsession with Xs and Os and victories.The Patriots have scored first in just four of their last eight games. But theyve won six of them, with one of the losses coming in a meaningless regular-season finale.Never was their comeback ability more critical than when they overcame two 14-point deficits to beat the Baltimore Ravens 35-31 in the divisional playoffs.Doing that against Seattle will be a tougher challenge.The Seahawks are the first team to lead the NFL in points and yards allowed for two straight years since Chicago in 1985, when the Bears pummeled the Patriots 46-10 in the Super Bowl, and 1986. And in their last eight games, the Seahawks have allowed just seven points in the fourth quarter.Of course, the brainy Belichick probably saved some never-before-seen wrinkles — some might call them deceptions — to catch Richard Sherman and company off guard. Cheap Nick Fairley Jersey. He knows the game in and out. Hes very detailed and he wants perfection, said cornerback Darrelle Revis, a major reason for the Patriots improved defence in his first season with them. Hes a winner.Belichick has the perfect partner in Brady — a two-time Super Bowl MVP who holds numerous post-season passing records and brings great intensity and intelligence.He has the fight, the will and the determination to go out there and destroy anybody whos in his way, Revis said.Sounds a bit like Lynch. But the Patriots defence has been successful in neutralizing an opponents most dangerous player.They did it this season with A.J. Green of Cincinnati, Peyton Manning of Denver, Andrew Luck of Indianapolis (twice), Calvin Johnson of Detroit and Philip Rivers of San Diego.None, however, is a running back. And Lynch rushed for the fourth-most yards in the NFL and 13 touchdowns.But New England had the ninth-best run defence and allowed only six rushing touchdowns. So they have the players and the strategy to control Lynch.Green Bay did a really good job of that in the NFC Championship in the first quarter or two, Patriots linebacker Donta Hightower said. They really slowed him down. They forced Seattle to throw the ball a lot earlier, more than they wanted to.The Packers led 19-7 with just over two minutes left after Wilson had thrown four interceptions. But touchdown runs by Wilson and Lynch gave the Seahawks the lead before Wilson capped the incredible comeback with a 35-yard touchdown pass to Jermaine Kearse for a 28-22 overtime win.The Seahawks primary goal is to put the ball in their playmakers hands, Wilfork said. When you have Russell Wilson and Marshawn in the backfield together, you have to make sure you account for both of them.The Patriots will. Theyre disciplined, quick and physical on defence. Theyll chase Wilson down, gang tackle Lynch and use a secondary led by cornerbacks Revis and Brandon Browner, a Seahawk last season, to blanket mediocre receivers.New England was the NFLs fourth highest scoring team, averaging 29 points per game. It wont need that many to deny Seattle a second straight title and win the Super Bowl for the first time in 10 years.PREDICTION: Patriots 24, Seahawks 21.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
