SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Jazz guards Donovan Mitchell and Jordan Clarkson carried Utah’s offense in the first half of the team’s scrimmage against the Phoenix Suns.

The Jazz faced Phoenix in the first of three scrimmages prior to the restart of the 2019-20 season at Disney World in Orlando, Florida.

Mitchell and Clarkson each connected on a pair of triples to highlight their opening half stat lines.

The Jazz trailed the Suns 50-39 at halftime but the deficit could have been much worse if not for the two guards.

Mitchell led Utah with 12 points on 50 percent shooting, including 2-3 from downtown. He added one rebound, three assists, and a block in 14 minutes.

Clarkson came off the bench and led the Jazz’s second unit with 8 points on 3-10 field goals.

The sixth man also pulled down a couple of rebounds in 15 minutes of action.

The Jazz’s starting lineup combined for 23 first half points.

Phoenix was led by Devin Booker’s 10 points in 13 minutes.

The Suns outshot the Jazz 51.4 percent to 36.4 percent during the opening half.

Utah’s scrimmage against Phoenix is broadcast on AT&T SportsNet and NBA League Pass.
