SALT LAKE CITY – The Utah Jazz will host the Phoenix Suns in their final home game of the regular season.

The Suns meanwhile are playing their final road game before finishing the season at home on Sunday against the Sacramento Kings.
Jazz Wrap Up Solid Home Season

The Jazz have struggled away from home however as the only team in the West’s top six with a record below .500 on the road.
In order to open the postseason at home, the Jazz would need to win their two final games including Sunday’s season finale at the Portland Trail Blazers with the Dallas Mavericks going winless against Portland and the San Antonio Spurs.
Suns Face Jazz With Healthy Roster
Though the Suns already have home-court advantage locked up through the playoffs, they will face the Jazz with their full complement of players.
After resting Chris Paul, Devin Booker, DeAndre Ayton, and Jae Crowder in Wednesday’s loss to the Los Angeles Clippers, Phoenix doesn’t have any names listed on Friday’s injury report.

The two teams have yet to field a fully healthy roster against one another this season with the Jazz missing several starters in their first two meetings in late January, while Paul missed the Suns’ road trip to Utah in February.
The two teams could face off in the second round if the Jazz remain in the fifth seed, and both teams were to win their opening-round matchups.
The Jazz and Suns will tip-off at 7:30 pm MT and can be heard on KSL NewsRadio and The Zone Sports Network. The game will be televised on AT&T SportsNet and FuboTV.
