SALT LAKE CITY – The Utah Jazz blew a 17 point fourth quarter lead and fell to the Phoenix Suns 111-105.

It’s the sixth time this season the Jazz have held a double-digit lead in the fourth quarter of a game only to watch it rapidly wash away and result in a loss.

Bojan Bogdanovic had 21 points to lead the Jazz while Devin Booker’s 33 points led all scorers.

First Quarter

The Jazz opened the game ice-cold missing their first eight shots of the game while the Suns repeatedly got out and ran.

Phoenix built an 11-0 lead before Bojan Bogdanovic got the Jazz on the board, but it opened a flood gate for the Jazz.

The roster would hit 7-10 to close the quarter and trailed by just six through 12 minutes.

After one, the Jazz trailed the Suns 30-24.

Second Quarter

The Jazz continued their momentum into the second quarter building a double-digit lead at 49-38.

However, Devin Booker took over for the Suns who closed the half on a 16-5 run to trim the Jazz lead to three.

Booker had 24 points at the half while Danuel House Jr. had seven points for the Jazz, but was an impressive +22 in nine minutes.

At the half the Jazz led the Suns 57-54.

Third Quarter

Donovan Mitchell opened the third quarter carrying the Jazz offense scoring eight points on 4-5 shooting after scoring nine points on 3-10 shooting in the first half.

House Jr. continued to have a huge impact on the game building his plus-minus to +28 in 16 total minutes.

Jordan Clarkson hit a three at the buzzer after Rudy Gobert missed a free throw on an and-one opportunity to complete a five-point play, and give the Jazz their biggest lead of the game.

After three, the Jazz led the Suns 92-75.

Fourth Quarter

The Jazz went cold to open the fourth quarter knocking down just 2-14 shots over the first 8:30 of the period and watched their 17 point lead evaporate with 3:18 left to play.

The Suns took the lead on a Mikal Bridges dunk with 1:28 left to play and built the lead to five on a three-point play the next possession.

The Jazz blown 17-point lead was their biggest of a fourth quarter game this season and their sixth blown double-digit lead in the final period this season.

The Jazz fell to the Suns 111-104.
