Breaking News: Phoenix Suns keep In-Season Tournament hopes alive with win over Jazz….

After the Phoenix Suns snuck away with a win over the Utah Jazz on Friday night in a high-scoring shooting, their In-Season Tournament hopes stay alive as they hold a 1-1 record in West Group A.

As Frank Vogel pointed out to his team in the locker room, “Way to stay fighting in this In-Season tournament. We’re still very, very much in the hunt for this thing.

Currently leading West Group A are the Los Angeles Lakers, who boast a 3-0 record, including a win against the Suns last week.

Coming in at 2nd are the Jazz at 2-1, followed by the Suns at 1-1, then the Trail Blazers at 1-2, and finally the Grizzlies at 0-3.

Of the teams that advance, there will be a leader from each group, which the Suns almost cannot possibly be considering they lost the head-to-head matchup against the Lakers.

However, Phoenix does still have a chance to move on to the knockout round as they can enter as a Wild Card team.

From both the Western and Eastern conferences, there will be two Wild Card teams to advance.

The Suns will also need some help from the Lakers, as Los Angeles will play the 2-1 Utah Jazz on Tuesday.

If the Lakers do win that matchup and the Suns win out, then Phoenix has a decent chance of moving on via a Wild Card team.

The next game for the Suns in the In-Season Tournament will be against Deandre Ayton and the Portland Trail Blazers at the Footprint Center on Tuesday.
