Suns 100, Jazz 86
Game 82: Wednesday in EnergySolutions Arena
Jazz starters Carlos Boozer (strained right oblique) and Andrei Kirilenko (strained left calf muscle) sat out the game with injuries.
The depleted Jazz had little firepower off the bench, as the Suns reserves outscored the Jazz's 50-13.
Utah would have clinched the No. 3 seed in the West with a victory. Instead the Jazz fell to No. 5 and won't have home-court advantage in the first round.
