PHOENIX — The Phoenix Suns pulled a mini-BYU in the first half of their game tonight against the Utah Jazz.

Trailing by 13 points, the Suns rallied to tie 53-53 at halftime at US Airways Center.

Utah used a 15-2 run spanning the first and second quarters to go ahead 35-22.

But the Suns chipped away at that lead going into the locker room, especially after backup Jazz point guard Earl Watson left with a sprained left ankle.

Channing Frye sank a 3-pointer just before the end of the half and leads all scorers with 15 points. Marcin Gortat added 13 for Phoenix.

Paul Millsap tops Utah with nine points.
