The Utah Jazz overpowered the Phoenix Suns, 114-97, at the Talking Stick Resort Arena and remained within the Western Conference’s playoff zone. Rudy Gobert was in command in the paint finishing the match with 18 points and 20 rebounds for his 53rd double-double of the season.

Alex Len helped the Atlanta Hawks dominate inside en route for their 132-111 home win against the Memphis Grizzlies. The Ukrainian center finished with 20 points. Joakim Noah scored 12 points for the losing side, Jonas Valanciunas and Tyler Dorsey added eight each.

The Golden State Warriors snapped the Houston Rockets nine-game winning streak with a 106-104 victory at the Toyota Center. Clint Capela started and posted a 13-point, 13-rebound double-double, but wasn’t enough for the hosts of the NBA 2018-19 Regular Season contest.

Nikola Vucevic notched a 20-point, 14-rebound double-double on Wednesday, but the Orlando Magic suffered a 100-90 defeat to the Washington Wizards on the road. Timofey Mozgov (right knee) remained sidelined, the only European out on Wednesday.
