Archie Goodwin's thunderous slam dunk completes Suns comeback

SALT LAKE CITY - Archie Goodwin's dunk with 3.3 seconds left gave Phoenix its only lead of the night, and capped the Suns' rally from a 30-point first-half deficit.

The teams shot a combined 106 free throws - 53 apiece. The Suns were called for 40 fouls, the Jazz for 39.

Utah started the game on a 46-16 run, but lost when Shelvin Mack's jumper bounced off the rim as time expired.

Devin Booker led Phoenix with 20 points. Dante Exum scored 18 points and Joe Johnson added 17 for the Jazz.

SUNS: Tyson Chandler (hamstring) didn't play, nor did Brandon Knight (knee), P.J. Tucker (back) and John Jenkins (abdominal). ... Eric Bledsoe scored 16 for Phoenix.

JAZZ: Alec Burks, Derrick Favors, Gordon Hayward and Rodney Hood all were sidelined. ... Gobert took 15 free throws in the first half, one more than the entire Phoenix roster had in the first 24 minutes.

UP NEXT: Phoenix (2-2) hosts Dallas on Friday. Utah (2-2) hosts the Los Angeles Clippers on Monday.
