The Utah Jazz are the hottest team in the NBA and used their 10th consecutive win to push past the .500 mark. The Jazz will try to keep that momentum going into the All-Star break and make it 11 in a row when they host one of the coldest teams in the league, the Phoenix Suns, on Wednesday.

Utah owns wins over Eastern Conference-leading Toronto and Western Conference-leading Golden State during the streak and picked up its second win over San Antonio in that span after overcoming a 13-point fourth-quarter deficit in a 101-99 home triumph on Monday. "This is one of those games you are fortunate to win," Jazz coach Quin Snyder told reporters. "You have to catch some breaks and I think we just continued to compete. That's all it literally comes down to. When you do that, you put yourself in position to catch a break." The Suns are losers of six in a row and were crushed 129-83 at the Warriors on Monday -- the second time in the last three games that they were beaten by at least 46 points. "It's tough as a player," Phoenix shooting guard Troy Daniels told reporters. "I know it's tough for the coaches, it's tough for the organization, it's tough for everybody. But it ain't going to get any easier. We have to show some pride and show some fight. Whoever we have out there, no matter the personnel we have to show that grit and grind and fight as player and as a man."

ABOUT THE SUNS (18-40): Warriors coach Steve Kerr let his players run the huddles and design plays on Monday, a move that didn't sit well with Phoenix's players. "It shows a lack of respect for an opponent, and maybe right now, we don't deserve respect," Suns veteran Jared Dudley told ESPN. "When you keep getting beat by 40, teams won't respect you. But it's up to us to change that." The bright spot was new point guard Elfrid Payton, who scored a team-high 29 points on 11-of-19 shooting and is averaging 24 points in two games since coming over from Orlando at the trade deadline.

ABOUT THE JAZZ (29-28): Utah outscored San Antonio 32-22 in the fourth quarter on Monday to earn the tightest victory during the current streak. "Guys were making extra effort plays," Jazz forward Derrick Favors told the Salt Lake Tribune. "Guys were digging in deep defensively and making shots on the offensive end. We were resilient tonight." Star rookie Donovan Mitchell led the way with 25 points against the Spurs and scored at least 20 points six times during the winning streak.


1. Jazz SF Joe Ingles is shooting 57.1 percent from 3-point range during the winning streak.

2. Suns PG Tyler Ulis (back) and SG Devin Booker (hip) are both questionable for Wednesday.

3. Mitchell scored 40 points in a 129-97 win at Phoenix on Feb. 2.

PREDICTION: Jazz 125, Suns 96
