PHOENIX – Brett Brown believes Jahlil Okafor will miss his second consecutive game with a sore right knee. "I don't think so," the 76ers coach responded when asked Sunday if his rookie center will face the Utah Jazz in Monday's game at EnergySolutions Arena. "It's for sure 50-50," Brown said. "If you made me guess, I'd say no. " Meanwhile, Richaun Holmes returned to practice Sunday and will play against the Jazz (12-16). The rookie reserve power forward suffered a game-ending sprained right knee in the third quarter of Saturday's 111-104 victory over Phoenix.

There was debate in the Minnesota Timberwolves' huddle as they set up what they hoped would be Chuck Person's winning shot. Should they start the play with 12 seconds left? With 10? With eight? "I said, 'All I need is a hair.' Run it with five or six," said Person, who set a pick for Micheal Williams, popped to the top of the key and calmly hit a jumper with 1.9 seconds left to give Minnesota to a 100-98 victory over the visiting Utah Jazz last night. "It's a quick play. " And an effective one for the Wolves, who have used it to win other games and ran it again and again last night.

Jason Kidd was so ill, he felt like throwing up on the court. Joe Kleine's nose was so battered, he needed plastic surgery after the game. But after beating the Utah Jazz on their home floor, the visiting Phoenix Suns never felt better. Kidd had 19 points, 12 assists and seven rebounds as the revved-up Suns, spurred by a series of physical confrontations with Karl Malone, beat the Jazz, 99-85, last night. Utah lost at home for just the third time this season, while the Suns, who still have a shot at the fifth playoff seed in the West, won their third straight and ninth in their last 12. Rex Chapman added 23 points for Phoenix.

SALT LAKE CITY - Ben Simmons has been everything the 76ers expected so far. He displayed superior passing skills, a high basketball IQ and a rocket burst in his two Utah Summer League appearances this week. Coach Brett Brown is already comparing the 6-foot-10, 243-pounder to Isiah Thomas and Chris Paul. "It's unbelievable," said Maodo Lo, a guard on the Sixers' summer-league team. "I mean, he's extremely gifted with his size, his body, the things he's able to do on the court.

EVEN AFTER only two games, the script is becoming too familiar for the 76ers. Play hard at the beginning, go to the bench and watch an even game become lopsided. Throw in another opposing guard torching them off the bench and that's why the team stands at 0-2 after a 99-71 loss to the Utah Jazz Friday in the team's home opener. The Jazz, which is is starting the season with a three-game road trip, gained its first win of the season by using a 13-0 run early in the second quarter, hot shooting by Alec Burks and minimal defense from the Sixers, who dropped to 0-2. If there was any doubt about the outcome after Utah forged a 50-33 lead at the half, the Jazz quickly secured the decision with another 13-0 run in the third, opening the lead up to 30 points before the quarter was even half over.

DURING THE Sam Hinkie and Brett Brown era, the Sixers' most known quality outside of all of the losses they have piled up is their lightning-quick pace. Based on offensive possessions per game, the Sixers played at the league's seventh-fastest pace this past season and the fastest in the entire NBA in 2013-14. That heightened pace leads to more possessions each game for the Sixers and their opponents, leading to inflated points-per-game totals. To see through the noise and discrepancies that causes, it's best to look at team performance through offensive and defensive rating, which illustrate how many points a team scores or surrenders per 100 possessions.

SALT LAKE CITY - No one in the 76ers organization was surprised that Furkan Aldemir led the Utah Summer League in rebounding. Rebounding is the main reason the Sixers worked hard to acquire his rights from the Houston Rockets two summers ago. But his 50 percent shooting from three-point range - 3 for 6 through two games - was certainly a surprise. Surely, the Sixers won't rely on Aldemir's long-range shooting this season, right? "Well, why not if he's 3 for 6?" said assistant coach Billy Lange, who coaches the summer league team.

SALT LAKE CITY - Members of the 76ers' front office were in Utah's capital city this week to watch the rookies and second-year players compete in the Utah Jazz Summer League. They will fly to Las Vegas Friday to watch a mostly different group of Sixers participate in the 10-day NBA Summer League. The highlight, general manager Sam Hinkie said, is seeing how players adapt. "I love summer league," Hinkie said. "Summer league is like the answers to the test. We've been studying these guys in the draft for years.

THE UTAH JAZZ, armed with seven first-rounders on its roster from the previous five drafts, present one possible path for the Sixers to take as they continue to build their roster through acquiring draft picks and young players. With two young big men holding down the Utah frontcourt in Derrick Favors and Rudy Gobert, who two of the top-five defenders in opponents' field-goal percentage at the rim, the parallels become more obvious between the teams. The comparison wasn't lost on Sixers head coach Brett Brown before the team's 89-83 loss last night.

When the 76ers look into their crystal ball, and into the immediate future, they might just see the Utah Jazz. The Jazz are committed to rebuilding with a young, athletic team, constructed mainly through the draft. The Sixers appear to be working from the same plan. Both the Sixers and Jazz are examples of how painstaking the process is in the NBA. The necessity of it isn't questioned, even if the methods may be. The Jazz matched their win total from last year with Friday's 89-83 victory at the Wells Fargo Center.
