(AP Photo/Matt York) PHOENIX (AP) — Chris Paul and his 36-year-old legs played 40 minutes of basketball for the Phoenix Suns on Monday night. The way he was cooking in the fourth quarter of a 115-109 win over the short-handed Utah Jazz, one of the best point guards in NBA history looked like he was ready to play 40 more. “I feel good, I’m cool,” Paul said with a grin. “I’ll hoop again tomorrow if you want to.” Devin Booker scored 33 points, Paul had 15 of his a season-high 27 points in the fourth quarter, and the Suns rallied for their seventh straight win. Paul just missed a triple-double with 14 assists and nine rebounds. The Suns improved their NBA-best record to 37-9, matching the 2006-07 team for the best start in franchise history. The gritty Jazz trailed by 13 in the first half but jumped ahead 87-85 by the end of the third quarter. Utah pushed its lead to 95-91 early in the fourth but the

RPI rankings for Region 11 girls basketball unchanged, not the case for boys basketball – Cache Valley Daily

MILLVILLE – The latest RPI rankings released by the Utah High School Activities Association (UHSAA) are the same as they were a week ago for Region 11 girls basketball teams. Ridgeline remains in the top spot among all 4A girls teams with Sky View and Green Canyon remaining in the top 5. Mountain Crest, Bear River and Logan also remain unchanged in their RPI rankings. For the boys, however, two teams dropped in their rankings while one moved up. Sky View lost on a last second put-back at Mountain Crest on Friday, resulting in their first Region 11 loss. As a consequence, the Bobcats fell from #2 to #3. Unfortunately for Mountain Crest, the win did nothing to move them up in the rankings as they remain #13. Bear River also dropped one spot (from #10 to #11) after losing both of their region games last week. The one team moving up in the rankings (#4 to #5) is Ridgeline after victories over Mountain Crest and Green Canyon. Logan and Green Canyon join Mountain Crest as Region 11 boys teams who did not move in the rankings. In 5A, both the Box Elder boys and girls split their region games

(AP Photo/Jeff Chiu) SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Stephen Curry has been around long enough that he can be playful when it comes to his rare, recent shooting funk. Are his hands healthy after a couple of recent minor injuries? “They’re still attached to my body and I’m still getting up plenty of attempts,” the two-time MVP said following another off-night, one where his Golden State Warriors beat the Utah Jazz 94-92 on Sunday. “I’m trying to have fun with this. It’s a big-picture perspective on how you approach the game, the work that you put in. It’s obviously frustrating. I want to shoot the ball, it’s frustrating. I kicked the chair the other day for that reason,” he said. “It’s not like I don’t care and not trying to figure it out but I don’t get preoccupied with it.” While Curry’s shot is a little off — for now — coach Steve Kerr praises his star point guard’s ballhandling, how he’s dishing off and defending and all the other intangibles, like those 34 assists to six turnovers the past four games. Curry scored 13 points, struggling again
