SALT LAKE CITY -- The Utah Jazz honored late owner Larry H. Miller by retiring the No. 9 and renaming the court at EnergySolutions Arena.

The Jazz unveiled the No. 9 -- Miller's softball number -- jersey in the rafters next to the team's other retired numbers during a halftime ceremony Wednesday night when Utah hosted Phoenix in the regular-season finale.

Miller died in February 2009 of complications related to diabetes.

Miller's family and former Utah players, including John Stockton, were on the court for the ceremony and a few fans chanted "Larry Mill-er!" as the teams warmed up for the second half.
