Monday, November 18 finds the Minnesota Timberwolves facing their Northwest Division counterparts the Utah Jazz in their first meeting of the season.
Last season, the squads played four times with the Jazz winning three of the four contests. The Jazz holds the all-time record having bested the Timberwolves in 83 of their 124 matches.
Karl-Anthony Towns leads his team in scoring (26.8 points), rebounds (12.1), field goal percentage (51.6%) and blocks (1.5). Jeff Teague leads the squad in assists (7.4) while Robert Covington tops the steals category (1.4).
The Wolves have vacillated between looking dominant and then falling back into familiar habits. Thus was the case in the game versus the Wizards. Instead of locking down defensively they got into an offensive back and forth which played right into the Wizards hands.
Towns led the way with a double-double of 27 points and 15 rebounds. Jake Layman (21), Robert Covington (17) and Jarrett Culver (13) were the other double-digit contributors.
Josh Okogie is nursing left knee soreness and is questionable for the game after missing the previous match. Andrew Wiggins is also questionable as he is away from the team due to a death in the family.
Shabazz Napier is out with a hamstring injury with no definitive timetable for a return.
The Utah Jazz took a while to mesh and figure out how to balance their offense and defense but are winners of four out of five games and seem to have figured it out.
Mike Conley made his first return to Memphis since the trade with his replacement rookie Ja Morant getting the best of him and winning the game at the buzzer.
Donovan Mitchell led the way with 29 points, five assists, and nine rebounds. Rudy Gobert registered a double-double of 23 points and 17 rebounds. Bojan Bogdanovic (20) and Mike Conley (15) were the other double-digit contributors.
On the season Donovan Mitchell leads the team in scoring (25.4 points), assists (4.2) and steals (1.6). Rudy Gobert leads the other key team categories of rebounding rebounds (13.6), field goal percentage (69.4%) and blocks (1.6).
Dante Exum might make his season debut on Monday as he returns from rehabbing his right knee injury. Ed Davis will miss a month due to a fractured left fibula.
