The Timberwolves are in last-place in the Northwest Division but would be in first-place if they played in the Southeast. They are the best last-place team in the NBA, record-wise.
The game after going out in overtime with a knee injury, Karl-Anthony Towns returned and continued his push toward the All-NBA that would unlock over $30 million on his five-year deal. He scored 34 points, ripped down 10 rebounds, blocked three shots and threw three dimes in a blowout loss in Denver.
With Derrick Rose, Jeff Teague, and Andrew Wiggins all out on Tuesday, Minnesota went super young in its starting lineup. Towns was a veteran, in fact, running with Keita Bates-Diop, Josh Okogie, Tyus Jones, and Dario Saric.
Bates-Diop and Okogie are both interesting young pieces, especially after Minnesota lost Zach LaVine in the Jimmy Butler deal. Both guys are long and super athletic, much like LaVine, who has taken steps forward with his offensive game. If either of those rookies do the same, they could be stars.
Utah lost its second game in a row the last time it was in action, which was the OKC game.
That game was all over the media the next morning because of the incident with Russell Westbrook and the fan who was, allegedly, racist.
While the fan didn’t go into detail about what he said in a postgame interview, he was adamant that he didn’t curse at Westbrook. Of course, Westbrook didn’t say he did. He said he told him to “get down on his knees, like you used to.”
In the aftermath, Westbrook was fined and the fan banned for life by the NBA. The Jazz probably won’t miss him in this game.
Utah is on the road on Wednesday night before coming back home. Ricky Rubio and Raul Neto are both probable for Wednesday in Phoenix after missing some time with bumps and bruises. The extra playmaking in the backcourt should take some of the pressure off of Donovan Mitchell, who has been terrific lately but overused, too.

Free Minnesota Timberwolves vs. Utah Jazz NBA Prediction: Utah big.
Rudy Gobert will have something to say about the All-NBA too. Without much help, Towns shouldn’t dominate this one and Utah will overwhelm at home.
