It’s a Western conference showdown on Friday night in Salt Lake City. The Minnesota Timberwolves play their second game in two days when they take on the Utah Jazz.
Both teams come into this game 1-1 in their last two games. This is the fourth game of the year between the two teams. The away team has won each of the previous three match ups.
The Minnesota Timberwolves have all the building blocks in place to be a contender in the Western conference for years to come but this year the consistency just wasn’t there for them to make a serious run at the playoffs.
The Minnesota Timberwolves season has been all about streaks. There has been streaks where they have looked really good, have played a complete games on both sides of the court and they do that for a few games. But then for the next five games they forget how to play defense and it is their downfall.
For this Wolves team the problem is never on the offensive side of the floor, it’s usually on the defensive side of the floor.
Their have been two super positive things to come out of this season for the Timberwolves. Karl Anthony-Towns and Andrew Wiggins have continued to grow on both sides of the floor and Towns already looks like a superstar in this league.
The other positive is Ricky Rubio has developed a jump shot. Since the trade deadline he has been shooting the ball with confidence and is constantly putting up big numbers. If he can continue that into next year, that will really open up the offense for the Wolves.
Right now the Utah Jazz seem to basically be playing for home court in the first round of the playoffs. They come into this game in 4th place in the Western conference 1.5 games above the Clippers who are in fifth place.
The Jazz come into this game playing really well as of late. They have won four of their last five games. In their last game they came out strong against Portland and won 106-87.
The Jazz really need to try and push the pace in this game. Minnesota is going to have tired legs in this game and they need to try and exploit that early.
The big thing in this game is they can’t overlook the Wolves. They have a tough schedule coming up after the Wolves but they need to focus on this game first.
