With a giant home stretch looming in the balance, next up at home for the Utah Jazz is the youthful Minnesota Timberwolves.
Minnesota has dropped 2 in a row, but did put up a serious fight against one of the best in Oklahoma City.
The Jazz got back in the win column and will look to use this home stretch to really string together some wins here and get themselves some space in a crowded Western Conference.
Minnesota has dropped 13 of their last 15 games and even with a weak Eastern Conference this team is certainly destined for the lottery.
However, they have offered glimpses of just how good this young group can be, like last time out. Minnesota took the Thunder to the wire, but couldn’t get the job done in a 126-123 loss. That was after they took Cleveland to the brink as well in a 114-107 loss.
During this 15 game stretch, the Twolves are allowing 110.2 points against as their defense as completely disappeared. Truthfully, it hasn’t been there all season as they are allowing an average of 103.6 points per game, but when you’re as young as them, it starts to get frustrating within the mind.
A loss here would mark their 10th straight road loss as well. It would be the 4th time in 7 seasons they would have lost 10 straight on the road.
The Jazz have a real chance to do some damage here.
They are currently 10th in the conference, tied with the 8th seed and get a long stretch of games at home. Utah is 13-10 at home this season and can really make a move in the Western Conference.
A win here would also mark the first time they’ve won back to back games in almost 3 weeks. They’ve gone 3-5 since those back to back wins, but have managed to keep pace with the lower tier teams in the west.
Over their last 6 at home, Utah has alternated wins and losses, but come in off one of their most impressive performances of the season as they took it to Charlotte 102-73.
Over the last 5 games, Gordon Hayward has averaged 25.6 points per game. Look for him to be the difference maker in this one.
NBA Betting Trends:
- Timberwolves are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 after allowing 100 points or more in their previous game.
- Timberwolves are 10-3 ATS in their last 13 road games vs. a team with a winning home record.
- Timberwolves are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games following a straight up loss.
- Jazz are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 when their opponent allows 100 points or more in their previous game.
- Jazz are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS win.
- Jazz are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games after allowing less than 75 points in their previous game.
Free NBA Prediction:
The Timberwolves are just a horrendous team on the road. You don’t lose 9 straight away from home by mistake.
With Utah realizing this is their chance to really make a move in the West, look for Hayward and company to use that route over Charlotte to ignite a special home run here.
