It’s a Western Conference showdown on Friday night at the new and improved Target Center. The Utah Jazz come to town to take on the Minnesota Timberwolves.
The Jazz have won six of the last seven games played between the two teams. One thing to watch is Ricky Rubio’s return to Minnesota.
This will be his first game in Minnesota since being traded by the Timberwolves to the Jazz in the off season.
The Utah Jazz have high expectations for this season, even after losing Gordon Hayward in free agency to the Boston Celtics.
They opened up their season on the right foot against the Denver Nuggets. They actually fell behind early and it didn’t look great for them, but they kept grinding and got themselves back into the game and came out ahead 106-96, which is exactly the type of game you should expect to see from this game.
The Jazz used a pretty balanced attack on the offensive end of the floor. Rudy Gobert led the way with 18 points, and ten rebounds.
The team had six players with over ten points including Joe Johnson and Alec Burks who came off the bench.
The one thing to really watch in this game is to see how Ricky Rubio performs in his first game back in Minnesota.
I would guess he will have some jitters early, but he needs to overcome that and have a really good game if the Jazz want to pull the upset in this game.
On the other side of this match up is the Minnesota Timberwolves who also made a lot of changes and feel like this is the year they will get back into the playoffs, but in game one you could tell this team was still getting used to each other.
There was a lot of little mistakes against the San Antonio Spurs that won’t happen later in the season when this team get’s to know each other better, but in the last game it led to a 107-99 defeat.
The Timberwolves were led by Andrew Wiggins in game one who put up 26 points including 4-6 from behind the three point line.
To win this game it’s going to come down to the offensive side of the floor. They need to try and push the pace in this game and make the Jazz’s defense uncomfortable.

Free Utah Jazz vs. Minnesota Timberwolves NBA Prediction:
There will be a lot of energy in the Target Center for the Timberwolves first game, and a team that has been hyped more then any in the teams history probably.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Jazz +5.5
I think the Timberwolves will feed off that energy and the offense will get rolling early. But i think the Jazz will stick around most of the game.
The Timberwolves will win the game, but the Jazz will cover.
