The Utah Jazz have been on a roll lately, going 8-2 in their last 10 games. Meanwhile, the Timberwolves (11-13) have had an interesting, but inconsistent 2021-22 to date. They sit just outside the playoffs in the ninth seed, well below third seed Jazz (16-7). Either way, the Pup are a talented young team led by a formidable attacking duo of Karl-Anthony Towns and Anthony Edwards. They’re sure to give the Utah Jazz everything they’ve got when the two teams face off tonight.

Malik Fitts and Elijah Hughes have both been assigned to the G-League.

Prediction Utah Jazz vs Minnesota Timberwolves

The Minnesota Timberwolves could face a world of injuries in this contest. Karl-Anthony Towns is questionable with a tailbone contusion, and while he is in good health, the squad will be without Patrick Beverley and D’Angelo Russell.

Meanwhile, they plan to wrestle with this Utah Jazz team, even with all of their key players. The gap in the records of these two teams will probably come as no surprise to anyone. The Jazz are a heavy, veteran team with championship aspirations, while the Wolves are a young upstart who would be happy to make the playoffs.

The Utah Jazz are the big favorites of this contest, and we predict a good margin of victory for them.
