Utah Jazz (23-50) @ Minnesota Timberwolves (39-35)




Previous Matchups:

Minnesota 93, Utah 91

Utah 100, Minnesota 82






Projected Starting Lineups:











Reserves:










Minnesota has been good at home recently, and this should be an easy win for them, especially with Utah missing Boozer and Kirilenko. Besides the motivation of playing for the playoffs, Minny can also use the 18-point *** kicking that Utah handed them in the last meeting as motivation as well. With a win tonight and a Memphis loss, Minny would only be down 1½ games.

If we don't win this, then the playoff hunt is over.

Hopefully Toronto can play a good game tonight vs Memphis

Prediction
Wolves:92
Jazz:82

Its a ghost town here. The T-Wolves are playing theri rear ends off fighting for the final playoff position and I can hear crickets chirping, its so quiet.

Another big win. That 31-8 first quarter sure helped to get the Wolves off to a good start. The Wolves did it all - shooting, rebounding, blocking shots, knocking down free throws. The whole team got to share the wealth tonight as the starters got light minutes and the bench got to play.

KG put up another marvelously well-rounded game in limited minutes. Good win, Wolves.

To move up, other teams need to cooperate by losing and moving down. Yeah, that's kinda obvious, but sometimes the obvious can be just assumed and overlooked. Just gotta keep winning.

Playing their tails off... hehe, Gardenhire's favorite.

Hmm... if the Wolves didn't have as many East road losses (Charlotte, new York, etc. by a LOT) then they MIGHT be able to cover for their 1-3 record against Memphis, then face slim chances of winning more than 2 playoff games.

They're 11 games behind 03-04 even after a better start through 17 and 3 more wins against Portland. In the West, they blew it.
