The Utah Jazz will roll out the welcome carpet on Thursday when they host the visiting Minnesota Timberwolves in Western Conference NBA Action. After winning back-to-back games over the New York Knicks and Washington Wizards, the Timberwolves were trounced on the road by the Denver Nuggets. Meanwhile, the Jazz enjoyed a bounce-back win against the Phoenix Suns after losing to the Oklahoma City Thunder and Memphis Grizzlies.

Taj Gibson falls back down to Earth in Timberwolves loss

There’s a big difference between playing well offensively against the Knicks compared to playing against the Nuggets. The Timberwolves had to learn that lesson the hard way on Tuesday night, as they were crushed by the No. 2-ranked team in the Western Conference standings. Taj Gibson, who scored 25 points against the Knicks, was held to 2-of-5 shooting for only eight points.
It was another dagger to the Timberwolves’ hopes of climbing back into the playoff picture. On the defensive end of the floor, the Timberwolves had no answers for the Nuggets, who went a combined 60 percent shooting from the floor and a ridiculous 18-of-30 from 3-pointer. They were also out-rebounded in the game and turned the ball over 15 times.
Star center Karl-Anthony Towns carried the load on a night where both Andrew Wiggins and Derrick Rose sat out with injuries. He finished the game with a team-high 34 points, 10 rebounds, three assists and three blocks, while guard Tyus Jones contributed 16 points, two rebounds, three assists and two steals in the 133-107 loss.

Jazz putting the negativity behind them

The Jazz fan involved in the altercation with Oklahoma City Thunder star guard Russell Westbrook was issued a permanent ban on Tuesday, and on Wednesday, the Jazz tried to shift their focus back to matters on the court. Renewed focus was imperative considering they had lost their last two games to the Thunder and Grizzlies. The loss to the Grizzlies was especially disappointing considering they have the third-worst record in the Western Conference.
Jazz center Rudy Gobert showed up big against the Suns, snagging a double-double performance, which included 20 rebounds. Of course, star guard Donovan Mitchell was superman when he needed to be to help carry the Jazz to their 38th win of the season. The Jazz dominated the boards with Gobert’s monstrous efforts, while also finishing the game with a 46.7 field goal shooting percentage.
Gobert scored 18 points to go along with his assists, while Mitchell netted a team-high 26
