Who’s Playing

Minnesota @ Utah

Current Records: Minnesota 16-44; Utah 44-15

What to Know

After three games on the road, the Utah Jazz are heading back home. After a few days’ rest for both teams, they and the Minnesota Timberwolves will meet up at 9 p.m. ET April 24 at Vivint Smart Home Arena. Utah will be strutting in after a victory while Minnesota will be stumbling in from a defeat.

The Jazz took their matchup against the Houston Rockets this past Wednesday by a conclusive 112-89 score. The contest was all but wrapped up at the end of the third, by which point Utah had established a 91-63 advantage. Shooting guard Joe Ingles and center Rudy Gobert were among the main playmakers for Utah as the former shot 6-for-10 from downtown and finished with 21 points and six rebounds and the latter dropped a double-double on 19 points and 18 boards. That makes it nine consecutive games in which Gobert has had at least ten rebounds.

Meanwhile, it was close but no cigar for Minnesota as they fell 128-125 to the Sacramento Kings this past Wednesday. The Timberwolves’ loss shouldn’t obscure the performances of center Karl-Anthony Towns, who had 26 points and six assists along with five boards, and center Naz Reid, who had 24 points in addition to seven rebounds.

The Jazz are the favorite in this one, with an expected 12.5-point margin of victory. They are currently two-for-two against the spread in their most recent games, a trend bettors might want to take into account.

Minnesota’s defeat took them down to 16-44 while Utah’s win pulled them up to 44-15. Allowing an average of 118.28 points per game, Minnesota hasn’t exactly asserted themselves on the defensive end. We’ll see if they can patch up the holes in their defense before their upcoming game.
