Minnesota
Utah

[UTAH] — The Utah Jazz played host to the Minnesota Timberwolves last night and the Jazz did everything that was asked of them, walking away with the 120-113 victory. The win bumps Utah's record up to 49-30 on the season, while the loss drags Minnesota's down to 31-48. More than just a victory, the performance could serve as a boost for the Jazz. Having scored early and often against their opponents this time out, the club will look to capitalize on their momentum heading into their next contest.

On this night it was Gordon Hayward leading the show from a statistical perspective. His 39 points, 3 rebounds, 5 assists, 0 blocks and 2 steals in 39 minutes topped all players in terms of general production. Ask anybody, however - Hayward included - and the most important part is that the Jazz walked away with the W. Each win adds up over the course of the season with the end goal being far more satisfying than a Tweetable stat line.

Though not quite able to steal the show, Karl-Anthony Towns did a fine job leading his ultimately unsuccessful Timberwolves. Towns's 32 points, 13 rebounds and 2 assists were one bright spot for the team that spun out in the matchup.

Beyond any individual contributions, one of the major reasons why it was the Jazz walking away victorious was Utah's ability to limit Minnesota's offensive output. By holding the Wolves to less than they usually produce the Jazz made their life considerably easier.

Up next for the reeling Jazz will be a date with the Portland Trail Blazers while the visiting Timberwolves will look to bounce back in a matchup with the Los Angeles Lakers.
