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. Unfortunately for Hayward, what really matters - the result on the scoreboard - still leans in favor of the Jazz. Perhaps continued performances like this one in the near future will get Minnesota back in the win column before too long.

At the helm for the Jazz in the victory was Karl-Anthony Towns and while he may not have posted a more attractive statline than Hayward, he did help his club walk away with the victory. Towns posted 32 points, 13 rebounds and 2 assists in the win.

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.
