SUMMARY: The Jazz offensive woes bite them in the 4th quarter and the Jazz lose at home to the Minnesota Timberwolves.
- The Jazz offense entered the night ranked 22nd in the NBA and tonight they were held by the 17th ranked defensive team to below a point a possession and an unofficial offensive ranking of 95. The league average is about 108, Minnesota came into the game allowing 109.
- The Jazz 2 point shooting caused the problems tonight. The Jazz shot 3 of 24 on short mid range shots and 2 of 8 on long 2s. The Jazz 2 point shooting on non-restricted area shots was 5 of 32.
- The Jazz defense was really good for most of the night and the Jazz had a 6 point lead in the 4th quarter and seemed to be in control. The Jazz lead 96-90 with 9:13 left. Then the Wolves went on a 32-16 run to close the game and hit on 9 of 12 shots while the Jazz missed on 16 of 21 shots.
- The Jazz closed the Jazz with the “O” lineup of Conley,, Donovan, Joe, Bojan and Gobert that has been so brilliant all season (+38.1 per 100 possessions) and they got throttled. They were minus in the first half and the second half.
- The Jazz came into the game as the 29th ranked offensive team in the 2nd quarters of games and had another poor offensive quarter tonight.
- The Jazz played Jeff Green as the back up center tonight without Ed Davis and with Tony Bradley struggling. This allowed Dante Exum to get his first action since his injury in January of last year. He played with great energy and juice and looked like he hadn’t played competitive basketball for 10.5 months.
- Donovan Mitchell did not shoot the ball well tonight. He hit on 5 of 24 shooting. Lots of those really high season averages have come back to more normal numbers. His three point shooting is in a three game slump. Tonight he was 2 of 7
- Joe Ingles found his shot tonight and finished with 12 points, 8 rebounds and 5 assists.
- Minnesota was without Andrew Wiggins.
- Karl Anthony Towns with 9 points, 3 assists in the 4th quarter as the Wolves ran the high pick and roll with Teague and Towns time and time again.
- Jazz have lost two in a row to Memphis and Minnesota and head to Minnesota for the rematch on Wednesday.
