Joe Ingles with more really poor passes tonight. Strange. Haven’t seen this since his rookie year. Jazz now have 9 turnovers and Minnesota has 15 points off those turnovers. Jazz have focussed on this every minute of practice this week. Minnesota leads it 39-36

Karl Anthony Towns has been ejected by Kane Fitzergald. 2 techs in the last 2 minutes. First on elbow to Crowder and this time arguing a call. Wolves without Butler and Towns

Wiggins and Teague trying to take over the game for Minnesota. Royce O’Neale checking to stop Andrew Wiggins and forces an airball and a turnover. O’Neale is such a great defender.

Jazz lead 85-77 heading into the 4th quarter. Jazz are 27-4 when leading going into 4th. The Jazz are 3rd best 4th quarter and the Wolves 27th

Ricky Rubio is having the ultimate Ricky Rubio game. 2 for 6 shooting 9 points and the Jazz are +24 in his 25 minutes and -15 in the 17 minutes he hasn’t played. Jazz 103 Wolves 94 with 5:42 left

Minnesota 8-2 run after Teague was ejected for cheap shot on Rubio, Jazz lead 107-102 with 3:25 left in 4th quarter

Jazz close it out and get a much needed win. No help from the rest of the West. That help is not coming. Jazz going to have to take care of it all themselves in this playoff madness.
