The Utah Jazz lost to the Minnesota Timberwolves just one week ago.It was an ugly back- and- forth game where Trey Burke was the story shooting 4-22. My, have things changed in just one week time though. Riding the energy of a season-changing win against the Oklahoma City Thunder Saturday night, the Jazz win their second in a row beating the Timberwolves 104-84 Monday night.

The first half was a half of runs. It was a back and forth game all of the first and much of the second quarter. Rudy and Wiggins had some fun with each other. See highlights below :)

The Jazz finished the first half on a 15-6 run to take a 10 point lead into the half. All the wheels came off for the Timberwolves in the 3rd quarter of the game when the Jazz opened on a 14-0 run to extend their lead to 24 at 64-40. At the end of three the Jazz lead 81-57 thanks to an all around team effort by the Jazz.

The Jazz cruised in the 4th quarter where the finishing lineup was Johnson, Evans, Millsap, Cooley, and Cotton. You know its a comfortable win when we get to see those guys play several minutes together.
