The Utah Jazz finish up their five game road trip with tonight's contest against the Minnesota Timberwolves. The Wolves played last night and should be tired. The Jazz just played their last game like they had no energy left. When both teams are healthy it's a great game. Tonight could start off a little sloppy. Utah needs this win, and need every win they can get. Minny isn't just playing for fun right now, they want to build momentum for next season. It should be an interesting fourth quarter finish by two teams still learning how to close games.
