If there is anything we have learned about The Utah Jazz this season, it’s a lot of frustration and inconsistency. One night, they are playing the Phoenix Suns into double overtime. The next they are losing by 31 to the Lakers.

Unfortunately, if you are a Jazz fan reading this, tonight was no different.

As a Jazz fan and a homer at that, I will always enjoy watching Rudy Gobert and Walker Kessler on the same court together. That is sadly where the excitement ended.

Although the Jazz had an admirable first half, putting together good offensive possessions while also keeping the Timberwolves numbers down, it wasn’t enough to hold off those pesky Timberwolves in the second half.

Having Keyonte with the ball in his hands has been important for the Jazz offensive game. Tonight, we continued to see his woes in his shot going just 4-19 on field goals and a rough 1-6 from 3.

Our bright spot on the offensive end came from Simone Fontecchio who shot 50% from the field and had a team-high 16 points.

One thing seems certain to me, the Utah Jazz need leadership on the court. Where will it come from?
