Just three days ago the Utah Jazz got blasted by the Timberwolves in Minnesota.  Not having Hayward feels like it has finally caught up to the young Jazz.  Tonight the Jazz are supposed to get Hayward back but now Derrick Favors is a game-time decision for an injury to the hip as well.  Coming back to Utah the Jazz should fare well as they will look to not get embarrassed two games in a row.

The problem I have is the T-wolves are a much better team than their record.  They are 0-11 in games decided by 4 points or less and are still projected to make the playoffs over Dallas which has a 4 1/2 game lead over them.

With no Favors, Kanter will get time to show his stuff but I don’t think tonight will be the night that he really shines.  I think the Jazz keep it close but ultimately fall short.

My Prediction: Jazz 95 T-Wolves 98
