The Jazz (30-20) have had an up-and-down season by their standards but still find themselves with the Northwest Division lead and a home playoff series if the season were to end today, while the Timberwolves (24-25) they’re under .500 again this season. Minnesota has lost two games in a row to the two best teams in the NBA and their reward is another one of the best teams in the NBA today.

This season has been a nightmare for Minnesota when they see Utah on the schedule. Through three games, Utah is averaging 128.0 points per game and giving up 109.3 points to Minnesota.
That’s 7.3 points per game (minimum three games played) more than Utah scores against any other team in the NBA.
Mitchell is putting up 34.3 points, 5.3 rebounds and 4.7 assists per game against Minnesota this season with splits of 56-44-94. That is by far Mitchell’s best start and scoring against a team this season with multiple games played.
For his career, Mitchell is averaging 24.9 points, 4.3 assists and 3.6 rebounds per game in 41-43-81 divisions through 14 games, some of his best numbers against a team in his career thus far.
A win today would be a sweep of the season series for Utah, after Minnesota swept the season series last year against a Utah team that had the best record in the NBA.
