Pick, Prediction, & Preview:
Minnesota Timberwolves vs Utah Jazz
The Jazz will welcome the Wolves Vivint Smart Home Arena as they are coming off a win against the Nuggets while the Wolves beat the Lakers in their last game. Game tips off at 9:00 PM ET.
Minnesota Timberwolves's Latest Performance :
The Wolves were able to pick up their third win in a row by taking down the Lakers at home. The Wolves took care of the Lakers by attacking the paint time and time again. Kat was playing on another level as he attacked the Lakers bigs all night long. The Wolves took advantage of the Lakers short-handed roster. With that win, they have a .500. record again as they climb their way up the Western Conference standings. Playing against the Jazz, Kat will look forward to facing Gobert in this game. With both teams playing well at the moment this game should go down to the wire. Derrick Rose should be making his third straight start as he will go up against Mitchell in this game. Bayless has been a great pickup for the Wolves since they are dealing with injuries in their backcourt.
Utah Jazz's Latest Performance :
The Jazz remained hot winning seven of their last eight games. They are coming off a victory against the Nuggets where Mitchell put his team on his back scoring 35 points, six rebounds, six assists, two steals, and two blocks. He became the first player to do that since Karl Malone and the only player to do it while hitting threes. He hit a season-high six threes on the night. He was doing it all for the Jazz against the Nuggets. With that win, the Jazz is now tied with the Spurs for the 6th seed in the West. Ricky Rubio returned to the line-up and scored 17 points with six assists. He was coming off a hamstring injury as he eases his way back into the Jazz’s rotation. Crowder also had a great game as he sealed the win for the Jazz by nailing a four-point paint from the corner. Playing against the Wolves would mean Mitchell will be going up against Derrick Rose who has been playing at an All-Star level for the Wolves this season.

Against The Spread Selection: Utah Jazz
My reason for the pick :
The Jazz will take this game at home over the Wolves. Mitchell will continue to play well for the Jazz and with Rubio back in the rotation, he can slide back to his natural position. He will go neck-to-neck with Rose all game long. The scary thing about the Jazz is that they were on the outside looking in at the start of January now here they are two games behind the Blazers for the 4th seed in the West. It goes to show how important is having a great guard like Mitchell on the team. If the Jazz keeps playing well he might become an All-Star this season. For the Wolves, Towns will have a great game but they can’t simply win on the road this season, go with the Wolves.
