Utah Jazz vs. Minnesota Timberwolves Live Game Blog: Who Wins Northwest Battle?
Tonight, the 6-23 Minnesota Timberwolves take on the 20-9 Utah Jazz, who are currently tied with the Oklahoma City Thunder for first place in the Northwest division.
Although Minnesota has struggled of late, they have two great players in Martell Webster and Jonny Flynn, who both recently returned from injuries.
Al Jefferson will be making his return to Target Center tonight. Jefferson was traded in the offseason to the Jazz for Kosta Koufos and two first-rounders.

Well, I guess the tip will be a little later than I expected.
Tip-off in less than five minutes. Get ready for a high scoring affair tonight.
I'm expecting Jonny to get more minutes tonight than usual. Minnesota needs to continue his progression.
Minnesota has lost 14 of its last 16 games.
I expect a big game, as always, from Deron Williams tonight. He's prone to destroying Minnesota's defense.
About 20 minutes away from tip-off.
Match-up to watch:
Kevin Love (Minnesota)
Paul Millsap (Utah)
Al Jefferson (Utah)
Center, Nikola Pekovic, will not play for the Timberwolves tonight. This is somewhat good news for Al Jefferson.
