The Jazz take their five-game win streak on the road tonight when we visit the pesky Minnesota Timberwolves. The Wolves are just 1-5 since losing star Al Jefferson to a season-ending knee injury and we have won both of our clashes with them this season. But the Jazz are just 9-17 on the road this season, and this is the type of winnable road game we have let slip away too often over the last couple seasons.
Portland lost last night and Denver has lost three straight. We are now only one game behind the Blazers and three behind the Nuggets. We still have a shot at taking the Northwest Division Championship, but to do so we are going to have to be hungry like the wolf, starting tonight in Minnesota.
