KEY GAME INFORMATION
MINNESOTA: LAST SEASON: 47-35, lost in first round.
COACH: Tom Thibodeau (third season, eighth NBA season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Jeff Teague (14.2 ppg), G Derrick Rose (8.4 ppg) OR Jimmy Butler (22.2 ppg), F Andrew Wiggins (17.7 ppg), F Taj Gibson (12.2 ppg), C Karl-Anthony Towns (21.3 ppg).
KEY LOSSES: G Jamal Crawford, F Nemanja Bjelica
KEY ADDITIONS: F Anthony Tolliver, G Josh Okogie, F Keita Bates-Diop, F Luol Deng
PLAYERS TO WATCH: Butler requested a trade less than a week before the beginning of training camp. Thibodeau has said the Wolves will only grant his wish if they find a deal that makes sense for them, but the likelihood of Butler joining them on the floor after all the bluster is low. Assuming a trade is consummated, the Wolves would almost certainly receive a starter as part of a package. For now, Rose is playing the shooting guard spot after a decent showing down the stretch last season as yet another former Chicago Bulls player to reunite with Thibodeau.
OUTLOOK: Though the Wolves were able to celebrate their return to the playoffs last spring after a 13-year absence, they were already facing a rough road back in a rugged Western Conference that only got deeper over the summer. Then Butler's unhappiness came to a head. The good news for the Wolves is that Towns has continued to improve into one of the game's best big men with a smooth 3-point shot to boot, and at age 22 he already has his super-max contract signed. Even if this season proves to be a step back, Towns will be the franchise cornerstone for years to come.
UTAH: LAST SEASON: 48-34, lost in Western Conference semifinals
COACH: Quin Snyder (fifth season)
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Ricky Rubio (13.1 ppg), G Donovan Mitchell (20.5 ppg), F Joe Ingles (11.5 ppg), F Derrick Favors (12.3 ppg), C Rudy Gobert (13.5 ppg).
KEY LOSSES: F Jonas Jerebko
KEY ADDITIONS: G Grayson Allen PLAYER TO WATCH: Mitchell. His emergence keyed Utah's dominant run to close out the regular season a year ago. Can Mitchell continue to elevate his game in his sophomore NBA season? His rookie season exceeded all expectations as he carved an identity as an electrifying scorer. The Jazz benefited from his scoring punch late in games. Mitchell finished the season averaging 20.5 points while shooting 43.7 percent from the field.
OUTLOOK: Utah appeared headed for the lottery until putting together a dramatic turnaround over the final 35 games last season. With all of last season's key players back in place, the Jazz are counting on continuity and chemistry to help them become a serious postseason threat among Western Conference teams in 2018-19.
PREVIEW
Jazz try to shake doldrums versus T-wolves
 

Three losses in four games have left the Utah Jazz with little room for error in the NBA playoff race.

Utah is currently in seventh place in the Western Conference heading into Thursday night's home game against the Minnesota Timberwolves. The Jazz are only 4 1/2 games ahead of Sacramento for that final playoff spot after beating the Phoenix Suns 114-97 on Wednesday night.

Utah looked stronger on offense against Phoenix after struggling in a 98-89 loss to Oklahoma City on Monday. The Jazz shot 46.7 percent from the field and also generated 30 assists on 42 baskets. Donovan Mitchell led the way with 26 points on 10-for-18 shooting.

One constant in both games was solid defensive play. Utah forced 12 turnovers and scored 23 points off turnovers against the Thunder. Then, against the Suns, the Jazz forced 12 turnovers that led to 19 points the other way.

"The offense will come," Jazz coach Quin Snyder said after Monday's loss to the Thunder. "We just have to maintain a defensive mindset when it's a tough night offensively."

Minnesota is looking to bounce back after losing to Denver 133-107 on Tuesday, snapping a two-game winning streak. Karl-Anthony Towns had a monster effort after returning from a one-game absence. Towns scored 34 points, pulled down 10 rebounds and blocked three shots.

It wasn't enough to keep the Nuggets from pulling away midway through the fourth quarter. Defense failed Minnesota. Denver shot 60 percent from the field and hit 18 3-pointers. The Timberwolves ultimately couldn't overcome their shortened bench. Jeff Teague, Derrick Rose, Andrew Wiggins, Luol Deng and Robert Covington were all sidelined with injuries.

"I give our players a lot of credit. They're playing really hard," interim coach Ryan Saunders told the Star-Tribune after Tuesday's game. "With guys out, we have guys trying to step into those roles and sometimes it can get tough. When you step into other roles you might not be used to."

Towns will likely be a critical factor again against Utah on Thursday to counteract the Jazz big man duo of Rudy Gobert and Derrick Favors. In his past eight games, Towns has dominated on offense. He has posted 35 points and 13.6 rebounds per game in that stretch while shooting 59.2 percent from the field and 47.2 percent from the 3-point line.

Stopping Towns has been a problem for Utah this season. He is averaging 27.7 points, 10.7 rebounds and 5.0 assists per game against the Jazz while shooting 58.7 percent from the field and 50 percent from the 3-point line.

The Jazz have won two of three meetings between the two teams this season. Utah earned both victories over a three-day stretch in late January, beating the Timberwolves 106-102 on Jan. 25 and 125-111 two nights later.

Mitchell and Gobert have performed well in the series. Gobert has averaged 19.0 points, 11.0 rebounds and 3.7 blocks against Minnesota. Mitchell has posted 26.3 points and 7.0 assists per contest.
