    After a rough loss late last night in Portland, the Wolves have a quick turnaround in Utah where they face off with the Jazz. After failing to secure the tie-breaker against the Trail Blazers last night, the Wolves can still secure one tonight, though the Jazz have been on an absolute tear of late.

    Having won 12-of-14 games dating back to the end of January, the Jazz only lost their first game in February just last week. The return of Rudy Gobert has solidified their elite defense, while rookie sensation Donovan Mitchell has continued to stay hot as the focal point of their offense.

    The Jazz went from nine games under .500 and risking falling out of playoff contention to one game above .500 and right in the thick of the playoff hunt. They have the largest hill of any team to climb, but they certainly have the talent to make a push. They only need to put up enough points because their defense can stop nearly any opponent.
