The Jazz blow an 18-point second quarter lead, and even still led by nine with under six minutes to go. They were outscored 36-21 in the 4th to lose for the fifth time in the last six games.
Luke Ridnour had 17 & 6, and hit the buzzer beater to clinch the Minnesota victory. Nikola Pekovic had 17 & 12, and J.J. Barrea led the T-Wolves with 22. The Jazz held Kevin Love to just 10 points, but he grabbed 10 boards.
Paul Millsap led all scorers, finishing with 25 & 9. Josh Howard had a nice game with 19 & 6, while Al Jefferson added in 18 & 11.
Kanter and Favors played just a combined 20 minutes.
This is one of the Jazz worst losses in a season of quite a few bad losses. They had this one for the duration of the game, only to blow it in the final minutes. They had held off Minnesota runs earlier in the game, but couldn’t do it when it mattered most.
Utah falls to 15-17, going just 3-11 on the road.
