Minnesota at Utah Prediction 11/13/2017
The loss of C Rudy Gobert is huge for the Jazz as there is no one on the team that can replace his defense. The Timberwolves may not have C Gorgui Dieng coming off of the bench or I’d be on the OVER here, but I believe that Minnesota can get the win here. They suffered an embarrassing loss as 10-point favorites to the Suns on Saturday and G Jimmy Butler has sounded off on the team, so I expect an all-out effort tonight at the Vivint Smart Home Arena.
