Smooth sailing for Jazz in win over Wolves

SALT LAKE CITY (NBA.com exclusive) -- The Utah Jazz never seem to have an easy time against the Minnesota Timberwolves, and Wednesday's game started out to be another struggle.

But an early wake-up call from coach Jerry Sloan and a renewed emphasis on getting the ball inside, making the extra pass and playing defense allowed the Jazz to cruise to a 122-100 win over the Timberwolves. Utah (44-24) was able to salvage a season-split with Minnesota (14-55) with the victory.

"We did a little better job in the second half trying to defend, trying to get the ball inside," Sloan said. "We started the game again trying to take all the outside shots, trying to get our averages before we started to play and that's always kind of frustrating. But we got the win and that's the most important thing."

The Jazz knew they couldn't take the Timberwolves lightly after Minnesota had won the last two meetings between the two teams in Utah. The Jazz are one of two teams, along with the Nets, that Minnesota has defeated twice this season.

Trouble was brewing for the Jazz early, as the Timberwolves went on a 12-0 run to take a 14-6 lead. A timeout by Sloan slowed Minnesota's momentum.

"He didn't have to say too much," said Jazz forward Paul Millsap, who came off the bench to lead the Jazz with 21 points. "He just gives us that look. When he gives us that look, we know what to do."

Utah regrouped from its slow start and eventually created some space between the two teams. The game was tied at 32-32 before the Jazz went on a 13-2 run. The Timberwolves missed five straight shots during the spurt, and the Jazz had five players score, including Kyle Korver, who drained a 3-pointer.

After the Jazz went up 45-34, they maintained control through the remainder of the game. The Timberwolves got within six points three times during the third quarter, but Utah ended the final threat on a 6-0 mini-run that started when Deron Williams unleashed a nasty dunk over the 6-foot-10 Al Jefferson.

Getting the ball inside in Utah's half-court sets proved to be one of the keys to the game. The Jazz got several close looks in the second half and shot 60.4 percent after the break. For the game, they scored a whopping 72 points in the paint.

"We had to put some pressure on their defense," Millsap said. "When we get it inside, good things happen -- we kick out to the wide-open shooters, guys pass and cut. When we do that we're at our best, so it's real important to get the ball down low and attack them there."

Utah was also sparked by its defense. The Jazz collected 15 steals with 10 of them coming in the second half.

Korver, who turned 29-years-old on Wednesday, scored a season-high 20 points for the Jazz. Carlos Boozer recorded his 45th double-double of the season with 19 points and 11 rebounds. Williams, who had nine points and 11 assists, had his 21st straight game of dishing at least nine assists. It's the longest single-season streak in the NBA since the 1996-97 season.

Not all was well with the Jazz though. They're a banged-up team as they prepare for their Friday night showdown with the Phoenix Suns. Andrei Kirilenko restrained his left calf that had kept him out of Utah's previous two games in the third quarter and did not return.

Williams suffered a mild ankle sprain and a shoulder contusion. Rookie Wesley Matthews suffered a mild left MCL sprain in the third quarter. All three are questionable for Friday's game.

"We've got some guys banged up, but we've had some guys come in and step up and play basketball," Millsap said. "It's all part of the season. I think everyone is (banged up) a little."

Matthews showed why he's a Sloan favorite against the Timberwolves.

He hurt his knee while driving to the basket early in the third quarter, and had to be helped off the floor. Following a timeout, he stayed in the game and made two free throws. On Minnesota's next possession, he stole a pass by Darko Milicic and scored on a layup.

"He was all over the place trying to do things," Sloan said. "He's having to play guys a lot bigger than he is, and he's taking on that challenge and helping us tremendously. His energy -- it's been fun to watch."

The Timberwolves are trying to maintain their energy level with nothing to play for. They've lost 11 straight games and 17 of their last 18. Their effort was better than it was against Phoenix the previous night when they gave up 152 points, and that's all coach Kurt Rambis can ask for at this point.

"These guys have been very resilient all year," Rambis said. "We know we have put them in a very difficult situation. So we have encouraged them to play together and play hard. Regardless of anything that happens there on the floor just do those two aspects, and they will learn and they will develop."
