Timberwolves Vs. Jazz Final Score: Minnesota Falls Back To .500 With Overtime Loss In Utah

Every time the Minnesota Timberwolves get above .500, they can't seem to build on it. Although they battled back to force overtime on Thursday night, the Timberwolves dropped back to the .500 mark due to a 111-105 loss to the Utah Jazz.

Utah was on top for the majority of the game after taking the lead midway through the first quarter. After increasing their lead to 12 late in the fourth quarter, the game appeared all but over. However, Minnesota responded with a 17-6 run in the last three minutes and a Luke Ridnour bucket with 11 seconds left pulled the Timberwolves within one. After a Gordon Hayward free throw, Nikola Pekovic made a layup with less than a second remaining to force overtime.

Unfortunately, Utah controlled overtime like they did much of regulation, outscoring the Timberwolves 12-6.

Minnesota will look to get back above .500 when they take the court again tomorrow against the Los Angeles Lakers.

Timberwolves Vs. Jazz Score Update: Minnesota Trail In Utah, 53-46

The Minnesota Timberwolves are in Utah Thursday night, attempting to get two games above the .500 mark and make some headway in the Western Conference standings. The Jazz aren't out of the playoff picture yet, either, sitting just 3.5 games back of the No. 8 seed. At the half, the Jazz have the best of the Timberwolves, 53-46.

The Timberwolves led 16-12 halfway through the first quarter, but the Jazz then went on an 11-2 run and haven't trailed since. In the second quarter, they were able to get the lead up to 10, but Minnesota worked it back down to seven before the half.

Kevin Love leads the Timberwolves, as usual, with 11 points and six rebounds, but he is shooting just 3-for-9. Devin Harris and Paul Millsap each have 10 for the Jazz.
