Timberwolves rocked by Jazz in home finale, 96-80


The Timberwolves were blown out in its home finale by the Utah Jazz, 96-80 Monday night at Target Center.

Former Wolves star Al Jefferson, who scored 40 points in Utah's win over Minnesota last Friday, led the Jazz with 22 points and 8 rebounds.

Derrick Williams scored 18 points in 40 minutes. He was the only Minnesota starter to score in double-figures.

The rest of the starters -- Ricky Rubio, Luke Ridnour, Andrei Kirilenko and Greg Steimsma -- combined for 25 points.

Nikola Pekovic was held out of the game because of a left calf contusion.

The Wolves finished with a 20-21 record at home. Minnesota closes the season Wednesday at San Antonio.
