1. Jazz march away late in third

After shooting over 57 percent in the first half, the Timberwolves suddenly fell cold in the third quarter. Minnesota went scoreless for seven minutes from the 5:05 mark of the third quarter, until the 9:33 mark of the fourth allowing the Jazz to open it up.

Utah went on a 14-0 run over that stretch, turning a 1 point Wolves lead into a 13-point lead for the Jazz.
