Rodney Hood (concussion) listed as OUT for the Denver game after taking an elbow to the head last night, Jazz PR says.
It might only be 20 games but no one is even close to the Jazz defensively since the ASB http://t.co/vX6Dgpp9nI
Last team to have a defensive rating of 95 for a season. (Jazz have done it for 2 months) is the Chicago Bulls in the 66 game lockout year
For the Jazz to have the #1 defense in the NBA over a two month period with the least experienced roster in NBA is truly unheard of
Jazz will finish March with a defensive rating of 95.2 best in the NBA and 93.2 since All-Star Break.
From Timberwolves PR: Tonight was the 25th time the Jazz have held an opponent under 90 points. Tied w/ Memphis & Milwaukee for the most.
Jazz are back. Two in a row of great defense and ball movement.
It's a final: Jazz edge Wolves 104-84
Final: Jazz 104, Timberwolves 84. Hayward finishes with 22 points, 6 rebounds & 5 assists. Burke 19p, 6a. Booker 17p, 13r. Gobert 15p, 12r.

Wolves and Jazz, just clear out. Let's spend the fourth quarter watching Andrew Wiggins and Rudy Gobert repeatedly meet at the rim. Cool?
Getting smashed by Jazz at home. No matter who is out and how improved Jazz have been, it's not a good look
Jazz up 50-40 over the T Wolves at halftime
Halftime: Jazz 50, Wolves 40. Trey Burke leads all scorers with 14 points. Has really had success getting to the rim the last two games.
Jazz start the second with Jeremy Evans playing the 5 in a small lineup. Back-to-back 3s from Burke & Ingles have Utah up 31-18.
Jazz could have something with Joe Ingles playing that stretch four
Jazz have on floor, Burke, Millsap, Johnson, Ingles and Evans - SMALL
End of 1: Jazz 25, Wolves 18. Rodney Hood scored Utah's first seven points. Hayward has 6, Booker 5. For MIN, Wiggins has 7 & LaVine 5.
Since the Kanter trade, all 25 of the Jazz's top played 3-man combinations are positive in plus-minus. Every single one!
Jazz defensive rating with Rudy Gobert on the floor since the All-Star Break - 93.0
Jazz defensive rating with Trey Burke on the floor Pre All-Star Break: 108.5 Post All-Star Break: 93.2 You figure it out
