Somehow the Utah Jazz have only lost 16 games this season and two of them have come at the hands of the Minnesota Timberwolves. On today’s pod, we discuss Saturday night’s well-rounded win in Utah — and the parts that feel like meaningful signals for what could be coming.

  • Why the right types of wins can be more valuable than simply pursuing lottery balls
  • Cutting around Karl-Anthony Towns versus spacing around Karl-Anthony Towns. And how Rudy Gobert and the Jazz handled the KAT chess match in Game 1
