EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – Before they play the New Jersey Nets here tonight, a few lingering thoughts from Minnesota coach Kurt Rambis after his Timberwolves – for the second time in as many tries this season – beat the Jazz on Monday night at EnergySolutions Arena:
“If I knew the formula, I would have played them that way against every single team,” Rambis said.
“The guys came out and did a lot of good things, executing our offensive game plan, moving the basketball, so they gave themselves easy scoring opportunities,” he added. “I thought our defense was solid. It was not great, but it was solid.”
So those are the secrets.
The Jazz, for the record, visit Minnesota on Dec. 30 and play the Timberwolves at home again on March 17.
Last time the Timberwolves have swept the Jazz in a season series?
