Wolves 83, Jazz 109

From Rick Alonzo/Pioneer Press:
Timberwolves coach Randy Wittman said after Thursday's practice he might change the rotations in search of a spark, so it wasn't a big surprise when new combinations of players hit the court late in the first quarter and early in the second Friday.

But the new rotations backfired, and the Wolves fell behind big in the second quarter to Utah...

AP Recap

Box Score

From Kent Youngblood/Star Tribune:
The tipoff was delayed by a half-hour when it was discovered during warmups that one of the baskets was too high and had to be replaced. All it did was delay the inevitable. The Wolves have lost consecutive home games by 26 points and have lost five of their past six. This five-game home stand ended with a 1-4 record.

"Consistency is the big question here," Garnett said. "I've always said it. It's something we don't have. We're in March and we still don't have a real identity."
