NBA FREE PICK: Take Utah. According to latest NBA trends, Utah is 6-1 ATS last 7 in series, 5-0 ATS last 5 road games, 4-1 ATS last 5 playing on 2 days rest,  9-3 ATS last 12 vs. a team with a losing record and 9-4 ATS last 13 overall.  Minnesota is 2-7 ATS last 9 vs. Northwest Division, 5-16-1 ATS last 22 following a SU win and 2-5-1 ATS last 8 on Monday. 

Utah (42-38 SU, 41-38-1 ATS, 39-40-1 O/U) is coming off a 107-100 win over Minnesota at home, giving 9.5 on Friday. Minnesota (30-50 SU, 37-40-3 ATS,  36-42-2 O/U) beat Phoenix at home on Saturday, laying 4.5. Utah has no margin for error. A loss here means they are two games behind the Lakers with one game to play. They have to beat 
Minnesota, who is 20-20 SU at home. Al Jefferson matched his career high by  scoring 40 points and grabbed 13 rebounds in Utah's win. He's averaging 17.7  points and 9.2 rebounds this year. The problem for Minnesota is that center  Nikola Pekovic is coming off a calf contusion and might not play. Journeyman  Greg Steimsma is just not strong enough to defend the burly Jefferson. Utah has won four straight in this series and has covered six of the last seven. Expect them to roll in a must-win situation. Utah  visits the Target Center in Minneapolis to take on the Timberwolves at 8pmET.
