Saturday's NBA schedule
consists of eight games, one of which being the matchup between the Jazz and Timberwolves. The most intriguing matchup in that game has to be Utah's Rudy Gobert and Minnesota's Karl-Anthony Towns
, with the former being a high-level defender and the latter being one of the NBA's best and versatile young players. The two teams last met November 28
, with the Jazz winning in Minneapolis by nine and Gobert doing a good job of defending Towns. Towns finished the game with 19 points and 12 rebounds, but he shot just 8-for-19 from the field as Utah harassed the big man throughout in the night.
As for Gobert, he finished the first meeting with 16 points, 17 rebounds and three blocked shots, and with his status as arguably the best defensive big man in the NBA. Towns will more opportunities to score within his team's system, but that also means that Gobert won't lack for opportunities defensively. Here are Saturday's FanDuel picks, using the rules of a nine-player roster and a $60,000 salary cap. Note: Some stats courtesy of Basketball Reference. (Getty)
