SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – The Utah Jazz will face the Minnesota Timberwolves Wednesday night, but the team is no stranger to playing on All Hallows Eve. Over the years, the Jazz have had mixed results when playing on H

In 13 games all-time on the spookiest day of the year, the franchise holds a 7-6 record, including a three game winning streak on Oct. 31. The Jazz have played the majority of their Halloween games away from Utah, holding a 2-6 record on the road while boasting a 5-0 record at home.

Their last game on Halloween resulted in a win in a 97-76 road defeat of the Pacers in 2015. The Jazz were led in scoring by Derrick Favors with 18 while Rudy Gobert turned in a monstrous rebounding performance with 17 boards. Then a member of the Pacers, George Hill led his team in scoring with 17 points.


Utah also turned in one of the highest scoring games in franchise history on Halloween of 1980 with a 144-122 home win over the Dallas Mavericks. In that game, the Jazz shot 61 free throws as a team, which is the 10th most in a game in NBA history. Adrian Dantley, in a 50-point outing, went 26-for-29 at the line. Darrell Griffith also chipped in 37 points in the win.

The Halloween matchup between Utah and the Timberwolves is slated to tip off at 6 p.m. The game will be broadcast on AT&T SportsNet.
