Memphis Grizzlies vs Utah Jazz: Prediction and Betting Tips
Memphis Grizzlies aiming for a series-tying home win
After winning the first game of the series in Utah, the Grizzlies lost the next two matches to NBA’s best team in the regular season, Utah Jazz. Memphis have shown in games two and three that they are not an easy opponent and will fight to show their playoff berth was not just a coincidence.
Jo Morant has put on amazing performances in the series so far averaging 33.7 points per game and although he is not making many three-point shots, the 21-year-old point guard is shooting well above his 45% average shooting in the regular season with 51% in the playoffs.
Coach Taylor Jenkins hopes they can have the kind of defensive performance they had in the first match where the Grizzlies had 12 steals en route to their surprising victory in game one.
Utah Jazz looking sharp after game one wake-up call
The Jazz found themselves back in games two and three after a wake-up call in the first game. In game three, Donavan Mitchell and Mike Conley were on top form and were the architects of their team’s win as they combined to score 57 points coupled with 13 assists.
Once again coach Quin Snyder’s men were lethal from the three-point arc scoring 19 of 43 attempts with an average of 44.2%. The Jazz may not be as dominant in games as we are used to but they have excellent players with which coach Snyder can rotate his team without losing the efficiency of his team’s performance.
- Memphis are Averaging 117.3 points per game in the playoffs
- Utah are averaging 123.7 points per game in the playoffs
- The Grizzlies have a 47% shooting record from all distances
- The Jazz have a 48% shooting record from all distances
Memphis Grizzlies vs Utah Jazz Prediction
After the first game defeat of the series, Utah bounced backed quickly and managed to win both games two and three by improving their three-point shot percentage and some very intense defending by all players.
After eliminating the Warriors in the play-in tournament, Memphis took the confidence they gained into game one against Utah and won. But coach Snyder could regroup his team and the return of Mitchell made all the difference in the next games.
We predict Utah to go on with their form and win game four. Mitchell, Conley, and Gobert are too hot to handle for Memphis at the moment as the jazz look set for another win in Memphis.
