In Bluff City, two Western Conference teams square off in an effort to win in order to advance farther in the playoffs. The Utah Jazz are traveling as they head to Memphis, Tennessee, on Wednesday night to play the Grizzlies. In contrast to Memphis, who lost to Boston on the road by a score of 119-109 on Monday night, Utah is coming off a 123-117 victory against Indiana on the road.
In the crowded middle of the Western Conference, Utah is still very much in contention, and a victory tonight would significantly improve their playoff hopes. With 117.7 PPG, the Jazz’s dynamic offense is fourth in scoring. They average 14.1 threes per game, which ranks seventh in the West, making them particularly deadly from beyond the arc.
With Memphis having the third-lowest offensive rebound percentage over their last three games, Utah, who has the sixth-highest offensive rebound rate in the league, should have plenty of opportunity for second chances. Furthermore, Utah has had tremendous success as a road underdog, winning 13 of its last 21 such contests.
Let’s check the latest picks, NBA news, stats and NBA expert picks for Jazz vs Grizzlies. We’ve plenty of NBA predictions for you to consider.
This season, Lauri Markkanen has been the Jazz show’s leading player. Lauri is having a standout season and is vying for the Most Improved Player honor in a close battle. The dynamic forward has a season average of 24.9 PPG and 8.6 RPG. Averaging three threes a game while shooting 41% from beyond the arc, he has been unstoppable.
Memphis, which ranks in the top 10 in both offense and defense, has been among the league’s greatest all-around teams this season. The Grizzlies are second in blocks and fourth in steals, both stats that reflect how well they play defense. Memphis is also excellent as a home favorite, covering 15 of 26 such contests.
Tyus Jones, given his recent success versus the Jazz, could prove to be a significant X-factor tonight. In Utah’s last three meetings, Jones has been outstanding, averaging 18.7 PPG and 6.0 APG while shooting 56% from the field. With Morant healthy, he won’t be required to do as much, but considering Utah’s defensive vulnerability to guards, expect him to have a significant influence.
