Grizzlies vs Jazz Game 4 Betting Preview
The Gold Sheet offers their NBA betting preview for Monday night’s Western Conference showdown between the Memphis Grizzlies and Utah Jazz. After dropping Game 1 in Utah as a strong home favorite, the Jazz have rebounded to take a 2-1 series advantage. Can Memphis protect their home court on Monday night and turn this into a three-game series?

Utah has overcome a hiccup in the first game when it lost at home to Memphis 112-109 by bouncing back to score a pair of double-digit wins over the Grizzlies despite Ja Morant turning in 47 and 28-point games in the intervening games. The Jazz surge corresponds to the return to action of G Donovan Mitchell, who has recovered from a long layoff to score just shy of a point a minute (27 ppg playing 27.7 mpg). Utah C Rudy Gobert has been highly effective, scoring 16 ppg on 87% (yes 87%!) shooting while taking 14 rpg and blocking almost 4 shots per game, and PG Mike Conley has stepped it up, contributing 23 ppg and dishing 11.3 apg in the first 3 games. Granted, Jordan Clarkson is shooting just 37% (only 14% on treys), but Bojan Bogdanovic is scoring 21 ppg and hitting 51%. Normally defensively-tough Memphis has had obvious problems preventing the Jazz (124 ppg & 49% as a team) from scoring, but feel Grizzlies have a solid chance to get their stop-end game back on track.

Memphis has maintained an edge in the turnover and steal battle, and Ja Morant has played impeccably, scoring 33.7 ppg and shooting 51%, so believe Griz HC Taylor Jenkins will have some answers. Desperation effort is at hand for a Memphis side that’s faced with serious elimination questions if it returns to Salt Lake City, where the Jazz are 32-6 SU, down 3-1, as opposed to even at 2-2. Much like Trae Young, Ja Morant is a supernova waiting to explode, and expect a top effort in this outing. Also see Griz C Jonas Valanciunas and PF Jaren Jackson lending more support to Morant and fellow budding star G Dillon Brooks (27 ppg, 53% FGs in series). Play Memphis.
