Utah Jazz vs Memphis Grizzlies
Date and Time: Sunday, May 30,2021 7:00 AM IST
Venue: FedEx Forum, Memphis, TN
Prediction: Memphis Grizzlies
After a thrilling Game 2 where the Utah Jazz evened the series with a 141-129 win over the Memphis Grizzlies, they now head on the road to Tennessee. After a surprising loss in Game 1, the Jazz were back to their best on Wednesday night with seven players scoring 14 or more points.
Ja Morant did his best to keep the matchup close, pouring in 47 points and will demand a better defensive performance from the Utah Jazz in Game 3 on Saturday.
Finishing with the No.1 seed and the best record in the NBA brings with it a lot of pressure. Without their star point guard Donovan Mitchell in Game 1, the Utah Jazz looked out of sorts.
Their defense showed signs of weakness, however, and will be something head coach Quin Snyder will be looking to address as they head on the road to Memphis.
The Utah Jazz played like they had all season in Game 2. While their defense failed to stop Morant, their offense was slick and they took advantage of their deep roster of scorers. For the Memphis Grizzlies to stop them, they will have to avoid getting into early foul trouble and rebound the ball more.
If they can do that, the Memphis Grizzlies will fancy their chances of causing another upset with home-court advantage.
