Pick, Prediction, & Preview:
Utah Jazz vs Memphis Grizzlies
The Grizzlies will welcome the Jazz to FedEx Forum as they are coming off a win against the Sixers in overtime while the Jazz was able to take down the Celtics in their last game. Game tips off at 8:00 PM ET.
Utah Jazz's Latest Performance :
The Jazz will begin their five-game road trip against the Grizzlies they are coming off a victory against the Celtics in their last game. Leading the way for the Jazz was Joe Ingles as he matched a career high with 27 points on the night. He shot 10-of-14 from the floor. After scoring the opening basket of the game, Ingles carried his hot hand throughout the first half as he went into the main break with 20 points to his name. His shooting ability is crucial to this Jazz team as he put that on display last postseason when the Jazz took down the Thunder. Donovan Mitchell scored 21 points in the win but he still needs to work on his shot selections as he was 5-for-14 from the floor. He will have to work hard for his looks in the next game because he will be going up against an elite defender in Conley. Crowder will hope he can continue his hot shooting as he dropped 20 points against the Celtics in his last game. Gobert hit 6-of-8 shots as he finished the game with 17 points he will be matched up with Gasol in the next game.
Memphis Grizzlies 's Latest Performance :
The Grizzlies are coming off an impressive victory over the Sixers in overtime despite knowing what was going on with the Jimmy Butler trade. The Grizzlies have now won two games in a row Nuggets and Sixers. Conley scored a season-high 32 points he entered the game shooting 32 percent from the field in the last five games, converted 12 of 24 shots in the game. That included scoring 13 points in the third quarter, making 6 of 8 shots to help Memphis erase a Philadelphia lead that earlier had reached 16 points. Marc Gasol scored 18 points and 12 rebounds, while Garrett Temple finished with 17. At the start of the year, everyone thought that the Grizzlies are going to spend another year at the bottom half of the West instead of with Conley and Gasol back healthy they are looking strong as ever and are giving some of the big teams a run for their money. Memphis always played with grit but health was always an issue for them so it is great to see them bounce back in such a way. Playing against the Jazz Conley will have to do his best to contain Mitchell from going off and we will get to see a great battle down low between Gasol and Gobert.

Against The Spread Selection: Memphis Grizzlies
My reason for the pick :
The Grizzlies will remain undefeated at home as they will beat the Jazz in a close contest. Both teams are coming off impressive wins I have to go with the home and away record in this game as it is tough not to go with the Grizzlies in this game. There is a reason why they are undefeated at home and the Grizzlies get the job done with their defense. For the Jazz, Mitchell will have a tough time finding his shot with Conley guarding him and I don’t see Ingles having another 20 plus point effort in this one.
