Memphis Grizzlies @ Utah Jazz Tips 


The Memphis Grizzlies take on the Utah Jazz in an NBA Western Conference regular season game on Saturday, March 27. Memphis are currently ninth in the Western Conference, while Utah have been in top-spot for most of the season. The Grizzlies had been in the top-eight until recently, and will need to return there if they wish to make the playoffs. 

This will be the first time these two teams have played each other in 2021, with the return game scheduled for Sunday, and a third meeting to take place in Thursday (April 1). Both teams go into Saturday’s match in good form, and each has won their last three games. 

On Thursday (March 25), Memphis defeated the Oklahoma City Thunder 116-107, while on the same day Utah destroyed the Brooklyn Nets 118-88. I’m backing the Jazz to defeat the Grizzlies in a hard-fought encounter, winning by a margin of just over ten points. 

  • Memphis 3rd  in Southwest Division 
  • Memphis 21-20 this season
  • Utah top of Northwest Division 
  • Utah 32-11 this season

Head to Head


The Memphis Grizzlies and the Utah Jazz have played each other a total of 92 times, with Utah currently leading their head-to-head by 59 wins to 33. In the past two seasons they played each other eight times, with honors split evenly at four wins each. In their most recent meeting in August 2020, the Utah Jazz defeated the Memphis Grizzlies 124-115. 

Memphis Grizzlies Form


The Memphis Grizzlies are currently third in the Western Conference Southeast Division, behind leaders the Dallas Mavericks and second-placed San Antonio Spurs. Memphis have won 21 games and lost 20 for a 0.512 win percentage. The problem with the Grizzlies this season has been inconsistency, and while they are capable of winning games, they are just as capable of losing them. 

After winning seven-straight games in late January, Memphis lost four on the bounce and have since struggled to regain top form – until now. The Grizzlies are currently enjoying a sequence of four wins in their last five games, and now go into three games in five days against the best team in the NBA – the Utah Jazz. 

Utah Jazz Form


The Utah Jazz are top of the Western Conference, a position they have held all season. Utah currently have the best record in the NBA, with 32 wins against 11 defeats for a 0.744 win percentage. The only team that comes close to that record is the Eastern Conference leaders the Philadelphia 76ers, with a 31-13 record, and 0.705 win percentage. 

Utah are on a three-match win streak, and on Thursday defeated the Eastern Conference no.3 ranked Brooklyn Nets in emphatic fashion 118-88, a 30-point winning margin. The Jazz’s top points’ scorer was Donovan Mitchell with 27, and Mitchell has been Utah’s main points’ provider in 12 of their last 15 matches.

Verdict

The recent head-to-head between the Memphis Grizzlies and the Utah Jazz is 4-4 over the past two seasons, revealing that games between them tend to be evenly balanced and highly competitive. However, in 2021 Utah have a team that has been the best in the NBA all season, and could well win the championship.
 
I’m backing the Jazz to defeat the Grizzlies on Saturday in a hard-fought game, winning by a margin of just over ten points in a match that will feature around 220 points.
