Utah Jazz @ Memphis Grizzlies Live Stream & Tips


The Utah Jazz take on the Memphis Grizzlies in Game Three of their Western Conference Playoffs First Round series on Saturday, May 29. A week ago Memphis pulled off an upset when they defeated top seeds Utah 112-109 to take the opening game in this best-of-seven series. Memphis are seeded eighth. However, in their next game four days later, Utah were convincing winners by 141-129.

During the NBA regular season the Utah Jazz were consistently the best team in the Western Conference, and also topped the overall NBA League which features all the teams from both the Western and Eastern Conferences. The Jazz finished the regular season with a 52-20 record, overall the best record in the NBA for 2021.

For their part, the Memphis Grizzlies finished eighth in the Western Conference. This season in order to make the playoffs, Memphis had to play two additional Play-in games. The Grizzlies scored successive wins over the San Antonio Spurs the Golden State Warriors to make the playoffs. Those results probably gave Memphis the edge in sharpness when they narrowly defeated Utah in their opening playoff match.

In Thursday’s game however, Utah looked back to their best, winning all but the third quarter and scoring 141 points. However, they won’t be too happy about conceding 129 points, normally more than enough for a team to dominate a game. Regardless of their suspect defense, I’m backing the Utah Jazz attack to be too much for the Memphis Grizzlies on Saturday, and for Utah to take a 2-1 lead in this series.

  • Utah finished top of Western Conference
  • Utah 52-20 this season
  • Grizzlies 8th in Western Conference
  • Grizzlies 38-34 this season 

Head to Head


The Memphis Grizzlies and the Utah Jazz have played each other 95 times in regular-season NBA games, with the Jazz currently leading their head-to-head by 62 wins to 33. In their 11 most recent matches over the past three seasons, Utah lead Memphis 7-4. At the start of 2021 their recent head to head was 4-4, but Utah have won all three of their fixtures this season, most recently a 111-107 win in March. So far in their 2021 NBA Playoff series, Utah and Memphis are tied at one win each.

Utah Jazz Form


In the opening match in their NBA Playoff First Round series it was Memphis who grabbed a surprise victory, holding out for a 112-109 win over Utah.  After a decent start, Utah were overwhelmed by the aggression of the Grizzlies, and it wasn’t until they final quarter of the game that the Jazz began to play their best basketball. However it wasn’t enough to change the result.

In the second game four days later, the Jazz came out strong and dominated the first two quarters and were leading by 20 points going into the third. Memphis raised their level and scored 43 points in the third quarter to claw back the difference to just six points. However, Utah floored the gas once again in the final quarter and increased their lead, finishing 141-129 and leveling the series at one-win apiece.

Memphis Grizzlies Form


There’s little doubt the fact that Memphis played two Play-in games to qualify for the playoffs helped their cause when they defeated the Western Conference top seeds Utah Jazz in their opening playoff game 112-109. Despite a strong start from Utah, the Grizzlies were match-fit and sharp and controlled the bulk of the game after that, until the Jazz staged a grandstand finish.

The Utah Jazz went 3-0 against the Grizzlies during the regular season, so Memphis were under no illusion that Utah wouldn’t hit back. However, it was probably something of a shock the way the Jazz played on Wednesday, scoring 141 points and showing scant regard for defense, conceding 129. While the Grizzlies will have been frustrated at their inability to stop Utah from scoring so often, they will no doubt gain hope in the amount of points the Jazz conceded.

Verdict

After two games in the NBA Playoffs First Round matchup between the Utah Jazz and the Memphis Grizzlies, the series is tied at one win each. However, while Memphis barely edged Utah by three points in their opening game a week ago, the Jazz scored 141 points in their midweek rematch, winning by a 12-point margin.
 
While Utah’s lack of defense will surely prove troubling at some stage of these playoffs, I’m backing their attack to carry them through to a second-straight victory over Memphis on Saturday. I’m predicting the Jazz will win this game convincingly by at least 10 points, in a match that will feature 230 points or less.
