Memphis Grizzlies Form & Team News


Memphis drew first blood in this series thanks to Dillon Brooks, Ja Morant and Jonas Valanciunas.

Brooks put up 31 points and Morant contributed 26, while Valanciunas notched 12 rebounds, as the Grizzlies won Game 1 112-109.

They were brought back down to Earth in Game 2 as they struggled defensively in a 141-129 defeat.

Morant, Brooks and Valanciunas all had strong games in Game 3 but could not prevent Memphis from losing 121-111.

And with the trio’s numbers dipping slightly in Game 4, it was no real surprise to see them fall to a 120-113 defeat.

The Grizzlies are now on the brink of bowing out – every game from now on is ‘win or go home’.

The good news for Memphis is that only Sean McDermott (foot) is listed on the injury report and he is day-to-day.

Utah Jazz Form & Team News


Utah were strong at home throughout the regular season but fell to a 112-109 defeat in Game 1.

However, the return of Donovan Mitchell gave the Jazz the spark they needed for Game 2 and they have not looked back.

The Jazz put up their second best points total of the entire season level the series with a 141-29 win.

Mitchell racked up 25 points in 26 minutes in that one, and he then put up 29 as Utah took Game 3 by a score of 121-111.

Mitchell topped that performance with a 30-point showing in Game 4, and that proved to be the catalyst for a 120-113 win for Utah.

One more victory will see the Jazz through and they are in good health for Game 5.

Only Miye Oni (back) and Elijah Hughes (illness) are listed on the injury report and are not ruled out.
