Memphis @ Utah

Current Records: Memphis 4-1; Utah 4-2

What to Know

This Saturday, the Memphis Grizzlies are hoping to patch up the holes in a defense that has allowed an average of 121 points per game. Their road trip will continue as they head to Vivint Arena at 9 p.m. ET Saturday to face off against the Utah Jazz. The Grizzlies will be strutting in after a win while Utah will be stumbling in from a loss.

You’re bound to get a positive result if you outscore your opponent every quarter, and that’s exactly how it played out for the Grizz on Thursday. They enjoyed a cozy 125-110 victory over the Sacramento Kings. Memphis’ shooting guard Desmond Bane looked sharp as he shot 6-for-8 from downtown and finished with 31 points and six rebounds.

Meanwhile, the contest between Utah and the Denver Nuggets on Friday was not particularly close, with Utah falling 117-101. Small forward Lauri Markkanen (17 points) was the top scorer for Utah.

The Grizzlies are the favorite in this one, with an expected 4.5-point margin of victory. They might be worth taking a chance on against the spread as they are currently on a two-game streak of ATS wins.

The Grizz’s win brought them up to 4-1 while the Jazz’s defeat pulled them down to 4-2. The Grizz is 2-1 after wins this season, and Utah is 1-0 after losses.
