The Utah Jazz are allowing 33.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 45 rebounds per game.

Ja Morant is averaging 33.7 points and six assists while Dillon Brooks is averaging 27 points and four rebounds.

The Jazz are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games as a favorite and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Grizzlies are 10-4 ATS in their last 14 games as an underdog and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The over is 7-3 in Jazz last 10 overall. The under is 6-2 in Grizzlies last 8 overall. The under is 31-10 in the last 41 meetings in Memphis. The over is 7-1 in the last 8 meetings.
The Memphis Grizzlies have been in every game of this series and could easily be in the same position as the Jazz with a bounce here or a bounce there. The Utah Jazz won game three by shooting nearly 50 percent from the field and knocking down 19 threes. It's safe to assume that sort of shooting performance won't happen again. The Grizzlies have shown they can compete and this is pretty much a must win game if they have any chance of winning this series. As I've done in every game so far, give me the Grizzlies and the free buckets.
