The Memphis Grizzlies and Utah Jazz meet Monday in NBA action at the Vivint Arena. The Memphis Grizzlies look to get a game above a .500 record. The Utah Jazz look to build on their three-game winning streak.
The Memphis Grizzlies are averaging 109.6 points on 44.3 percent shooting and allowing 114.7 points on 47.5 percent shooting. Ja Morant is averaging 25.1 points and 7 assists, while Dillon Brooks is averaging 19.3 points and 3 rebounds. Desmond Bane is the third double-digit scorer and Jaren Jackson Jr. is dishing 1.1 assists. The Memphis Grizzlies are shooting 33.7 percent from beyond the arc and 77.1 percent from the free throw line. The Memphis Grizzlies are allowing 40.2 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 46.8 rebounds per game.
The Utah Jazz are averaging 112.1 points on 46.7 percent shooting and allowing 102.4 points on 43.6 percent shooting. Donovan Mitchell is averaging 24.4 points and 4.7 assists, while Bojan Bogdanovic is averaging 16.6 points and 4.3 rebounds. Jordan Clarkson is the third double-digit scorer and Rudy Gobert is grabbing 15.1 rebounds. The Utah Jazz are shooting 34 percent from beyond the arc and 78.5 percent from the free throw line. The Utah Jazz are allowing 31.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 47.5 rebounds per game.
The Grizzlies are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 1 days rest. The Jazz are 9-4 ATS in their last 13 home games and 35-17 ATS in their last 52 games following a ATS win. The under is 4-1 in Grizzlies last 5 road games. The under is 7-3 in Jazz last 10 Monday games. The Grizzlies are 2-5 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Utah and 0-4 ATS in the last 4 meetings.
The Memphis Grizzlies feel like a team that still hasn't found their footing, and that blowout loss to the Timberwolves is quite concerning. The Utah Jazz aren't covering numbers like they were last season, but they're still profitable. The Jazz are also winning their last five games by an average of 10.4 points, and they win at home by an average of 10.6 points. Big number and the Grizzlies are capable of playing better, but I have no choice but to lean toward the Jazz at home here.
