The Grizzlies have been a surprising in the outset of this season. Memphis finished October 4–2 after handling Washington before embarking on a three-game road trip, which starts in Salt Lake City.
The Grizz have wins at home over Atlanta, Phoenix and Washington, which is a trio of fairly terrible teams. The one real surprising win Memphis has is a road win at Utah.
A second trip to SLC in the first seven games of the season means Memphis won’t have to worry about going back to Vivint Arena until next season.
The Grizzlies kept the pace snail-like in that game on the 22nd of October and won, 92–84. Jae Crowder led the Jazz with just fifteen points and only three players from Utah even reached double-digits. The Grizzlies got twenty-three from Mike Conley and eighteen and thirteen from Marc Gasol.
Gasol is clearly way healthier right now than he was at any point last season. Will it persist for eighty-two games? I’m betting not but for the time being, he’s back to being an above-average big, who might even still be capable of reaching his all-star form.
Jaren Jackson Jr. didn’t turn twenty years old until September but he’s shown way more polished than most anybody in Memphis expected out of him in his rookie season.
Triple-J scored twenty-nine points against the Hawks two weeks ago and looks like a winning pick in the way-too-early going for Memphis, which needed to hit on that pick.
The Timberwolves got eight bench points in their 128–125 win over Utah on Halloween night. They did get a career-high 50 from Derrick Rose, who was the story on that night, not just in Minnesota, but in all of the NBA.
Minnesota was at home in that game but also without Jimmy Butler who missed the game due to “general soreness,” according to the injury report.
Utah scored the ball efficiently against a porous Minnesota defense sans Butler but too many turnovers from Ricky Rubio, especially early, hurt them. That, and a complete inability to stop Rose from getting to the rim.
The Jazz has already lost to Memphis once and I would be something just less than shocked if it happened again on this night. Utah has lost both of its home games and this is a team that always thrives at home.
Utah is going to come out determined to win this game. It’s at home and it’s one of the best teams in the entire NBA; it will handle the Grizzlies in this game, however well Memphis playing with a rejuvenated Gasol.

Free Memphis Grizzlies vs. Utah Jazz NBA Prediction: Utah.
You know, I really do believe Utah wins this game, for sure. I’m having reservations about by how many points, though. The Grizzlies look solid, at least, early so I don’t know if I’m willing to lay more than five or six in this one, which probably means it won’t be a play.
