A couple teams riding three game win streaks meet up in Salt Lake City on Friday. Memphis has wins over Golden State, Boston, and OKC in the last week, but that hasn’t impressed oddsmakers.
The Jazz have also been victorious in their last three, beating Toronto, Chicago, and Brooklyn. Their last two wins over the Bulls and Nets have come by a combined 55 points so this team is clicking.
The Grizzlies are a real balanced team, but they are still +9.5 underdogs when they visit Vivint Arena on Friday night. Dillon Brooks had 25 points to lead a 116-107 win over the Thunder on Wednesday.
The Jazz have the #4 defense in the NBA, so Memphis will need as many contributions as they can get. Luckily the Grizzlies offense seems to be turning a corner after three straight games scoring 103 or less.
Memphis has now put up 111+ in three straight, including 132 points in the OT win over Boston. Brooks had 24 vs. the Celtics and 19 the game before that in a victory over Golden State.
One Grizzlies player who has really stepped up his game lately is Jonas Valanciunas. It’s always a battle going up against Rudy Gobert, but Valanciunas has a 15+ rebound double-double in four straight.
Utah has beaten up some inferior foes during their win streak. Toronto was in the midst of a 9-game losing streak, the Bulls are starting to falter, and the Nets were playing without James Harden and Kyrie Irving.
Wins are wins though, and the Jazz have maintained a three game lead over the Suns for the top spot in the Western Conference. It helps being back in Salt Lake City too, as Utah is 17-2 at home this season.
Utah has a great defense, but Memphis isn’t far behind them ranking an under-the-radar 6th in efficiency this season. The Jazz offense has been clicking though, putting up at least 114 points in 13 straight.
The Jazz are 3rd in scoring this season and 5th in the NBA in points allowed. It’s not hard to see why they have the best record in the league, especially when home games are nearly an automatic W.

Free Memphis Grizzlies vs. Utah Jazz NBA Prediction:
9.5 seems like a lot of points in this one, but the Jazz not only win at home – they win big. The Grizzlies are getting great play from their big man, and Brooks is on fire. Ja Morant has been no slouch lately either with 29 in the win over Boston.
Ultimately though, this game comes down to a couple solid defenses. Both teams have an interior presence, and the total seems a little on the high side at 228.
