Wednesday, June 2nd the Utah Jazz will host the Memphis Grizzlies in Game 5 seeking to finish the series on a gentleman’s sweep.
Utah won Game 4 by 120-113 but had to hold off Memphis repeatedly as they refused to wave the white flag. If you just checked out the final scores and missed the games you’re missing out on arguably the most entertaining series of the first round.
The Jazz holds the all-time record between the clubs with 62 wins in 95 meetings. The Jazz swept the three games in the regular season and hold a current six-game win streak versus the Grizzlies.
Although the Utah Jazz won both games in Memphis this series has been one of the most entertaining of the first round with the Grizzlies never giving up and repeatedly fighting back to cut double-digit deficits.
While the Jazz will likely close out the series on Wednesday, Taylor Jenkins and his very young roster are learning invaluable lessons that will reap rewards in future seasons.
Ja Morant and Dillon Brooks have stepped into the playoff spotlight and with Jaren Jackson Jr. still just 21-years old the core of the Grizzlies and future is very bright.
In Game 4, Morant delivered a double-double of 23 points and 12 assists albeit on a rough shooting night (8 of 21). Jonas Valanciunas also registered a double-double of 14 points and 12 rebounds.
Brooks was mired in foul trouble yet again (with a few questionable calls) but scored 21 as did Jackson Jr. De’Anthony Melton provided a spark off the bench dropping 15 points all in the final frame.
Donovan Mitchell is still finding his rhythm but a big factor in the last two victories in his game management. While the Grizzlies never stop fighting their inexperience shows particularly closing out quarters.
That’s where Mitchell is applying the lessons learned in the previous postseasons and it’s paying dividends. Mike Conley has also been spectacular in his efforts scoring at critical moments to stop momentum shifts or dishing a dime to a wide-open teammate.
Mitchell led the Jazz with 30 points on 8 of 22 from the field plus eight assists, two rebounds, two steals, and a block.
It was an odd game for Rudy Gobert who had a single point and two rebounds by halftime but finished the game with a double-double of 17 points and eight rebounds.
Jordan Clarkson had his best game of the series scoring 24 while Bojan Bogdanovic added 13 and Mike Conley chipped in with 11 points and seven assists.
