On Wednesday February 7, the Utah Jazz arrives at the FedExForum to face the host Memphis Grizzlies. Entering the game the Jazz are one of the two hottest squads (Denver) in the NBA.
Utah has won six consecutive with the most recent vs. the Pelicans. Conversely, the Grizzlies are trying to battle and keep games close, but simply don’t have enough healthy bodies or compatible stars to compete. Memphis play Atlanta Tuesday so could extend their losing streak to four.
Last season, the Grizzlies won three of the four games vs. the Jazz. This is the first meeting between the teams this season.
The Jazz hold the all-time record having bested the Grizzlies in 52 of their 81 matches.
Entering the week the Jazz were on the longest win streak of the Association with six consecutive victories. More impressively, was how the Jazz won and who they beat.
Four of the victories came on the road and three were against playoff seeds. Although the win in Toronto came down to the wire the wins versus the Warriors (129-99) and Spurs (120-111) were significant.
Since then the Jazz beat the Pelicans as well the Pelicans.
Rookie Donovan Mitchell isn’t just making a solid case for Rookie of the Year, he’s quickly becoming the leader of this Jazz squad. In a rarity Mitchell had just 2 points and 3 assists in the last game playing in just 19 minutes.
Then again, with Rodney Hood lighting it up (30 points, 3 assists, 3 rebounds) it offered Quin Snyder the option to rest the rookie and showcase a potential trade asset.
With the Clippers choosing to rebuild and the Pelicans loss of DeMarcus Cousins it will be interesting to see what Utah decides to do prior to the trade deadline Thursday.
Both Rodney Hood and Derrick Favors are rumored to be assets the Jazz would consider moving.
All season the Jazz have been hampered by injury, but entering this match only Dante Exum (shoulder) and Thabo Sefolosha (knee) are out with both being lost for the season.
The Grizzlies return home following a four game road trip in which (they failed to get a victory/won just once and that win came in Atlanta).
Despite losing to three playoff squads in three of the road games only the Raptors won convincingly whereas the Pacers (4 points) and Pistons (2 points) had to capture the win in clutch time.
It’s inconvenient timing for the Grizzlies to face the Jazz with them, rolling and the Grizz on a back to back. One positive for Memphis this season has been the gritty performance of Dillon Brooks who fits the grit and grind identity with a new age twist.
Moving forward it will be interesting to see if Memphis is active at tomorrow’s deadline.
They have been holding out Tyreke Evans as the team shops him to ensure he stays healthy.

Free Utah Jazz vs. Memphis Grizzlies NBA Prediction: Jazz -2.5
Given how the Jazz are playing this should be an easy win. That said, with the Jazz rolling and Grizz sputtering plus playing on a back to back, Utah need to be careful not to let this be a trap game.
