For the third time in the last four games, the Jazz will meet the Grizzlies.
Utah swept a home back-to-back on Friday and Saturday. The Grizzlies covered the first and the Jazz covered the second.
That sweep in Utah was part of a larger six-game winning streak that also includes wins over the Raptors, Bulls, Nets, and Cavs.
The win over the Cavaliers on Monday was Utah’s finest defensive effort of the season. Cleveland’s 75 points was the lowest total the Jazz has held an opponent to this season. It came a point shy of winning by 40.
Not one player on Utah had even a 20-point game but 14 different players scored, 10 of them made at least one three-pointer.
Utah’s lead in the Western Conference stands at 3.5 games and its schedule remains light with home games against Chicago and Orlando immediately after this one.
Just like last season, the Grizzlies are clawing at a chance to get into the playoffs.
Memphis is a game back of the Spurs, who host the Kings on Wednesday. The Grizzlies took care of Houston, 120–110, on Monday thanks to 30 and 15 from Jonas Valanciunas and a combined 40 points off the bench from the combination of De’Anthony Melton and Desmond Bane.
Grayson Allen left that game with a hip injury. Justise Winslow missed it completely with a thigh problem.
Winslow has missed four games, distributed fairly evenly, since returning from injury in late February but he’ll miss Wednesday’s game too. Allen has been listed as questionable.

Free Utah Jazz vs. Memphis Grizzlies NBA Prediction: under.
Both games in Utah got over 230 but not by much.
This one will finish on the other side of the number. Memphis doesn’t have wiggle room and it will have to find a way to keep up with the Jazz’s well-oiled offensive machine.
That means guys like Melton and Bane will have to make outside shots. Thing is, the Jazz specialize in making three-point shots difficult for the opponent.
Coming off of that sterling defensive effort against the Cavs, Utah will play another good game on the defensive end and keep this game down in the 100s or 110s.
