Grizzlies' Early Shooting Woes Make Them a Risky Bet

The Utah Jazz are fully healthy and are firing on all cylinders as a result. With star small forward Gordon Hayward back in the fold, the Jazz are 4-1 SU in their last five games while holding opponents to an average of 92.4 points. Next up on the docket is a home tilt with the Memphis Grizzlies on Monday.

Shark Bites
  • The Grizzlies are 4-12 SU in their last 16 games on the road against the Jazz.
  • The Jazz are 10-1 SU in their last 11 games at home against teams with losing records.
  • The total has gone OVER in five of the Jazz' last six games.

Memphis enters the contest ranking 27th in scoring (97 points per game) and 29th in shooting (41.7 percent from the field). The Grizz put up a measly 39 points in the first half against Milwaukee on Saturday before eventually losing 106-96.

The Grizzlies’ frontcourt duo of Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph has terrorized opponents for years, but Utah’s monster combination of Derrick Favors and Rudy Gobert is clearly better in 2016.

Favors, who is listed as questionable after leaving Saturday’s game against the Grizzlies with knee pain, had his double-digit scoring streak end at four games in the last outing. Gobert has two straight double-doubles and five for the season, tied for seventh in the Association.
