UTA vs MEM Dream11: Memphis Grizzlies visit the Salt Lake City as they play Utah Jazz in the Western Conference regular-season matchup at Vivint Smart Home Arena, on Sunday morning (IST). With both the teams coming into this game losing games, one team will certainly end its skid here. But which team is likely to do?
Certainly, you have to make the Jazz favourites here, despite them coming here with three straight defeats. One big reason is that they are at home, where they have lost 2 games out of 10 this season. That's an impressive return, considering they are 12-10 on the season. So Jazz struggles away from home. but that's the problem for another day. The Jazz are 4-6 in the last 10 games.
While Memphis' own record this season, whether home or away, hardly evoke any confidence in them. They are 6-15 on the season and sit 3rd from bottom in the Western Conference. They are 2-8 in the last 10 games.
This will be the 91st meeting between these two teams with Utah Jazz holding an advantage in the head-to-head encounters over Memphis Grizzlies. Both the teams both a game apiece last two seasons.
