UTA vs MEM Dream11 Prediction NBA Live Fantasy Basketball Dream11 Team, Top Picks and Tips for Utah Jazz vs Memphis Grizzlies

Share

UTA vs MEM Dream11: What a fun period it is going to be for the NBA fans once the Playoffs arrive! NBA has been rolling out the Regular Season continuously for five-plus months but the Regular Season’s flow will be curbed in less than a week. But the intensity will only increase from there.

In this game the Western Conference teams, Utah Jazz, and Memphis Grizzlies will clash. The Jazz has been struggling to compile a winning streak and is playing some of their worst basketball, reminiscent of the January window. On the other hand, the Memphis Grizzlies don’t care about any team in the league, currently on the seven-game winning streak, getting it done on both ends of the floor.

Host: Utah Jazz
Visitors: Memphis Grizzlies
Match Timing: 6 April, @ 06:30 AM
Venue: Vivint Smart Home Arena

NBA Projections, Stats & Analysis

  • The Jazz will come into the game after losing to the Warriors 107:111 despite 25+ points nights by Conley and Mitchell

The Jazz has lost 80% of the games recently and Utah has been losing the way. At this point, the team can fall out of the Playoffs and end up in the Play-in tournament. Utah hasn’t been shooting well and the defense also falls apart in key moments. One other headache has been that the team’s been blowing 20 points+ lead, something not good for the confidence of the squad moving into the Postseason.

Mitchell has carried the load while Bogdanovic has been getting it done as a scorer but he will need to step it up further. Rudy Gobert continues to be one of the best rebounders in the league while Conley and Clarkson continue to form a strong Point Guard rotation. It is stunning how many games the Jazz has lost recently and how much the team has misfired from the floor. Can they at least secure the sixth position?

The Grizzlies took care of business against the Suns 114:122 in their last game despite the team playing short-handed to the core

The Grizzlies rested Bane, Jackson, Adams, and Jones in the last game and they still defeated the league’s best Suns! That sums up the season for the Grizzlies. They have won seven in a row without their ace scorer and playmaker Morant. The special run of the team was triggered in December when they won 80%+ games and it is scary how great this team has become with its young players, a dynasty in making!

Bane has held the fort as an isolation scorer and Jones has been a stellar playmaker. Adams and Jackson form a strong frontline while wing Brooks has been having another brilliant season. The bench of the Grizzlies is perhaps deeper than any other team with Melton as a superb scorer at guard, Clarke as a tremendous slasher, Anderson as an all-around player and once Morant returns, the team will look even more loaded. The Grizzlies are a scary team!

Where to watch NBA Live Score?

Don’t you wanna see the sprightly Grizzlies counter the threat of Donovan Mitchell and co.? If you are an NBA viewer in India, this game can’t be viewed on the TV outlets MTV and VH1. On the other hand, streaming services Voot and JIO TV are not going to showcase the game. Anyway, these services at most show one game per day, and if you want to watch multiple games at the same time, buy the annual subscription of the NBA League Pass. To learn the scores, news, and stats, you can visit the official website of the NBA.
