UTA vs MEM Dream11: In this game, two teams from the Western conferences will fight it out against each other. Here, the Utah Jazz will fight it out versus the Memphis Grizzlies in an inter-conference affair. Utah Jazz has won a ton of games yet again and has begun the season on a resounding note while the Grizzlies are not up-to-the-par, losing half of their games so far.
The Jazz has done a superb job with the same core they had last season. Remember this team finished with the best record in the league last season and is likely to finish among the top four teams in the West. On the other hand, the Grizzlies are struggling massively. The team lost to 35+ points versus the Timberwolves in the last game and Memphis looks even worse at times than the record suggests.
Host: Utah Jazz
VisiMEMs: Memphis Grizzlies
Match Timing: 23 November, @ 07:30 AM
Venue: Vivint Smart Home Arena
Jazz: They are built for success
Jazz retained all their main players who enabled the superb record last season. With the backcourt of Mitchell and Conley, you get both superb defense and offense. Rudy Gobert provides superb defense in the middle and can also get big on points and boards. With shooters like Bogdanovic and Clarkson, and a hustle defender in Royce O’Neale, the Jazz regulars have been able to become a top five squad in terms of various offensive and defensive metrics.
Grizzlies: Not playing well
Memphis has struggled recently to close in on wins. What is the team’s biggest problem? Clearly their defense, where the team allows 115-125 points constantly and can’t hold down the barrage of oppositions. Memphis has played terrible defense all season long and once their offense fails, they stand no chance in the game. The team is heavily dependent upon Ja Morant and all off a sudden, the move to ship off Jonas Valanciunas has hurt them on both ends of the floor.
