*Stats from Regular Season*
Ja’s scoring and playmaking abilities often highlight the Grizzlies offense and he is one of the building blocks of the team. The super talented PG has made a name for himself in the league and is now leading his team to multiple victories in must-win games, while now entering the series against Jazz, he has shown that he can shoot them down. He scored 26 points in Game 1, making him one of the candidates for the Super-Player title in the Dream11 NBA scenario.
Gobert’s defense will be crucial but his main assignment is Valanciunas who possesses an array of moves and can be a difficult player to guard. Jazz will need more defense, scoring, and rebounding from the big man if they have to stave off their opponents. He registered 11 points, 15 rebounds, and 3 blocks in the first game.
Donovan has been reported to be disgruntled after being rested for the first game. He is most likely to get the go-ahead in Game 2 but after missing so many games, his rhythm can be affected. If he plays as he did in the regular season then the Grizzlies will need to watch out.
Jonas has the ability to score inside, shoot from mid-range, rebound the ball, and defend the paint. He is one of the premier offensive big men and can give even Gobert a ton of trouble through his skills. Jonas had 15 points and 12 rebounds in the win against the Jazz.
Bojan Bogdanovic: PPG: 17.0 RPG: 3.9 TPG: 1.8 PFP: 36
Jazz’s struggles can’t be pinned on Bojan who has been racking up massive scoring nights as the first option in the starting lineup. He continued the trend against the Grizzlies, racking up 29 points.
Dillon Brooks: PPG: 17.2 SPG: 1.2 TPG: 1.8 PFP: 34
Brooks has been one of the major reasons why the Grizzlies are doing so well in the postseason. His shooting has picked apart defenses three different times now and Brooks is now averaging 23 PPG since the postseason began.
Jordan Clarkson: PPG: 18.4 RPG: 4.0 TPG: 1.7 PFP: 30
The guard is well-adept at breaking down the defense with his dribbling, shooting, and driving abilities. He exemplifies the depth Jazz has at the guard position and is instant offense. He scored 14 points in Game 1.
Mike Conley: PPG: 16.0 APG: 6.0 RPG: 3.5 SPG: 1.4 TPG: 1.9 PFP: 27
