Utah has not been a good road team this season as the club sports a 2-7 record on the highway. What has been lacking big time for the Utah Jazz team on the road has been the play of their defense. The team allows over 104 points and 47 ½% shooting to their opponents on the road. Utah has been poor defending the three point shot on the road as teams have shot over 39% in their nine road contests. The team has struggled with five losses in their past five games. They have allowed their opponents 47% shooting or greater in their past three games. Utah faces an extremely tough stretch as they begin a three game in three night schedule tonight with all three contests coming on the road.

Memphis will be playing their fourth game of this six game home stand. They are freshened for this game as they have a day of rest and have faced no back to back situations in their past three games. They have won two straight heading into tonight’s game and take note they had a day of rest between games. Memphis was mired in a very difficult scheduling spot for the latter half of January and into early February and simply was a team running on fumes due to their lack of quality depth. This Grizzlies team has shown its best form with good rest. The Grizzlies seems poised tonight in a good spot. They shoot the ball from three much better than Utah as the Jazz is ranked 27th in all of basketball with 29.3% average from beyond the arc.
