Once again Utah Jazz will have to fight hard for victory until the last, once again capturing the first seed game in times of crisis. The Jazz have a 3-1 lead, 120-113, in the first round series against Memphis Grizzlies. Mike Conley drowned his former teammate.

Memphis Chryslice (8) – Utah Jazz (1) 113: 120 (boxcore), Series: 1-3

The former Chrysler and today’s Jazz Guard had only 11 points and 7 assists, but he was with some important plays during the crisis and destroyed all hope for Chryslys’ comeback. The guests’ top scorer was Donovan Mitchell, who finished the game with 30 points and 8 assists. Rudy Cobbett (17 and 8 rebounds) and Jordan Clarkson (24) are also known to be convincing at times.

However, for the entire 48 minutes, the first seed of the Western Conference was still germinating. Despite the obvious advantages of filming (Jazz: 17/34 trio, Memphis: 10/35), Utah was never able to split decisively. Their own offense ran cold or Memphis faced a strong fight.

Chryslice kept coming back in the fourth quarter with their attacks (64:40 points in the paint) in the back zone. D’Anthony Melton played a major role in this, scoring all 15 of his points in the final. Ja Morand had 23 points and 12 assists (but 8/21 FG and 1/7 trio) and became the first Grizzly to have 20 points / 10 assists in the playoffs.

Dillon Brooks (21), Johnson Jackson Jr. (21) and Jonas Valencianas (14 and 12 rebounds) both scored double digits, but as in Game 3, the home side were out of the air during the crisis. Memphis are now battling it out in the first round on Thursday night.
