The Spanish center Santi Aldama this time did not have minutes with the Grizzlies although he enjoyed the victory from the bench.

The scoring inspiration of Croatian forward Bojan Bogdanovic allowed him to finish with 24 points, including seven triples, his best mark of the season, and led the attack of the Jazz, who took advantage of two consecutive baskets that he scored from outside the perimeter in the last two minutes. that put the Utah team in front of the scoreboard.

But then the figure of Jackson Jr. would emerge with the baskets that made the difference in the final stretch of the game. Guard Donovan Mitchell, who scored 18 points on 5 of 20 shots, missed when the horn sounded.

Gobert finished with a double-double of 23 points and 13 rebounds, while point guard Mike Conley, a former Grizzlies player, had 19 points and eight assists for the Utah team.

The Jazz and Grizzlies met for the first time since Utah eliminated Memphis 4-1 in the first round of the playoffs last season.
