Utah Jazz grind out tough victory in Memphis

Ricky Rubio continues his fantastic play

NBA: Utah Jazz at Memphis Grizzlies Justin Ford-USA TODAY Sports

On the final game of a road trip and the last day before trade deadline, you’d expect the Utah Jazz to let one slip and end the win streak. But not with this team. This Utah Jazz team has grit and a will to win that showed against a physical Memphis Grizzlies team desperate for a win.

Ricky Rubio’s brilliant play continued as he put in 29 points with 3 assists and 3 steals. Rodney Hood was a big time contributor with 18 points and a +4 for the game. With all the trade rumors swirling around Rodney, it’s nice to see him pull through and show his talent.

Rudy Gobert’s showed his defensive dominance holding the paint all night. He had one of his tougher matchups against Marc Gasol but held him to 35% shooting. Rudy is back and a big part of Utah’s win streak.
