The Utah Jazz (6-11) conclude their regular season series against the Memphis Grizzlies tonight, in Memphis, at 6 PM MST. The game is televised on KJZZ and broadcast on the radio stations 97.5 FM/ 1280 AM The Zone. According to @Tjonesonthenba, Lauri Markkanen will miss the next two games because of a left hamstring sprain. Jordan Clarkson (thigh contusion) and Kelly Olynyk (shoulder sprain) are questionable for tonight. Kris Dunn is also out tonight for personal reasons.

During this two-game winning streak, the entire Jazz team has been bolstered-up by following Hardy’s public challenge; they are passing more (27 APG) and playing harder on defense (106 Opponent PPG). Walker Kessler’s return and Omer Yurtseven and Simone Fontecchio’s pleasantly surprising, good play have been key factors for these recent Jazz wins. The Utah Jazz may be only 1-7 on the road, but the Grizzlies are not fierce competition.

The Memphis Grizzlies (3-13, lost the past three games by more than 20 points) seem to be lottery-bound. They play tonight without Ja Morant, Steven Adams, Brandon Clarke, Marcus Smart, Luke Kennard, Xavier Tillman, and Jake LaRavia. To show how poorly the Grizzlies are doing, you can currently buy tickets for the game tonight for 2 dollars (less than a McChicken).
