The formula is frighteningly simple for the Jazz on Wednesday night. They need to win this game and hope that the Los Angeles Lakers end up losing later on in the evening to get into the second season. Of course, it probably isn’t going to make much of a difference, as the stay in the playoffs will likely be short, knowing that the Oklahoma City Thunder are probably going to slaughter whatever team they end up taking on in the first round of the second season. That being said, the Grizzlies have a lot on the line here as well. They have a chance to end up hosting the opening games of the playoffs this weekend with a win and some help as well. The Grizz are playing great ball right now, and they are coming off of a game against the Dallas Mavericks in the Lone Star State in which they ended up with a lot of contributions from their bench. As it is, Memphis is playing outstanding defense, and it is most certainly going to be a big factor in this game. The Jazz just don’t have the guards to come on the road and win this game in the clutch. There is a reason that two of these three games this season have been covered by the Grizzlies. The lone exception was a game a month ago in Salt Lake City. There’s just a huge difference between playing at home and going on the road in what will feel like a playoff game right at the end of the regular season. Lay the points with the hosts.
Jazz @ Grizzlies Pick: Memphis Grizzlies -5
