We’ve got two more NBA Playoffs games to enjoy on this beautiful Memorial Day.

The Jazz brought Mike Conley in to help put them over the top as a championship contender. The former Grizzlies superstar is now embracing his “villain” role in his NBA Playoffs return to the Grind House. Conley rained down seven 3-pointers as part of a 27-point, eight-assist, six-rebound showing in Game 3 on Friday night. With the win, the Jazz successfully took back control of home-court advantage and the series as a whole. In just his second game back from injury, Donovan Mitchell went off once again, finishing with 29 points. Four other Utah players finished in double figures scoring. Even on the road, the Jazz wasted little time in getting out to a double-digit lead at the end of the first quarter.
The Grizzlies backcourt tandem of Ja Morant and Dillon Brooks showed out once again in Friday’s Game 3. Morant finished with 28 points and seven assists while Brooks supplied 27. Unfortunately, it wasn’t enough to put the Grizzlies over the top for a home win. Memphis will now look to salvage Game 4 on their home floor as NBA betting underdogs before the series shifts back to Utah. Grayson Allen was sharp from long range in Game 3 and the Grizz would certainly love a similar performance tonight. Jonas Valanciunas and Kyle Anderson each posted a double-double in Game 3, but the former’s numbers in this series haven’t quite been what we’ve grown used to over the course of the full season.
