Utah Jazz DFS Notes
Donovan Mitchell notched 29 points, two rebounds, five assists, a steal, two triples and two turnovers in a 121-111 win on Saturday. Make that 2-0 in this series when Donovan Mitchell is in the lineup, and while the game ended up being close in the end, the Jazz dominated on both ends for the majority of the night. He was just 2-of-10 triples tonight, but we’ll cut him some slack since this is just his second game back since his ankle injury that held him out for the last part of the regular season. The Griz will look to tie the series in Game 4 on Monday, while Mitchell and the Jazz will look to take a 3-1 lead and head back to Utah. Bojan Bogdanovic had 15 points with six rebounds, and Rudy Gobert did Gobert-like things with a 15/14 double-double with four blocks.
Memphis Grizzlies DFS Notes
Ja Morant scored a team-high 28 points to go with three rebounds and seven dimes in a Game 3 loss to the Jazz on Saturday. Ja had some highlight worthy plays including a 360 dunk to give the Grizzlies some life when they were getting dominated early in the game, but it wasn't enough to come out with a win. He and Dillon Brooks finally got some help from reserve Grayson Allen (17 points and five triples), but the Jazz are too stacked for their liking. For what it’s worth, this series is far more competitive than the No. 1/No. 8 matchup in the East, and if the Grizzlies can snag one home win on Monday, they may actually have a shot against the best regular-season team in the NBA.
