The Utah Jazz have been very impressive ever since getting healthy and they're due for a breakout performance at home. I'm not confident in the Memphis Grizzlies right now and don't think they have the offense to keep up with the balanced attack of the Jazz. I'll side with Utah at home and the reasonable line.
