Knicks vs Hawks Preview

The Utah Jazz (52-20) finished the regular season with the best record in the NBA, being just one of two teams to finish above the 50-win mark during the condensed 72-game season.

The Jazz patiently awaiting the winner of the play-in game between the Memphis Grizzlies and Golden State Warriors. It was a unique situation as they prepared for the matchup.

“We’ve tried to set it up in a way where we’ve not only focused on our potential opponent, and, we’ve got to a pivotal point where we feel like we can move quickly when we find out who that is,” Jazz coach Quin Snyder said. “The fact that there’s two teams now reduces it where you can do more on each team and splitting some of that work. … That also requires planning and decision-making. So you kind of go broad and then you eventually narrow it in.”

Ja Morant stepped up in a big way during the play-in against the favored Warriors and Steph Curry, dropping 35 points, including some clutch buckets down the stretch.

“What a moment in time for the Grizzlies. Took a lot out of us all season long. It’s just a proud moment,” coach Taylor Jenkins said. “We gave it all we had to move on and I know we have more left. What a heck of a game. It took overtime against a heck of a ball club. There were so many things that don’t show up in the boxscore. We have to keep building, keep fighting.”

The Grizzlies aren’t just happy to be in the postseason. Now they want to make some noise.

“I know it’s a big accomplishment for all of us, but me and Dillon [Brooks] know the job’s not finished,” Morant said. “We’re not trying to be done making it to the playoffs. We have to lock back in to playing Utah who has the best record in the league.”

The Jazz swept the three-game regular-season series against the Grizzlies, the most recent victory coming on March 31.

The Jazz are -625 to win the series and are 8.5-point favorites to win Game 1 at home.
