MEMPHIS, Tenn. – Bojan Bogdanovic had an excellent game and a spectacular fourth quarter that lifted the Utah Jazz to a 103-94 win over the Memphis Grizzlies. The victory gave the Jazz their first win on a five-game road trip.

Bogdanovic scored 16 points in the final quarter of the game at FedEx Forum between the Jazz and Grizzlies on Friday, November 29.
