SALT LAKE CITY – Forward Bojan Bogdanović knocked down two quick three-pointers during an early 13-0 Jazz run in Utah’s game against the Memphis Grizzlies.

The Jazz hosted the Grizzlies at Vivint Arena on Tuesday, April 5.

After Memphis opened the contest with a 3-0 lead in the first minute of game time, Bogdanović helped the Jazz respond with a 13-0 burst over the next three minutes of action.

Bogdanović’s first triple game at the 10:47 mark and helped Utah tie the game at 3-3.

With 9:35 remaining in the quarter, the Croatian buried his second three to give the Jazz a 9-3 lead.

This season, Bogdanović is averaging 18.0 points per game on 45.6 percent shooting, including 38.7 percent from beyond the arc.

Grizzlies vs. Jazz

The Jazz will look to earn their first win of the season over the Grizzlies when the two teams meet on Tuesday.

The Jazz beat the Grizzlies in the opening round of the playoffs last season 4-1, but have gone winless in two meetings this season.

The two teams have headed in different directions since last year’s postseason with the Jazz dipping to the sixth seed in the Western Conference while Memphis has already locked up the second seed.

Jazz Playing Worst Basketball Of The Season

The Jazz goal throughout the year has been to be playing their best basketball as they enter the playoffs, but recently it’s been anything but easy.

After blowing a 21 point lead against the Golden State Warriors on Saturday the Jazz have lost six of their last seven games, including six straight on the road.

Amid the losses, the relationship between Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert has come under a microscope with both players seeming to offer criticism of one another during media availabilities before and after games.

With less than one week left in the regular season, the Jazz need any combination of two wins over their four final games, or two Minnesota Timberwolves losses in their three final outings to avoid the postseason play-in tournament.

Grizzlies Playing Best Basketball In The West

While the Jazz season has submarined ahead of the playoffs, the Grizzlies are playing the best basketball of any team in the West.

Memphis has won 11 of their last 12 outings, including seven straight without the help of All-Star Ja Morant.

Morant has missed the stretch after tweaking his knee in late March and is expected to return to the lineup before the playoffs.

The All-Star guard did go through practice with the Grizzlies on Monday.

Utah’s game against Memphis is broadcast on AT&T SportsNet, NBA League Pass, and The Zone Sports Network.
