Keyonte George H/L 15.5 Points

Keyonte George and the Jazz find themselves as 4.5-point road underdogs against the depleted Memphis Grizzlies, who currently hold a 3-13 record and occupy the 14th spot in the Western Conference. This reflects the challenging situation the Jazz are facing. Pick’Em Pro projects George for just 14.2 points and a 58% win rate when opting for a score lower than 15.5.

Despite the Jazz’s struggles, George has been performing exceptionally well recently, averaging 13.5 points per game over his last five outings. It’s worth noting that his season average is much lower at just 9.3 points. The absence of both Lauri Markkanen and Jordan Clarkson in recent games has resulted in an increased usage rate for George. However, with Clarkson expected to return tonight, the dynamics might shift. Alongside Clarkson, George has been averaging 9.1 points per game in 25.1 minutes. It’s important to know that Memphis allows the eighth-fewest points to guards.

Derrick Rose H/L 3 Assists

Derrick Rose is poised for a favorable matchup tonight against the Utah Jazz, a team allowing 14.3 assists to guards and ranking 27th in opponent assists per game. The former MVP has embraced a valuable bench role with the Grizzlies as they eagerly await Ja Morant‘s return from suspension. Rose is currently averaging 2.4 assists per game in just 17.8 minutes, with an impressive 6.8 potential assists over his last four games.

In a pace-up scenario as a home favorite, Rose is expected to record four assists tonight, even if his playing time is limited to just 20 minutes. According to Pick’Em Pro, Rose is projected for 4.1 assists, carrying a 61% win rate on higher than three assists.
