Joe Ingles scored 12 of his 25 points in the fourth quarter, and the Utah Jazz kept the Memphis Grizzlies winless in the NBA bubble with a 124-115 victory Wednesday. Mike Conley had 23 points and seven assists against his former team for the Jazz (43-25), who improved to 2-2 in the seeding round and nudged ahead of Houston (42-25) for the fourth spot in the Western Conference standings. ''We just moved that ball, and when we rotate it from corner to corner, I know it's hard to defend,'' Conley said.
The Memphis Grizzlies took on the Utah Jazz in the Grizzlies fourth seeding game, seeking their first win within the bubble. Coming off another disappointing loss to the New Orleans Pelicans and the unfortunate news of Jaren Jackson Jr.’s season-ending injury, the Grizzlies needed something to go their way. The starters against the Jazz were Ja Morant, Jonas Valanciunas, Dillon Brooks, Kyle Anderson, and Brandon Clarke.
