What you need to know about the Jazz

Utah bounced back from a loss to Golden State with a 121-115 win over Memphis in overtime on Tuesday night. The Jazz blew a 21-point lead in the loss to the Warriors, which was their sixth consecutive road loss. They held Memphis without a made shot in the first 4.5 minutes of overtime on Tuesday, clinching a playoff spot in the process. 

The Jazz are in fifth place in the Western Conference standings, but they are only a half-game ahead of Denver. Shooting guard Donovan Mitchell leads Utah with 26.0 points and 5.3 assists per game, while Rudy Gobert is adding 15.4 points and 14.8 rebounds. The Jazz have been outstanding at home, winning 13 of their last 14 games. 

What you need to know about the Thunder

Oklahoma City played its final home game of the season on Tuesday, picking up a 98-94 win over Portland. The Thunder have now won consecutive games for the first time since Feb. 4, as they pulled off a huge upset against Phoenix on Sunday. They are eliminated from playoff contention, but they have covered the spread in nine of their last 11 games. 

The Thunder are dealing with more injuries than any team in the NBA, as their top five scorers are all sidelined. Fifth-leading scorer Tre Mann is the only one that has not been ruled out for the remainder of the season, as he is questionable for Wednesday night’s game. Oklahoma City has covered the spread at a 12-3 clip in its last 15 games against Utah.
