Game Four Recap:

The Utah Jazz were able to finish with two wins in Memphis as they head back to Salt Lake City with a 3-1 series lead. The Jazz looked strong physically and especially mentally in their two wins in Tennessee, countering each Grizzly run, and never leaving any doubt that they were the better squad on the floor.

During game four, Donovan Mitchell led the way with 30-points and 8-assists. Key performances from Rudy Gobert, Bojan Bogdanovic and Mike Conley, combined with solid bench play from Jordan Clarkson and Derrick Favors were also crucial to the Jazz successes. 

One of the biggest highlights of the game came as the final seconds were ticking down in the third quarter. Mike Conley drove into the paint, pulling Jaren Jackson away from Rudy Gobert. Conley's quick pass to a wide open Gobert led to a ferocious dunk over Jackson, swinging momentum heavily in Utah's favor. 

Utah would go on to win game four 120-113. It was announced that game five will be played in Salt Lake City at 7:30pm MST on Wednesday June 2. The Jazz can finish out the series with a win on their home floor in game five.
