Snapshot of Game Three:

Game three between the Utah Jazz and Memphis Grizzlies seemed to be all Jazz from the get-go, but a fourth quarter Grizzlies comeback made things interesting in the final minutes of the game. 

Ja Morant's free-throw with five-minutes left in the fourth quarter would give the Grizzlies their first lead of the night. It would be Utah though, who would go on a 14-2 run to finish things off and win back home court advantage.

Donovan Mitchell would score 10 of his 29 points in the fourth quarter and Rudy Gobert would finish with a double-double to lead the Jazz to a 121-111 victory over the Grizzlies.

The Jazz game three win, wins back home court advantage, while also putting Utah ahead in the series 2-1.
