After missing Game 1 with an ankle injury, Mitchell stormed back to score 54 points in 55 minutes over the next two games combined. Now that he’s back in the swing of things, look for him to have another big scoring night, especially if his playing time continues to increase.

Ja Morant, Memphis Grizzlies vs. Utah Jazz

Over 25.5 Points (-105)

Morant has stepped up as the Grizzlies’ leading scorer in this series, averaging 33.7 points per game and netting at least 26 points in all three games. The 21-year-old also leads Memphis in minutes, field-goal attempts, and usage rate, so he should continue to be a driving force of the offense in Game 4. Utah hasn’t figured out how to stop him yet, giving him a strong chance to hit the over again tonight.

Mike Conley Jr., Utah Jazz at Memphis Grizzlies

Over 25.5 Points + Assists (-115)

Conley has been Utah’s best player in this series, averaging 23.0 points and 11.3 assists per game as the team’s top facilitator and scoring option. He also leads the Jazz in total minutes, field-goal attempts, points, and assists. After notching at least 33 combined points and assists in all three contests, he could easily blow past the over again in Game 4.
