Season HistoryIn the 2 game season series these teams split with the road team winning each matchup. Also these two teams conducted one of the blockbuster trades of the season with each other when the Jazz sent Al Jefferson and pieces to Memphis for Mike Conley, Luke Ridnour, and Mo Speights. Memphis is bringing two award winners into this series as Terrance Owens has won the ROY and Josh Smith has won DPOY while the Jazz don't even have a member of the All NBA teams. This is going to be an interesting series to watch where home court is vital. Both these teams are known for their extremely loud crowds and it should be a pleasure to see these two square off. Matchup to WatchPaul Millsap vs Josh SmithMillsap is the heart and soul of this Jazz team. When he gets it going this team is hard to stop. However, Josh Smith is someone who is known to have given him fits. Both are undersized 4's but Josh Smith is the superior leaper and that has been what has caused Millsap trouble due to his flat jumper. If Millsap can use some of his post moves he can score the ball on Smith, but he is going to need help from his outside shooters to prevent frequent double teams. For Smith a nice faceup game will do wonders for him as Millsap is not the quickest going side to side. X-FactorIf the Rookie of the Year is ever considered an X-Factor, its right here. The man they call TO has given Utah fits in the past and we expect him to do it again here. The young man from Texas A&M averaged 15 points and 6 assists a game this year and is the main reason why Mike Conley is now in a Jazz uniform. If he can slice through the Jazz defense it opens up the court for everyone else on his team. We think this kid could go off and be leave the Jazz frustrated and coach Ty Corbin struggling to make adjustments. PredictionWhen the series is all said and done, it will ultimately be the first team to win on the road who will win the series. That team will be Memphis in Game 6. Memphis 4 games to 2.
