Through 3 Quarters

Down one at the end of last quarter, the Dallas Mavericks have now snagged the lead. After three quarters it’s looking more and more like their high-powered offense is just too much for the Utah Jazz as the Mavericks lead 90-79.

Dallas has been led by point guard Luka Doncic, who so far has posted a double-double on 32 points and ten boards along with four assists. A double-double would be Doncic’s third in a row.

Small forward Rudy Gay (14 points) and point guard Mike Conley (12 points) have been the top scorers for Utah. Rudy Gay does need to be careful, however, as he is in foul trouble with four.

Utah has lost 90% of the time when they were down heading into the fourth quarter this year, so this one seems just about wrapped up

Current Records: Utah 45-29; Dallas 45-29

What to Know

The Utah Jazz are on the road again Sunday and play against the Dallas Mavericks at 7:30 p.m. ET March 27 at American Airlines Center. Utah will be seeking to avenge the 111-103 loss they suffered the last time these two teams played March 7th.

The Jazz were within striking distance but couldn’t close the gap this past Friday as they fell 107-101 to the Charlotte Hornets. The top scorer for Utah was shooting guard Donovan Mitchell (26 points).

Meanwhile, Dallas suffered a grim 116-95 defeat to the Minnesota Timberwolves this past Friday. Dallas was down 89-67 at the end of the third quarter, which was just too much to recover from. One thing holding Dallas back was the mediocre play of small forward Dorian Finney-Smith, who did not have his best game: he played for 32 minutes but put up just seven points on 3-for-11 shooting.

Barring any buzzer beaters, the Jazz are expected to win a tight contest. Those sticking with them against the spread have guts, to put it politely, as the squad has let down bettors in their past three games.

With the two teams each stumbling in off of a loss, both will be hungry for the win. Check back to see which squad is able to work their way into the win column.
