The Dallas Mavericks and Utah Jazz meet Friday in NBA action at the Vivint Smart Home Arena.
The Dallas Mavericks need a win after losing six of their last eight games. The Dallas Mavericks are averaging 109.3 points on 45.6 percent shooting and allowing 110.2 points on 45.8 percent shooting. Luka Doncic is averaging 27.4 points and 9.7 assists while Kristaps Porzingis is averaging 19.5 points and 7.9 rebounds. Tim Hardaway Jr. is the third double-digit scorer and Josh Richardson is grabbing 2.8 rebounds. The Dallas Mavericks are shooting 33.2 percent from beyond the arc and 75.5 percent from the free throw line. The Dallas Mavericks are allowing 34.5 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 43.1 rebounds per game.
The Utah Jazz look to build on their impressive 10-game winning streak. The Utah Jazz are averaging 113.1 points on 46.4 percent shooting and allowing 105.3 points on 44.2 percent shooting. Donovan Mitchell is averaging 23.4 points and 4.9 assists while Jordan Clarkson is averaging 17.9 points and 1.9 assists. Mike Conley is the third double-digit scorer and Rudy Gobert is grabbing 14.2 rebounds. The Utah Jazz are shooting 39.7 percent from beyond the arc and 72.5 percent from the free throw line. The Utah Jazz are allowing 35 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 49.7 rebounds per game.
The Mavericks are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 road games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Jazz are 7-0 ATS in their last 7 home games and 10-1 ATS in their last 11 games overall. The over is 4-1 in Mavericks last 5 overall. The over is 14-5 in Jazz last 19 games playing on 1 days rest. The Mavericks are 1-3-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Utah and 1-3-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings.
I would assume the Dallas Mavericks turn things around eventually, but they're playing horrible basketball right now and it's quite inexcusable if you ask me. The Utah Jazz are the hottest team in the league with 10 straight wins, and they're covering numbers during this stretch as well. The Jazz also just beat the Mavericks on Wednesday. In their last five games, the Jazz are winning by an average of 14.4 points. I'm not stepping in front of that. I'll gladly lay the reasonable number with the Jazz.
