Both the Jazz (10-6) and the Mavericks (11-8) are coming off a loss, but each
is 7-3 in their last 10 games. The Jazz have been a mild surprise this season
at 4 games over .500 and they are playing solid on both ends of the court. On
the other side of the coin the defending champion Mavs have been a little bit
of a disappointment and it is surprising that with Dirk and the loss of defensive
stud Tyson Chandler Dallas is struggling on offense ranking 23rd in the league in
scoring while their D ranks 4th in the league in opponents’ points allowed.

These 2 teams met in Utah on January 19th with the Mavs beating the Jazz 94-
91.

In their last games the Mavs lost to the Minnesota Timberwolves 105-90 and the
Jazz lost to the lost to the Toronto Raptors 111-106 in 2 OT.

So far this season the Mavs are 12-7 ATS with an O/U record of 6-13 and the
Jazz are 9-7 ATS with an O/U record of 8-8.

This will be the last game that Dirk Nowitzki will miss, as he is still improving his
conditioning and resting his sore knee. With him out of the lineup the Mavs are 2-
1 and they will need Jason Terry (13.9 ppg) and Shaun Marion (12 ppg) to take
up the scoring slack.

Vince Carter (9.5 ppg) has missed 5 games with an ankle injury and while he did
some light shooting at practice on Tuesday he is likely out for this game.

With Carter and Dirk out that is 26 ppg the Mavs are losing so they will really
need to step up on D. Dallas played great D in their previous 2 games before
losing to Minnesota where they allowed the T-Wolves to shoot 44.2% from the
floor and 42.9% from beyond the 3-pt line.

Dallas really has to play good inside defense facing Utah’s Al Jefferson (18.3 ppg
9.4 rpg) and Paul Millsap (17.5 ppg 8.9 rpg). Jefferson sat out the Toronto game,
which is one of the main reasons the Jazz lost, but he is slated to go against
Dallas.

The Utah backcourt of Devin Harris (9.1 ppg) and Gordon Hayward (8 ppg) must
knock down some outside shots and if they cannot the Mavs will pack the lane to
keep Milsap and Jefferson from dominating the paint.

This season the Mavs are 7-3 at home and the Jazz are 2-3 on the road.

In some betting trends for this Western Conference match up the Jazz are 8-3
ATS in their last 11 games overall, 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games following a S.U.
loss, and they have an Under record of 5-1 in their last 6 road games.

The Mavs are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 home games, 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games
following a S.U. loss, and they have an Under record of 7-1 in their last 8 home
games.

The Mavs are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games against the Jazz.
