Besides a slip up against the Clippers, the Mavericks have now won five of their last six games. Most recently, they beat the Portland Trail Blazers by a score of 133-125. The Mavericks continue to sit in 5th place in the Western Conference. They are now two games behind the Nuggets for one of the seeds that will give them home court advantage.
Dallas remains as one of the best scoring team in the NBA. They have the 3rd best scoring offense and are averaging 116.8 points per game. Just over their last five games, they are averaging 122.2 points per game, so their offense continues to light it up. Note that Kristaps Porzingis is now back and healthy and will provide a huge presence in the low post
The bad news for the Mavericks is Dwight Powell is out for the season after rupturing his achilles in the game against the Clippers. Powell was averaging 9.4 points per game and was really starting to heat up before going down.
Dallas has an above average defense this season, allowing 109.7 points per game. The one concern is they allowed 125 points in their last game and will need to tighten things against a very good Jazz team.
Since their overtime loss to the Pelicans, the Jazz have won three games in a row. They have also now won nine of their last ten. As it stands, the Jazz are the number two seed in the Western Conference and trail the Lakers by 4.5 games.
Utah’s offense is about as average as it can be, ranking 16th in the NBA in scoring. They average 111.2 points per game. The Jazz still rank in the top 5 in shooting, averaging 47.5% from the field. They are also the best team in the league in three-point shooting, averaging 38.9%.
Leading the scoring is Donovan Mitchell. This is not really a surprise as he averages 24.7 points per game. Bojan Bogdanovic is averaging 21.1 points per game and Jordan Clarkson is averaging 14.4 points per game. Rudy Gobert also averages 15.6 points per game, but he also averages 14.5 rebounds per game. Clearly the Jazz have plenty of scoring options to counter Luka Doncic and the Mavericks.
Defensively, the Jazz are a top 5 team, allowing 105.8 points per game. During their three-game winning streak, they are allowing just 95 points per game and are really locked in right now. Teams are shooting 44.4% against them and 33.9% from long range. Furthermore, they are the 4th best team in limiting rebounds, allowing just 43 per game.

Free Dallas Mavericks vs. Utah Jazz NBA Prediction:
Both of these teams are extremely good, but Utah being at home is where I give the Jazz the edge. I also look for a high scoring game despite the recent success of the Utah defense. The Mavericks are going to be able to score plenty, which is what will push the total over.
