On Saturday February 24, the Dallas Mavericks arrive at the Vivint Smart Home Arena to face their host the Utah Jazz. Both teams arrive having played the night prior. Dallas played the Lakers Friday night while the Jazz hosted the Blazers. Both teams lost.
Last season the Jazz took three of the four games in the season series over Mavericks and hold a 1-0 edge this season. The Jazz hold the all-time record having bested the Mavericks in 95 of their 167 matches.
The NBA is just back from the All-Star Break and yet the Mavericks are embroiled in controversy. Sports Illustrated’s scathing article details issues with sexual harassment with former CEO Terdema Ussery.
Additionally, team reporter Earl K. Sneed remained on staff despite awareness he committed two acts of domestic violence (including one to an employee). Adding fuel to the issue was Human Resource Manager Buddy Pittman did nothing to address the issues in spite of being fully aware.
Mark Cuban also got in hot water for his “tanking” comments with the NBA issuing a $600,000 fine. That’s just the off court issues as Dallas now prepares to finish their season and head toward the lottery.
Nerlens Noel (thumb), Dorian Finney-Smith (quadricep) both remain out and aren’t expected to play anytime soon. Seth Curry had surgery and is out for remainder of season.
Donovan Mitchell broke out during the All-Star festivities and returns to lead his squad in their bid for a playoff push. Although the trade to send Rodney Hood to the Cavaliers was questioned initially the play of Royce O’Neale has since convinced pundits the choice was wise.
Moving forward how O’Neale plays once teams adjust to knowing his tendencies may determine how successful the Jazz can be. Certainly, the return of a healthy Rudy Gobert has also sparked the improvement of Utah.
The Jazz returned from the break with 24 games left to play. Of those only 10 are on the road and only 11 are against currently seeded playoff squads.
Ricky Rubio missed the last three games with a hip injury prior to the break, but played against the Blazers, so he should be good to play against the Jazz.

Free Dallas Mavericks vs. Utah Jazz NBA Prediction: Jazz -7.5
With both teams playing the night prior and the Jazz at home I’m leaning toward the Jazz keeping their win streak rolling.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick:
Dallas has so much off court adversity swirling it can’t help but affect the team. Since both squads play Friday the Jazz’ younger legs and familiarity with the thin air in Utah give them a true advantage.
