Dirk doin' what Dirk do.
WHAT: Dallas could still theoretically miss the playoffs, so.
WHERE: EnergySolutions Arena, Salt Lake City, Utah
WHEN: 8 p.m. CT
HOW: Fox Sports Southwest, NBA League Pass, 103.3 FM ESPN radio. (HAH, who listens to radio anymore, RIGHT GUYS?!)
THE STORY: The Mavericks probably won't miss the playoffs. But since they still haven't clinched a spot yet, that's the only story national outlets are really going to care about. The Jazz are two games back in the loss column and one game back in the win column of the eighth-place Houston Rockets. So they probably care about this game. Dirk Nowitkzi has been real good against Utah in two games this year, shooting 57 percent and averaging a little over 26 points per game. Jazz fans also hate him and boo him whenever he touches the ball. Which is funny because Dirk is known as one of the most beloved and respected players league-wide. Oh and this is the second night of a back-to-back for Dallas, so they'll probably lose. Except they'll probably win.
