WHO: Dallas Mavericks at Utah Jazz

WHAT: A winnable gam......lol this is the Mavs.

WHERE: EnergySolutions Arena, Salt Lake City, Utah

WHEN: 8:00 p.m. CDT

HOW: TXA21

THE STORY: As of this writing, the Mavs are in sole possession of seventh place in the West. None of the other teams in the chase are in action tonight, so they can pick up a little ground if they can beat the Jazz, and scoreboard watch on Wednesday night. Obviously the Jazz are chasing a good lottery pick, so that's certainly helpful, but we all know the Mavs have a frustrating tendency to play down to their competition. This can be a win, should be a win, needs to be a win, would not surprise me if it wasn't. Such is life as a Mavs fan in 2013-14.

Check out the game previews and the music video below, and goooooooooooooo Mavs!
