Game Thread: Dallas Mavericks vs Utah Jazz

The Mavericks face Utah for the ninth place in the West as the struggle to stay alive in the playoff picture.

Russ Isabella-USA TODAY Sports

WHO: Utah Jazz

WHAT: If the Mavs were to still make the playoffs, they must gain ground on the Jazz. Here's a perfect opportunity.

WHERE: American Airlines Center, Dallas, TX

WHEN: 6:30 p.m. CST


THE STORY: With a win, the Mavericks would move to ninth place in the West. There is still work to be done, as the Mavericks trail the Lakers for the 8th seed by 2 1/2 games. However, after beating Boston on Friday, it's safe to say they're on the right track. Utah has already lost eleven of its last fourteen, including nine straight on the road.
