Utah Jazz vs. Dallas Mavericks Prediction

The Jazz looked dead late, but a pair of missed free throws from Dwight Powell gave the Jazz a chance to take the lead with under ten seconds. The Jazz ran a good play that ended with a Rudy Gobert dunk that ultimately won the game after the Mavericks missed a game-winning three. The Mavericks returned Luka Doncic for that game four, and he looked like he did all season which was great. Doncic logged thirty-four minutes, scoring thirty points in those thirty-four minutes. Doncic being fully healthy makes this Mavs team extremely tough to match up with due to their great defense and shooting all around the court. Jalen Brunson will have a well-earned payday soon as he has stepped up for the Mavs all season long. The Jazz will look to steal a game here tonight in Dallas and have a chance to win the series in Utah. The Jazz have had issues in the postseason the last couple of years after looking like title contenders during the regular season. Donavan Mitchell has been the star all season long and will need to step up in a big way if the Jazz want to steal one on the road tonight. The Jazz enter play as a three-point road dog. 

I am backing the road dog tonight and fading the world. I believe in momentum, and the Jazz have a lot of that right now. They had no business winning that game on Saturday, but that win gave them l new life, and they finally won a close game an issue that they had all season long. That’s a tough loss to come back from on the other side of things for the Mavs, who looked like they would be playing a home game tonight to win the series. The pressure is all on Dallas here tonight, while the Jazz should be playing more loosely tonight. I think the Jazz are the better team overall and that this line is an indication of the Jazz tonight. Luka is back, and the Mavs have been a better team all series, and they are only -3? I think this is a trap line for the Mavs tonight and a massive public fade. Let’s cash another ticket tonight!
