Dallas Mavericks will be meeting Utah Jazz on Monday in Dallas, This will be their second game in the first round in this season. Utah Jazz won 99-93 in a thrilling game on Saturday in Dallas, Luka Doncic didn't play in this game due to injury and he is doubtful to play this one too.

Utah Jazz got the best of the first playoffs game with the Mavs, Donovan Mitchell scored 32 points, 6 Rebounds and 6 Assists even though it wasn't his best game shooting 34% from the field, Rudy Gobert dominated the paint with 17 rebounds in this game (15 Defensive and 2 Offensive). Utah will try to steal another one away especially of Luka doesn't play this one too which will makes it easier for them when he get back with 2-0 Lead.

Dallas Mavericks have played a decent game without Luka as it the game was decided in the last minute, Five players from Dallas got double digit points in this game as Brunson scored 24 points and Dinwidde scored 22 points in this one. Tim Hardaway Jr. Is still out and Luka Doncic is doubtful still. Dallas had a bad shooting night with 38% shooting from the field and 28% from the Three and they got to shoot better to have a chance to win this one.

Head to Head

Utah Jazz are 6-4 straight up last 10 games vs Dallas Mavericks but Dallas have covered 6-4 ATS in those games. First playoffs game ended in a 99-93 Utah win away so Utah covered and it went Under the total, the O/U is 4-6 to the Under with Utah averaging 111.2 and Dallas averaging 110 points a game.


Even though Luka Doncic is doubtful to play this game, I still like Dallas to cover in this game. Dallas Mavericks was the right play in the last game but they didn't cover by one points and I will roll the dice with the Mavs here again to have a better results than last time. If Luka plays that will give them better chance of winning but I think they cover either way with or without Luka so give me the home team here plus the points.

Pick: Dallas Mavericks +5.5 (-110)
