The Utah Jazz (6-5) take on the Dallas Mavericks (8-4) tonight in a place where the team has had some struggles winning in. (See Game Preview for more info) Nevertheless, Utah finds a way to win games where they should not, especially on the road. , , and company face off against , , and . Woo!
Pretty big in Texas, but not anywhere else . . . somehow 'horning in' on our location in Quebec though . . .
The Mavs are trying to get back to the NBA Finals in a crowded Western Conference. They were last there in 2011, and since then have made the playoffs in three of the four seasons since, and been bounced out in the first round each time. It's like what happened to the Jazz after their finals trips. And really, it's a full-circle end of an era. The Jazz held on, brought in vets from other teams and tried to prop open their window of opportunity. But it closed without winning a trophy. The Mavs made it happen, and everything else is just gravy.
