Tonight the Utah Jazz tip off against the Dallas Mavericks. We know the relative strengths of these two teams. We know some of their main rotation guys pretty well. And we know how they break down on the roster level. They will be without Harris, and we will be without Exum, Burks, Burke, and Pleiss. They are at home. And they have our number in their building. Dallas has the advantage, but Utah is playing very well right now. The Mavs will look for their 11th straight win in their gym against the Jazz, while the Jazz are looking for their 7th straight win this season. One of these two fan bases is going to be upset after tonight.
