The Utah Jazz travel to the American Airlines Center to meet the Dallas Mavericks for the first time this season. After a hard fought overtime win on Saturday against the Portland Trail Blazers, the Jazz will face off against the 11-8 Mavericks, who have just lost back-to-back games.

Coming into this game on back-to-back losses for the first time this season, Dallas put together an historic 30-0 run in the fourth quarter of their Saturday night game against the Oklahoma City Thunder, coming up just short in a 126-120 loss.

Last time out saw a season-high 21 points and 6 assists from Keyonte George and first meaningful NBA minutes for #9 pick Taylor Hendricks. The Jazz will be hoping that the rookies continue to progress in such an exciting way.

With Kyrie Irving having missed the previous Oklahoma City Thunder matchup with right foot soreness and Luka Dončić having missed the game prior vs Memphis, the duo are likely to reconnect on the court against the Jazz.

The question for the Jazz remains on whether Walker Kessler will return to the starting line up or Ömer Yurtseven will retain the spot after a monster performance last time out in the victory over the Trail Blazers.
