SALT LAKE CITY – The Utah Jazz will come dressed in black as they prepare to face the Dallas Mavericks in Game 6 of their opening-round playoff series, they just hope they aren’t dressed for a funeral.

Black shirts will hang from every fan’s seat at Vivint Arena with the phrase “Embrace The Noise” printed on the front, while the team will look to avoid being eliminated in a must-win Game 6.

The Jazz dropped Game 5 to the Mavericks in embarrassing fashion, falling 102-77, and would see their season come to an end with a Game 6 loss.

Mitchell Available Against Mavericks

Donovan Mitchell will be available when the Jazz welcome Dallas back to Salt Lake City.

The guard left the team’s Game 5 loss with 4:41 left to play in the fourth quarter due to hamstring tightness, but an MRI Tuesday revealed no damage.

Mitchell has bi-lateral quadriceps bruises in both legs but said Wednesday he planned to play.

“I’m thankful that it was negative,” Mitchell said of the MRI. “I’ll be ready to go tomorrow.”

Center Rudy Gobert is also available despite suffering a bee sting near his right eye after Game 4.

Mavericks Look To Close Out Series

The Mavericks can advance to the second round of the playoffs for the first time in 11 seasons, having been eliminated in the opening round in six consecutive postseason trips.

Dallas last won a playoff series in 2011 when they beat the Miami Heat for their first-ever NBA title.

Luka Doncic has carried the Mavericks since rejoining the team in Game 4 after returning from a strained calf.

The superstar guard is averaging 31.5 points, 11.5 rebounds, and 4.5 assists as the Mavericks have split Games 4 and 5.

Broadcast

The Jazz and Mavericks will tip-off Game 6 at 8 pm MT and can be heard on KSL NewsRadio and The Zone Sports Network. The game will be televised on TNT, AT&T SportsNet, and FuboTV.
