Jazz Host Mavericks After Kyrie Irving Trade

Feb 6, 2023, 2:06 PM | Updated: 2:09 pm

SALT LAKE CITY – The Utah Jazz will catch a Dallas Mavericks roster that is in flux after their blockbuster trade for Kyrie Irving.

The Irving trade as announced Sunday and has left the Mavericks extremely shorthanded as they face the Jazz for the second time in the last 10 days.

The Jazz meanwhile will look to get back on track after falling to the Atlanta Hawks on Friday.

Mavericks Short Bodies After Irving Trade

On Sunday, The Athletic’s Shams Charania announced that the Mavericks were trading guard Spencer Dinwiddie and forward Dorian Finney-Smith to the Brooklyn Nets in exchange for Irving and Markieff Morris.

Irving has 48 hours to report to Dallas and won’t be available when they face the Jazz on Monday night.

The Mavericks had already announced that superstar guard Luka Doncic would miss the game against the Jazz with a heel injury.

Dinwiddie torched the Jazz for 35 points on 11-23 shooting when the Mavericks were in town on January 30, despite suffering a 108-100 loss.

Though shorthanded, Dallas will welcome forward Christian Wood back to the lineup after missing the last eight games with a thumb injury.

Guard Frank Ntilikina is questionable with a non-Covid illness.

Jazz Look For Bounceback Win

The Jazz had one of their uglier performances in Friday’s loss to the Atlanta Hawks shooting a sluggish 1-12 from the three-point line in the first quarter.

The Hawks built a 20-point lead in the second quarter and coasted to a stress-free 115-108 victory in Salt Lake City.

Rookie Walker Kessler had a rare down performance against Atlanta scoring two points and grabbing five rebounds in 17 minutes.

Kessler is averaging 13.7 points, 12.3 rebounds, and 3.4 blocks in Jazz wins since entering the starting lineup in early January, and just 6.3 points, 7.0 rebounds, and 2.3 blocks in the losses.
