DALLAS – At the end of the third quarter in the game against the Dallas Mavericks, Kris Dunn took the ball on a fastbreak and made two defenders jump with a  smooth euro step finish.

The layup gave Dunn his 11th point of the night.

Kris Dunn was very impactful in the absence of Jordan Clarkson and Collin Sexton. He added 6 rebounds and 5 assists in the first three quarters.

The Jazz made 8 threes in the first half. Dunn was able to get in on the action.

Markkanen was the leading scorer for the Jazz through three quarters with 29.

Dallas’ star backcourt of Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving picked apart the Utah defense for much of the game.

The Jazz, who have already ruled out guard Collin Sexton due to a strained hamstring will also be without starters Walker Kessler (non-Covid Illness) and Jordan Clarkson (finger sprain) who were both added to the injury report prior to the game.

The Mavericks meanwhile have listed Maxi Kleber as questionable with a hamstring injury, and JaVale McGee as doubtful with an injured ankle.

Kessler, Clarkson Out For Jazz

After losing their last three games the Jazz find themselves at 31-34 on the season and in a four-way tie with the New Orleans Pelicans, Portland Trail Blazers, and Los Angeles Lakers in the West.

A loss to Dallas, teamed with wins from the Lakers and Oklahoma City Thunder could push the Jazz as far down as the 13th seed in the West in what would be their lowest ranking of the season.

The Jazz have been without Sexton since returning from the All-Star break and don’t expect the guard to return on their current six-game road trip.

Kessler was added to the injury report early Tuesday morning while Clarkson was added in the early afternoon.

The team will welcome back All-Star Lauri Markkanen who missed Sunday’s loss to Oklahoma City with a back injury.

Mavericks Looking For Chemistry

The new-look Mavericks will be searching for much-needed team chemistry against the Jazz. Dallas has lost seven of their last 12 games since acquiring guard Kyrie Irving.

Worse yet, Dallas is just 2-5 with both Irving and Luka Doncic on the floor with the playoffs rapidly approaching.

The Mavericks own the seventh-best record in the West at 33-32. They could potentially climb in the standings with a win over the Jazz if Minnesota loses to Philadelphia.

Dallas will look to clinch the season series against the Jazz. The Mavericks have already won two of the first three matchups this year.
