Jazz Playing Best Basketball Of The Season

The Jazz will face the Mavericks having played their best basketball of the season over the second half of December.

Though they sit at just 14-19 overall, the Jazz have won four of their last five games and seven of their last 10.

The streak coincides with improved health throughout the roster after a string of injuries to open the year.

With their recent success, the Jazz sit just 2.5 games back of the 10th and final play-in tournament spot in the West.

Mavericks Look For Momentum Before Homestand

The Mavericks are hoping to snap a recent string of poor play as they prepare to host an extended homestand.

Dallas is just 4-6 in its last 10 games and has dropped to the sixth seed in the Western Conference.

After facing the Jazz the Mavericks will return to Dallas where they will play a season-high seven consecutive games at home.

Luka Doncic (quad), Kyrie Irving (heel), and Dante Exum (heel) were all listed as questionable Monday morning, but cleared shortly before tip-off
