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.
