While the Dallas Mavericks are on a four-game winning streak, the Utah Jazz will visit Dallas hoping for their tenth straight victory, once again playing like the top-seed. The Jazz have stepped up their game after a sort-of slump earlier, securing a stunning 137-91 win over the Orlando Magic. They even shot their season-best 55.4% from the field.
Now, the Jazz are also on a 22-game winning streak at home. "This is one of those nights for us where we played really well, and we played the right way," Jazz coach Quin Snyder said after their last win. "We played a team that is going through a transition. That said, we were happy with the way we played and continue to emphasise our identity as a team".

Doncic, averaging 28.6 points per game, is carrying the Mavericks. However, they will face the Jazz without Kristaps Porzingis, Josh Richardson or Maxi Kleber – their usual starters.
