jazz vs mavericks

Odds  and  Predictions

GAME 5

Dallas Mavericks

Strengths

Luka looked good on his return. Brunson is averaging 30pts/g. Kleber is shooting 67% from three. Dallas has the offense to win this if they can find a way to deal with Gobert. 

1. Luka's Return 2. Jalen Brunson  3. Maxi Kleber

Luka Doncic - (G) 30 PTS, 10 RBDS and 4 AST in game 4 was a good haul on his 1st game back. Luka can inspire the team. 

Dallas Mavericks

Weaknesses

Dinwiddie is shooting 33% in the playoffs, Dallas needs more from him. Powell is getting bossed on the boards and needs to step up against Gobert. 

1. Dinwiddie 2. Powell 3. Rebounding

UTAH JAZZ

Strengths

Mitchell makes the play, Clarkson scores the points and Gobert backs up the team. All you can do is wait for them to go cold but then Bogdanovic steps in. 

1. Mitchell 2. Gobert 3. Clarkson

rudy gobert - (C) gobert got a mindblowing 10 offensive rebounds in game 4

UTAH JAZZ

weaknesses

Mitchell has gone 6 of 24 from 3 and won't always have Clarkson to bail him out. Conley has been cold at 33% FG and if Gobert gets hurt the Jazz don't have much to replace him with. 

1. Mitchell's 3s 2. Conley's Shooting 3. Dependence on Gobert

INJURIES

Luka is day-to-day with a calf injury but is set to play game 5.

LUKA Doncic- CALF

Tim Hardaway JR - Foot

THJ has broken his foot and is out of the playoffs. 

Maxi Klieber - Ankle

Kleber is day to day but is expected to play and is shooting well. 

Trent FOrrest - Foot

Trent Forrest has a left foot sprain and will be re-evaluated next week

ODDS

Vegas likes Dallas's odds at home now that Luka has had a warm up game, but he looks a little slow on defense. The Mavs would never sit him, but the Jazz can exploit his sore lower leg with their high pace game. 

Mavs -3.5

Prediction

Jazz 105 - Dallas 102
