Meanwhile, Dallas fell to the Milwaukee Bucks last Thursday, losing 102-95. Despite the loss, Dallas got a solid performance from point guard Jalen Brunson, who had 19 points and eight assists.
Utah is the favorite in this one, with an expected margin of victory of 13.5 points. This might not be the best time to take the Jazz ATS as they’ve let punters down for the past four straight games.
Utah is now 22-9 while Dallas is 15-16. A pair of offensive stats to watch out for: Utah ranks first in the league when it comes to field goal percentage, at 47.80% on the season.
