The Mavericks have dominated the playoff tie by winning 3 out of the 5 games and their defense has managed to keep the dangerous Bojan Bogdanovic and Donovan Mitchell quiet, who have kept the Jazz alive in the tournament since the start of the season. Mitchell could manage only 9 points in the last game. Despite the brilliance of Jordan Clarkson and Rudy Gobert, the Jazz suffered a defeat and went 3-2 down in the playoff tie.
The match was pretty one-sided the whole match with Doncic stealing the show with 33 points, resulting in 13 rebounds and 5 assists. On the other hand, Dorian Finney-Smith and Jalen Brunson lead the Mavericks to a comfortable win and ensured themselves a 3-2 lead in the tie. Both combined for 37 points and the heroics of Dwight Powell in the defense also caused troubles for the Jazz’s players with match ending 77-102 for the Mavericks.
Utah Jazz Match Preview
Although the Jazz were counted as one of the favorites to win the NBA this year, they have been left stunned by the performance of their opponent and it looks like an early exit for Quin Snyder’s side. Bojan Bogdanovic and Donovan Mitchell have been kept shut for almost all the 5 games in the playoff tie and the only plan for the Jazz’s other players would be to take attention off them and also must cope with the defense which has been the problem for them all season long.

Jason Kidd’s men are in a gallant form at the moment after the last match and will be looking to finish the tie with another victory. They will be looking to dismantle the Jazz defense yet again and Dwight Powell will have to cope with well to keep the Jazz forwards at bay from scoring.
Donovan Mitchell has been in a breathtaking form all season long and last game was a bit off for him as could manage just 9 points, with 2 rebounds and 1 assists which ended in a dismal defeat for his team. He will be looking to carry this run of form and take his team to the next round as the Jazz will be counting on him heavily today.
Luka Doncic has been hard to stop for the Jazz defenders and last game was no different as he notched up 33 points, with 13 rebounds and 5 assists which ensured a great win for his team. He will be looking to carry this run of form and take his team to the next round.
Jalen Brunson is in a stellar form and will continue to deliver for his team with his offensive abilities. He managed to pick up 24 points with 5 rebounds and 4 assists in the last game and it’s a no brainer to expect a great from Jalen today.
