Mavericks vs Jazz Prediction & Pick
Outside of Hardy and Lawson, Dallas shot only 33.3% from the floor in their first game and racked up 29 personal fouls. Playing a two-man game is not going to get the job done moving forward. Players like Miye Oni and Alessandro Pajola will need to step up or it will be a long week for Dallas fans.
Slating this game a a near pick 'em seems a bit disrespectful to the Jazz. Utah stifled anything Atlanta wanted to do on offense in their first game and dominated on the glass. Rookies like Johnny Juzang and Kofi Cockburn should be able to make more of an impact after getting their first taste of action.
Back the Jazz to keep their momentum going with another win (-132).
