Jazz host Luka-less Mavericks

The Utah Jazz have bounced between wins and losses the last few games as they attempt to climb the standings into more stable playoff spots. Tonight the Jazz host the Dallas Mavericks who will be making the trip without star guard and MVP Darkhorse, Luka Doncic.

Perhaps it’s for the best that Doncic doesn’t play as the last two star guards Utah faced — Kyrie Irving and Damian Lillard — put up a combined 108 points in those two games. Of course, there’s always a chance the Jazz go for their “let lesser-known player go off in place of sitting stars” tendency, but the Mavericks will also be without Maxi Kleber and Christian Wood so they’ll be running low on guys capable of going off for huge nights.
