With Luka Doncic out for the Dallas Mavericks, Jazz fans likely expected an easy win, but the Mavericks pushed the Utah Jazz to the end in this one. It took an all-star level game from Lauri Markkanen to hold Spencer Dinwiddie and the Dallas Mavericks 108-100.
The Mavericks are obviously a different team without Luka Doncic, but they found some ways to take advantage of the Jazz’s weak defense. Dinwiddie hit some incredible shots on his way to 35 points for the game. It was an impressive performance all around as he shot 11/23 from the field and 6/11 from three with 8 assists.
