Doncic and Dallas set the Jazz on fire in Game 5 or more appropriately, they froze them. If not for their bench, Utah would’ve been outscored by at least 40 points. A 25-point victory on Tuesday night tipped the scales in the Mavericks’ favor. To see each team’s chances, check out our predictions for Game 6 of Jazz v Mavericks.
Jazz v Mavericks Game 6 Predictions
The Dallas Mavericks dominated the Jazz in Game 5. Utah couldn’t take the lead once and at one point they were trailing by 33 points. They managed to narrow that to 25 points, which was the deficit in the final score, 102-77. This might sound wild to some, but Utah’s Game 5 performance was possibly the worst one this postseason. They shot 10% from three and Donovan Mitchell had one of the worst games of his life. In addition, Doncic’s return from injury has brought a lot of trouble for the Jazz. They only won by one point at home in Game 4 and then got blown out Tuesday. However, there is still some hope but the Jazz v Mavericks Game 6 predictions don’t look too good for Utah. This is the 6th consecutive playoff run for the Jazz but they are yet to advance past the second round.
Not to mention, Mitchell exited Game 5 with a hamstring injury. His MRI came back negative but he isn’t certain to start on Thursday. Mitchell’s status is listed as day-to-day but the Jazz cannot afford to sideline him for the whole game. Luka Doncic gave the Jazz nightmares as he tallied the whole opposing team’s points in the 3rd quarter with 19. Despite Luka’s return, Jalen Brunson is still the MVP of this series for Dallas as he kept the Mavericks in. The Utah Jazz will have to fix their perimeter shooting if they want to have a chance of winning. Bogdanovic, Mitchell, and Clarkson will be key in this matter. Game 6 predictions of the Jazz vs Mavericks are in favor of Dallas but not everything is lost. All things considered, if Luka keeps up this form, there won’t be a Game 7 in this series.
