The Utah Jazz haven’t given us much reason to trust them lately. They are the losers of three consecutive contests. Of course, before that they had won three in a row.Inconsistency has been a theme for the Jazz (45-29) all season. On the other hand, the same could be said for the Mavericks (45-29).

With identical records, it’s no surprise that this game is shaping up as a playoff preview. If the season ended today, these teams would meet as the fourth and fifth seeds.

The last time they met, a little over a month ago, the Jazz emerged victorious. We’ll see if they can handle the same in tonight’s action.

Prediction Utah Jazz vs Dallas Mavericks

Picking Utah Jazz wins has been making us look silly lately. In the interest of testing our relationship with fate, we won’t do that here.

Both of these teams have been touch-and-go lately. However, the Jazz appear to be more fundamentally compromised by injuries. With Bogdanovic and House Jr. sidelined, Quin Snyder lacks a reliable wing to start alongside Royce O’Neale.

His system may be based on just one. Eric Paschall, Rudy Gay and Juancho Hernangomez did their best to make up for the absence of the two, but they are both 4/5. Bogdanovic and House Jr. are both 4/3. It becomes apparent that Snyder’s system thrives on this archetype.

Prediction: Mavericks 117, Jazz 112
