Jazz vs Mavericks Preview

This matchup could be one of the more compelling ones in the first round of the Western Conference Playoffs. Dallas and Utah came into the post-season jockeying for positions with homecourt advantage in the balance.

A great deal of this had to do with the level of play that Luka Doncić was able to elevate to after the All-Star Break. So impressive was his play that it put him in the conversation for the MVP Award this year.

The conversation took a sharp turn elsewhere when the former Real Madrid star ended up suffering a calf injury in the regular-season finale. Since then, there is a great deal of speculation in regards to the possibility of him being able to start the series or even be able to play.

The Mavs remain rather hermetic in terms of his status as the medical staff have not ruled him out for Game 1. Head coach Jason Kidd said on Tuesday that Doncic has been in “good spirits,” and guard Brunson said he’s “very optimistic” that Doncic plays in Game 1. However, as optimistic as Brunson may be, this will just come down to how Doncic’s calf is responding to the treatment it’s receiving.

This is arguably a very delicate moment as they could potentially lose a player that is playing at a superlative level and gives the Mavs a major advantage compared to anyone else in the league.

Not having the favorite tag on the Utah Jazz might be exactly what the doctor ordered. Their recent underwhelming performances in the playoffs might also have to do with that, but it also helps with looking to forget their their 2020 collapse against the Denver Nuggets and last year’s elimination at the hands of the Clippers after having earned the bet record in the league.

Yet it is the storylines that surround the Quin Snyder’s team that might be their greatest hinderance. The reports of the deteriorating relationship between Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell and Snyder starting to eye opportunities elsewhere, the questions seem to be outnumbering the answer at this moment. All that said, this team does have all the pieces in place to make an important run in the playoffs
