Dallas Mavericks: What to watch for against the Jazz in the sixth seeding game

The Dallas Mavericks are coming off a massive win over the Milwaukee Bucks. Luka Doncic had a monster 36-point triple-double in what may have been the best game of his career. The Mavs came through in the clutch to pick up the overtime victory over the team with the best record in the NBA.

They are back in action on Monday against the Utah Jazz. It is the first of a back-to-back for the Mavericks. Utah won the previous two meetings this season. Dallas is just two games back of the Jazz in the standings. Expect that to be some extra motivation to pick up a victory on Monday afternoon.

Fans will not want to miss this game. Here is a look at how and why they should tune in as the Mavs face the Jazz on Aug. 10.

Dallas Mavericks vs. Utah Jazz storyline to follow: Defending Gobert

Rudy Gobert has torched the Mavericks this season. He had 22 points, 17 rebounds, and five blocks in the January Utah win. Gobert followed that with 17 points and 15 rebounds on a perfect seven of seven from the field in the second meeting. The Defensive Player of the Year has dominated against Dallas. Expect another monster performance on Monday.

There has been speculation that the Mavericks may try to acquire Gobert this offseason. That is just another reason to keep an eye on him during the showdown.
