After a big win against the Denver Nuggets, the Mavericks kept the streak rolling in dominating fashion by destroying the Utah Jazz 113-97, and this may have been a game circle on the Mavericks' calendar.

Earlier this year, on New Year's Day, the Jazz blew out the Mavs by nearly 40 points. Luka Doncic shot 30 percent from the field, resulting in his second-worst shooting performance this season. This game gave the Mavericks another chance to improve their record while instilling some revenge from the last time the two teams played.

Daniel Gafford had his hand everywhere in this game; he contributed on offense, catching anything above the rim and on the glass, giving the Mavericks more second-chance opportunities.

The Mavericks played elite team defense against the Jazz, allowing for easy steals, which led to fast-break points and highlight reel plays.

Mavericks stars Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving were great per usual. Doncic had a game-high 34 points and Irving led the team with a +37 plus-minus.

The Dallas Mavericks set a franchise record with 18 dunks against the Jazz. Gafford led the way with 10 dunks, but everyone got a piece of the rim, even Irving.

The Mavs are playing good basketball at the perfect time as they continue to bolster their record and climb the standings. They'll need to continue to play like this if they want to get out of the Play-In Tournament.

With four home games remaining, the Mavs look scary in the Western Conference. Capitalizing on the home games will be important, but getting road wins this close to the end of the season will only prepare the team for the postseason.

With 12 games remaining in the season, stay tuned for more updates on the Dallas Mavericks.
