The Dallas Mavericks continue their five-game homestand on Wednesday night against the Utah Jazz. Dallas split the first two games, including a nail-biting win over the Magic on Sunday night. Luka Doncic will be looking to lead his team to their first winning streak of the season as he tries to drop 30-plus for the seventh straight game.
The Jazz are one of the surprises of the early season. They traded Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert this offseason, and everyone expected them to finish near the bottom of the standings, but Utah is 6-2 so far. They have a ton of talented veterans that will be looking to pull another upset on Wednesday night at the American Airlines Center.
Can Luka be the first player since Wilt Chamberlain to drop 30-plus in seven straight games to begin a season on Nov. 2? Fans will not want to miss the attempt, so here is a look at the odds, how to watch, and more.

Luka Doncic feasts as the Mavs go to 4-3 on the young season and secure their first winning streak of the year.

The Mavs have three games left in their homestand before hitting the road for a rematch against the Orlando Magic. Dallas has two games in their next four against teams they have already played this season. Here is a look at what is ahead after Wednesday’s contests against the Jazz.
Nov. 4 vs Toronto Raptors at 7:30 p.m. CT
Nov. 7 vs Brooklyn Nets at 8:45 p.m. CT
Nov. 9 at Orlando Magic at 6:00 p.m. CT
Luka Doncic and the Dallas Mavericks have not played their best basketball yet, and the team could easily be 6-0. That is scary for the rest of the league. Expect the Mavs to keep searching for their defensive identity, and enjoy number 77 putting up massive numbers because the ride is just beginning.
