Utah Jazz's Latest Performance :
The Jazz is coming off a win against the Grizzlies and for the second game running Joe Ingles was the leading scorer he finished the game with 19 points on the night. The Jazz won this one, after losing the first two in Vivint Arena. Gobert had a huge second half after being scoreless in the first he ended the game with 15 points and grabbed 16 boards. Dante Exum also played a big role. After playing fewer than three minutes against Boston last Friday night, Snyder turned to Exum in his regular spot in the rotation and then some, after Ricky Rubio found himself in foul trouble. Exum changed the game with his ball pressure and ended up with nine points after getting loose in transition a couple of times. The Jazz handed the Grizzlies their first home loss of the season. Mitchell will be looking to bounce back after scoring only 12 points against Memphis while shooting 3-of-14 from the floor. Going up against Dallas will mean Gobert will get matched up with Jordan in this game.
Dallas Mavericks 's Latest Performance :
The Mavericks were able to pick up their first road win of the season against the Bulls they will be making their return home where they are 4-2 on the season. Harrison Barnes led the Mavericks with 23 points, five rebounds, and four steals. The Mavericks started the game slowly but they got helped from their bench who came to the rescue. Luka didn’t have a great game but he still finished the game with 11 points, six rebounds, and three assists. J.J. Barea scored 14 points (6-of-12 FG) with five rebounds, five assists, and one 3-pointer he was impressive yet again coming off the bench he scored 21 points in his last game he is providing a spark off the bench that the Mavs desperately need. The starters must do a better job as they are getting into a habit of falling behind early and have to rely on the bench if they keep up this trend the Mavs will have a tough time competing with the Jazz at home.

The Mavericks did the right choice trading for them at draft night. For the Jazz, they will get their three-game winning streak snapped on the road as Mitchell continues to struggle shooting the ball to start the season.
