Utah Jazz Betting

The Utah Jazz was able to pull a Game 1 upset over the Dallas Mavericks in a defensive battle. Leading the team in scoring was Donovan Mitchell providing 32 points along with six rebounds, six assists, and two three-pointers. He shot only 34% of his 29 shots but was accurate on the free throw line missing only once in 11 tries. Bogdan Bogdanovic provided another scoring punch for the team with 26 points, five rebounds and four assists while Mike Conley Jr. helped out with 13 points. Rudy Gobert controlled the paint with 17 rebounds and three blocks while Jordan Clarkson had quality minutes off the bench chipping in with 10 points.
