Donovan Mitchell had 22 points, six assists and two rebounds. Dante Exum added 11 points and two assists off the bench.
Mavs unable to hang with unbeaten Raptors
Dallas suffered a 116-107 defeat at Toronto Friday night to fall to 2-3 on the season. The Mavericks trailed 69-50 at halftime en route to the loss. Luka Doncic paced Dallas with 22 points on 7-of-14 shooting plus five rebounds and four assists. Wesley Matthews had 21 points and an assist. DeAndre Jordan had 18 points, 15 boards and five assists.

NBA Betting Trends
The Jazz are 0-5 ATS in their last five games played on zero days of rest. The over is 12-2 in the last 14 Utah games on Sundays.
The Mavericks are 6-1-1 ATS in their last eight home games versus the Jazz. The over is 4-0 in the last four meetings in Dallas.
Utah has struggled in back-to-back settings dating back to last season. While the Jazz smashed the Pelicans, Dallas should be the more-rested team even after traveling back from Toronto. The Mavs have been tough at home so far and I think the recipe is right for them to at least cover the spread here if not win outright.
