Utah Jazz DFS Notes
In 38 minutes, Donovan Mitchell shot an inefficient 7-of-21 shot for 23 points, six rebounds, seven assists, two steals, and one turnover in Saturday’s 100-99 victory over the Mavericks. Mitchell continues to struggle shooting the ball in this series as he is only making 39.7% of his shots. However, he made some big plays down the stretch Saturday night to tie this series 2-2. This series could ultimately be about more than wins and losses if the Jazz can’t advance. A first-round exit could mean massive changes in Salt Lake City this summer. Game 5 is Monday night in Dallas.
Dallas Mavericks DFS Notes
In 34 minutes, Luka Doncic hit 11-of-21 shots for 30 points, ten rebounds, four assists, two steals, and four turnovers in Saturday’s 100-99 loss. After a three-game absence, Doncic returned to action and didn’t miss a beat. He made tough shot after tough shot and didn’t seem bothered by his calf injury. The rest of the Mavericks players did a great job by taking a 2-1 lead over the Jazz, but now that The Matador is back in action, they are a dark horse to advance in the playoffs if they can hold off the Jazz.
