Utah shot 42.2% from three-point range, but they held the Thunder to 20% from beyond the arc. Bojan Bogdanovic was the standout star for the Jazz, scoring 35 points on an efficient 11-of-19 shooting from the field and 11-of-18 from three.

The Mavs will not have Jalen Brunson for tonight’s game due to a quad contusion, while Doncic is probable with a toe sprain.

Over/Under: Over 216
In their first two matchups this season, the total points scored were 236 and 223. If Doncic does not play, then that will affect the total for tonight’s game. However, we’ll just act as if he will suit and give it a go. The total has gone under in eight of the Jazz’s last 12 games, while the total has gone over in four of the Mavericks last six games.
