Luka Doncic had to leave the Mavericks’ final game of the season after suffering a calf strain, according to the team. Of course, his status the most crucial factor in this series. The Mavericks are the higher seeded team, and have home court advantage, but are slight underdogs based on the opening lines.
The Mavericks and Jazz split their season series 2-2 — the Jazz won the first two matchups and the Mavs took the last two in March.
BetMGM has the series listed at +175 to go seven games and +185 to go six games, which could change significantly depending on Doncic’s updated status.
The Jazz stared the season with promise, but hit a few rough stretches throughout. For a good portion of the season they were third in the West, but the Grizzlies and Mavericks were able to overtake them.
They have been particularly bad on the road with a 20-21 record away from home — the Chicago Bulls are the only other top-six team with a below-.500 record in road games.
They’ve also blown a number of fourth-quarter leads. Their 13 losses when leading after the third quarter are the most of any team in the playoffs or Play-In Tournament.
