Dirk Nowitzki continues to be over relied on late in his career. Throughout this game it was hard for the Mavericks to generate any offensive runs. Harrison Barnes led the Mavs with 14 points, but is going to need to contribute more if the Mavs hope to contend for a playoff spot in the tough west.
For the Jazz, the development of Rudy Gobert continues to be fun to watch, in 23 minutes he scored 12 points, 12 rebounds and had 3 blocks. George Hill continues to look a gem for the Jazz scoring a game high 25 points and contributing 6 rebounds and 4 assists, a great game for what’s likely the most underrated point guard in the association.
