The Utah Jazz look to hold serve when they host the Dallas Mavericks in Game 3 of their first-round playoff series on Thursday night.
Utah took Game 1 with a narrow 99-93 victory over the Mavericks in Dallas. Hoping to avoid disaster on their home court, the Mavericks bounced back to take Game 2 110-104 to even series at 1-1 heading into Game 3. Given that this is the No. 4 vs. No. 5 series in the first round, all expectations are that this one between Dallas and Utah will go at least six, possibly the full seven.
Tipoff from Vivint Arena in Salt Lake City, Utah will be at 9:00 p.m. ET, 7:00 p.m. MT on Thursday, April 21.

Utah Jazz vs. Dallas Mavericks Game 3 prediction
With this game being in the Rocky Mountains, the pace will slow down quite a bit. This plays right into what the defensive-minded Jazz want to do. Though Luka Doncic may be making his return to the hardwood for Dallas on Thursday, his conditioning will not be where it needs to be to steal a game from Utah in Salt Lake City. This will be a rock fight, but one where the Jazz come out on top.
Prediction: Jazz 91, Mavericks 84.
