End of 3: Mavs 93, Jazz 73.
The Jazz have competed defensively in the third quarter. That's half the battle. And the offense has come

Good run by the Jazz....deficit down to 20 now

Jazz need to send their game-ops crew to Dallas. Mavs entertainment is top-notch. Nowitzki, Parsons and Ellis just did a hilarious rap.
It's just the Jazz -- and Utah's on the butt end of a back-to-back -- but this is an offensive clinic by the Mavs. Mavs 65, Jazz 35, 2:49 2Q
Embarrassing first half for the Jazz. No other way around it
The Jazz are young and on a back to back. The Mavs are at home and miffed about Tuesday. Dallas shooting
Terrific inbounds play by the Jazz. Exum curls around and gets a dunk after a nice entry pass from Hayward.
Not sure why this is but Gobert checked in at 3:03 in 1st quarter and checked out at 9:00 of 2nd. Jazz scored 2 pts in that stretch

Dunkin' Donuts missing great opportunity by not being a corporate sponsor of Jazz defense.
Mavs 36, Jazz 20 after 1Q. Mavs go 16-of-25 from floor despite a 2-of-8 quarter for Chandler Parsons. Lots of lobs.
To say this is an awful defensive first quarter for the Jazz is a diss to awful defensive first quarters everywhere
Jazz trail the Mavs 36-20 after the first quarter.
End of 1: Mavs 36, Jazz 20.
Rodney Hood's been looking forward to playing against fellow Mississippian Monta Ellis. The Jazz rookie is on the floor with him now.
The Mavs have hit their first eight shots to take a 20-11 lead over the Jazz. I haven't seen shooting like this since Media Training Camp.
Five minutes into this game and the Jazz have yet to get a single defensive stop....wow
I assume all those preseason 35-win predictions for the Jazz are being recalculated as we speak.
Quin Snyder took a quick timeout after Dallas jumped ahead of the Jazz 11-4.
Jazz' first five defensive possessions? not good
Jazz' first three defensive possessions? not good
Kevin Love playing a bit harder tonight than he did in Minnesota finale vs Jazz last year.
Jazz have new really cool road shooting jackets. They look like a silver with navy blue lettering. Too far away to take a picture
Big minutes last night for Burke (38), Burks (35) & Hayward (38). Snyder left them in longer when Jazz made a run, but said it wasn't ideal.
Jazz rookie Dante Exum said it was a relief to play his first NBA game and especially to hit his first shot as a pro.
Joe Ingles is active again tonight. Sort of a surprise choice yesterday, but Snyder says he's "easy to play with" & Jazz need 4th wing mins.
Jazz rookies sang to Snyder on the team charter. He said the NBA didn't give him a very good birthday present with a road game at Dallas.
