SALT LAKE CITY – The Dallas Mavericks were on the verge of another road victory, but run into a block in the final minutes. Rudy Gobert led the Utah Jazz to a 112-107 victory.
Luka Dončić scored team-high 25 points, seven assists and six rebounds. The Mavericks have now dropped two of three after winning four straight games.
“I think we did a good job today, especially here where it’s tough to play. We had a lot of open shots down the stretch. We just didn’t hit them,” said Dončić after the game.
The Mavs will return to action on Monday against the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Dallas completed a trade to acquire 7-foot center Willie Cauley-Stein from Golden State for a second-round draft pick.
