gotta do it. Gotta fade the mavericks here. This is a major fatigue spot as evidenced by the jazz being 4 point favorites over a superior team on paper. Mavs are coming off a tough OT loss to the LakeShow, last game on a west coast trip.
The thing about west coast road trips is that they are tougher road games then east coast swings. This is due to the thin air in rockie mountain cities, & the long distances traveled between west coast locations.
Mavs have traveled to oakland (1700 miles), portland (630 miles), LA (963 miles), & finally Salt Lake City (690 miles). This will be their 4th game in 5 days, with all that travel in between, OT loss last night, & playing in thin air. They are going to play terrible, there is no way to defy physics here with such an old team.
Jazz in a blowout.
