The Dallas Mavericks travel to Utah to face the Jazz on Thursday night in Game 6 of their best-of-seven first-round playoff series. Dallas leads the series, 3-2, and is one win away from winning a playoff series for the first time since the 2011 NBA Finals. Although the Mavs won’t be popping champagne this time around for a first-round series win… the ready-to-party fan base just might.

Dallas is fresh off a season-best defensive performance, holding the Jazz to 77 points in a 102-77 win in Game 5. The Mavs held Utah star Donovan Mitchell to as many points (4) as turnovers (4); marking the first playoff game in his NBA career with fewer than ten points. He limped off the court in the fourth quarter and did not return.
