The playoff chase continues as the Jazz return from a three game road trip that saw them extend their season high road losing streak to nine games. Dallas supplied the stage for the Jazz’ latest road defeat on Sunday night. Despite winning the battle in the paint, 52-36, Utah struggled to close out open shooters all night, allowing the Mavericks to shoot 9-of-18 from three. Enes Kanter led all Jazz players with 17 points off the bench. Thirty seven-year-old Mike James went 3-of-4 from behind the arc and scored 19 points for the Mavericks off the bench.
