The Dallas Mavericks handed the Utah Jazz their ninth straight road loss in a 113-108 loss in the Lonestar state.
Enes Kanter had 17 points and four rebounds on seven for nine shooting off the bench and Paul Milsap had 15 points and nine rebounds for the Jazz, who are now tied with Dallas for ninth place in the west.
Al Jefferson also had 15 points and three rebounds.
Point guard Mike James led the Mavericks with 19 points, three rebounds and five assists and went seven for ten from the field.
The Jazz have lost eight of the last 10 games and are tied with Dallas for ninth place, two games behind the Los Angeles Lakers for the final playoff spot in the west.
Jazz fans, as they have all year, were not silent about Utah's latest flop. Jazz fans sounded off over social media, and the commentary was overall not very complementary to the Jazz down the stretch.
