Utah Jazz 109 - Dallas Mavericks 92 Game Recap: Rudy Gobert, Bryce Cotton demolish Dallas

DAL: 26 - 31 - 12 - 23 -- 92 UTA: 29 - 28 - 30 - 22 -- 109 Where to start? Well the Utah Jazz were facing a #7 seed locked Dallas Mavericks. Rick Carlisle didn't have much to play for and he sat Dirk Nowitzki, Monta Ellis, and Tyson Chandler (Chandler Parsons was already out with injury). Quin Snyder responded by sitting out Gordon Hayward, Derrick Favors, and Trey Burke (Alec Burks was already out too). That's pretty much where the similarities end. The Jazz looked in control of this game, even though the Mavs were close throughout and had the game tied 57 all at the half. Rudy ...

Tyson Chandler looks playoff ready, even if Mavericks aren’t

It was hardly a signature win or even a night when the Dallas Mavericks served notice that they are playoff ready. They aren’t. But Tyson Chandler probably is. The big center ripped down 23 rebounds in the 107-104 victory over …

Tyson Chandler is the most important Dallas Maverick

The Mavericks won't do anything in the playoffs without a completely healthy Tyson Chandler. Someone has been lost in the media storm that has surrounded Rajon Rondo vs. Rick Carlisle, Monta’s struggles, and Dirk showing his age. Someone has begun to be overlooked. It’s funny, because he’s clearly the most important member of the Dallas Mavericks. That someone is Tyson Chandler. On the season, Chandler is averaging 10.1 points and 11.4 rebounds per game. He’s the Mavs’ best rebounder by over five rebounds per game (Dirk is second on the team at 6.0 rebounds per contest). He’s...

The Mavericks have no clue how to guard the Grizzlies' front court

Dallas lost big against the Grizzlies and a lot of it had to do with defensive mismatches. On Sunday night I rewatched parts of the Mavericks' loss to Memphis. I was at that game on Friday and spent half of my time in the press box genuinely confused at how Dallas was attempting to defend the Grizzlies' front court. I wanted to watch it again to confirm I wasn't crazy, and ... welp. Here's the problem: Dirk can guard Kosta Koufas. He cannot guard Marc Gasol, Zach Randolph or Jeff Green. Tyson Chandler can guard Koufas, Gasol and Randolph, but he'll struggle against Green. Amar'e Stoudemire...
