Score: 70-58 Dallas leads. SHEEEEESH pic. com/8nn3WmqVWX — Dallas Mavericks (@dallasmavs) October 7, 2021 The undrafted rookie point guard Carlik Jones scored his first points as a Maverick with a pull-up mid-range jump shot from the elbow. Score: 80-67 Dallas leads. Timeout Dallas, 4:35 left in the quarter: Nearly in every category, Dallas is outplaying Utah. As a team, Dallas is shooting 53 percent from the floor compared to Utah’s 40.
Dallas has stormed back. Led by the bench unit of Kleber and Brunson the Mavericks now lead the game 52-47, forcing the Jazz to take a timeout. Timeout Utah, 3:14 left in the quarter: Kleber has seven points off the bench, and he has only missed one shot in three attempts. Kleber scoring is an added plus, but he’s on the team for the little things he does. But if he can continue this production of the bench, I’m sure Kidd wouldn’t object. Score 52-47 Dallas leads. Bullock’s first points as a Maverick come by way of a 3-pointer at the top of the key.
Score: 32-36 Dallas trails. Dončić woke up this quarter, and he has everything working. A step-back 27-footer looked easy for him; the defender was all over him. Timeout Utah, 6:29 left in the quarter: What was an eight-point lead for Utah was quickly erased by a pair of triples from Dončić and one from Porzingis as well. Dončić just knows how to pile on the points, he’s up to 17 in the game already. Score: 43-41 Dallas trails.
Bullock is looking more comfortable and confident on the floor. He’s hit two threes in tonight’s contest, and the last was from a step in front of the Mavericks logo. Score: 68-58 Dallas leads. 🐂🔒@ReggieBullock35 | #MFFL pic. com/1ibTuZk2jZ — Dallas Mavericks (@dallasmavs) October 7, 2021Timeout Utah, 9:34 left in the quarter: Someone needs to tell Sterling Brown that this is just a preseason game. He just cut baseline and reverse-dunked the ball over Utah’s defender. He’s incredibly athletic when given the space.

Limiting open corner 3-pointers needs to be a priority for the Mavs if they aim to stave off the Jazz for 24 more minutes of in-game action. Third Quarter: Out of the half, Dallas went with its bench unit. On the floor: Sterling Brown, Kleber, Bullock, Brunson, and Boban Marjanovic. It may be a short night for the Dallas starters, but what was seen was encouraging.
