Utah Jazz pull away in the fourth quarter and beat the Dallas Mavericks 104-92.
Paul Millsap played well again in his second start putting up 25-9 with 4 blocks.
Kirilenko is continuing to play his best basketball in five years and finished with 13-8-3-4.
D-Will showed why he will be playing in the all star game with 18 points and 15 assists. Williams also added seven rebounds. In all, the Jazz had six players in double figures and held a Dallas team which has been averaging 113 points a game to 16 points in the fourth quarter. The Jazz have now won their sixth straight game and tenth game in there last eleven. Seven of those wins have come over playoff teams (Dallas twice, Miami, Cleveland, San Antonio, Phoenix, and Portland). With the win the Jazz pulled within a half game of third place in the west. They also won the season series with Dallas. Up next the Jazz play Portland who they have beaten twice this season.
I was also looking at Denver’s schedule for the month of February and if the Jazz continue to win they have a good shot at over taking Denver by the end of the month. Denver plays the Lakers twice, both at LA, Phoenix, at Utah, Dallas, San Antonio, at Cleveland, and at Boston.
