The four-game losing streak for the Dallas Mavericks is looking like it could be coming to an end as they are up 43-36 over the Utah Jazz at the half. Dirk Nowitzki is leading the way for the Mavericks with 20 points, and Jason Terry has rebounded form his poor game from his two-point performance against the New Orleans Hornets with 10 points in the first half tonight.
The Jazz offense is not doing well as their leading scorer is Paul Millsap who has 10 points. The Mavericks defense is helping them stay ahead of the Jazz and have held them to 39 percent shooting from the field and 0-for-8 from three-point land.
The offense for the Mavericks is not much better, but they have made a trio of three-pointers which is why they are ahead of the Jazz at the half.
Lamar Odom made his return tonight after missing the past three games and has scored two points in seven minutes of action.
