Mavericks look to bounce back vs. Jazz

Jan 9, 2007 - 3:00 PM Dallas (27-8) at Utah (24-10) 9:00 pm EST

SALT LAKE CITY (Ticker) -- The Dallas Mavericks look to bounce back after having their impressive winning streak snapped.

With their 13-game run over, the Mavericks aim to start a new streak against the Utah Jazz on Tuesday.

After winning at least 12 games in a row for the second time this season, Dallas has cemented itself as one of the best teams in the NBA.

On Sunday, however, the Mavericks has their season-high 13-game winning streak snapped, dropping a 101-98 decision to the Los Angeles Lakers. Dirk Nowitzki scored 29 points and Josh Howard had 20.

Bidding to tie a club record with its 14th straight win, Dallas squandered a nine-point fourth-quarter lead Sunday.

Prior to its loss to Los Angeles, Dallas' last defeat came the last time it played the Jazz - a 101-79 defeat on December 11. It was just Utah's second win in its last nine games against the Mavericks.

In Utah's last contest on Saturday, Deron Williams had 28 points and 12 assists and Carlos Boozer added 24 points and 11 rebounds in a 96-84 win over Denver. Utah has won three of its last four games and is an NBA-best 14-2 at home.
