MATCHUP TO WATCH
*Mike Conley vs. Jalen Brunson
— In a do-or-die situation for the Jazz, and coming off a rough game in Dallas, it’s expected that Donovan Mitchell will respond with a huge game — but he can’t do it alone. Mike Conley has struggled for most of the series, but he’s a veteran guard capable of taking over so he needs to rise to the occasion. Likewise, Luka Doncic is a star but he needs a running mate, which makes Jalen Brunson very vital to the Mavericks.
