  Jazz vs. Mavericks on NBA Christmas Day: Live stream info, watch online, TV channel, odds, start time, pick These teams are headed in opposite directionsThe aesthetics match the numbers. The No. 20-ranked Dallas offense has been as unimaginative as it has been ineffective. The Mavs are posting up more than they should, settling for mid-range jumpers and getting some of the worst basketball of Luka Doncic's career. Even as they await the returns of several key players out in the NBA's health and safety protocols, perhaps a midseason date with the Jazz will do the Mavericks some good. Utah is on the cutting edge of NBA offense now and it's up to Dallas, and the rest of the NBA, to catch up.

On Wednesday, the Jazz and Nuggets will meet for the second time this season.

Utah is quietly among the best teams in the league, with its 27-10 record good for third in the league and just a few games off the top-seeded Warriors. The Jazz come into this game having won 15 of their last 18.

One of only two teams to rank in the top five on offense and defense (fifth), the Jazz's league-best offence is sparked by their league-best 3-point shooting - top six in makes (first) and efficiency. On defense, their play is still anchored by French center Rudy Gobert. He is averaging 15.5 points while leading the league in rebounding (15.1) and field goal percentage (70.6%).
