Brooklyn Nets vs. Dallas Mavericks: Preston’s Best Bet

Brooklyn Nets (43-23) will pull up at the American Airlines Center to face off against the Dallas Mavericks (37-28).

The Line: Brooklyn Nets (-142) vs. Dallas Mavericks (+122)

Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant have the Brooklyn Nets headed in the right direction while James Harden is getting healthy for a potential playoff return. Luka Doncic is as pure of a shooter as they come. However, their reliable big-man Kristoff Porzingis is still sidelined with an injury. Maxi Kleber, Tim Hardaway Jr., and Tyrell Terry are listed as day-to-day. Overall Brooklyn comes in healthy into this contest.

Brooklyn gives up a lot on the defensive side of the ball ranking 22nd in points allowed by an opposing team. However, as a unit Brooklyn is shooting the lights out ranking 1st in the NBA in FG%, 5th in 3PT% and 6th in FT%. Brooklyn also has great size in this matchup against the Mavericks.

This Nets team is gelling overall on offense and I have given the Mavericks ample credit over the season. Tonight the Mavericks simply don’t stack up. Mavericks should and will be able to score tonight but down the stretch I expect them to fade.

Preston’s Best Bet: Brooklyn Nets ML (-142)
