The Brooklyn Nets and Dallas Mavericks meet Friday in NBA action at the American Airlines Center. Let’s preview this game and give out a pick and prediction.
Brooklyn Nets Betting Preview
The Brooklyn Nets look for their first win after losing their opener to the Cavaliers. The Brooklyn Nets look to avoid their first 0-2 start since the 2015-16 season. The Brooklyn Nets are averaging 113 points on 50 percent shooting and allowing 114 points on 46.8 percent shooting. Cam Thomas is averaging 36 points and 3 rebounds, while Mikal Bridges is averaging 20 points and 6 rebounds. Cameron Johnson is the third double-digit scorer and Dorian Finney-Smith is dishing 2 assists. The Brooklyn Nets are shooting 33.3 percent from beyond the arc and 76.9 percent from the free throw line. The Brooklyn Nets are allowing 39.5 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 50 rebounds per game.
Dallas Mavericks Betting Preview
The Dallas Mavericks look for another win after beating the Spurs in their opener. The Dallas Mavericks look for their first 2-0 start since the 2019-20 season. The Dallas Mavericks are averaging 126 points on 47.5 percent shooting and allowing 119 points on 51.7 percent shooting. Luka Doncic is averaging 33 points and 10 assists, while Kyrie Irving is averaging 22 points and 2 rebounds. Tim Hardaway Jr. is the third double-digit scorer and Grant Williams is grabbing 6 rebounds. The Dallas Mavericks are shooting 31.9 percent from beyond the arc and 73.9 percent from the free throw line. The Dallas Mavericks are allowing 31.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 48 rebounds per game.
The Brooklyn Nets should be eager to get a nasty taste out of their mouth after a tough last second loss to the Cavs in their season opener. I expect the Nets to come out with some energy to right a wrong. The Dallas Mavericks are super talented and a team I'm extremely high on this season, but they also have issues defensively, and that was an issue on Wednesday against the Spurs. It's hard to lay decent sized chalk when a team can't string together stops. Give me the Nets and the points.
