What to Know

This Saturday, the Brooklyn Nets are hoping to patch up the holes in a defense that has allowed an average of 116.29 points per matchup. They will stay at home another game and welcome the Dallas Mavericks at 8:30 p.m. ET Feb. 27 at Barclays Center. The Nets are out to stop a four-game streak of losses at home.

Everything came up roses for Brooklyn at home against the Orlando Magic this past Thursday as the team secured a 129-92 win. The game was all but wrapped up at the end of the third, by which point Brooklyn had established a 92-72 advantage. It was another big night for their point guard Kyrie Irving, who had 27 points and nine assists in addition to five rebounds.

Meanwhile, the contest between the Mavericks and the Philadelphia 76ers this past Thursday was not a total blowout, but with Dallas falling 111-97 on the road, it was darn close to turning into one. The top scorer for Dallas was point guard Luka Doncic (19 points).

Barring any buzzer beaters, Brooklyn is expected to win a tight contest this past Saturday. They might be worth taking a chance on against the spread as they are currently on an eight-game streak of ATS wins.

When the two teams previously met in January of last year, the Nets lost to Dallas on the road by a decisive 123-111 margin. Maybe Brooklyn will have more luck at home instead of on the road? Watch the game and check back on CBS Sports for all the details.
