Nets vs Mavericks – Thrilling showdown with a fairytale ending!

The Brooklyn Nets lose to the Dallas Mavericks in a thriller that ended with a buzzer-beater from the Mavericks.

The Brooklyn Nets lost to the Dallas Mavericks today in a thrilling showdown between the 2 teams. Both teams were led by their superstars. Kevin Durant for the Nets and Luka Doncic for the Mavericks. Without Kyrie Irving, who couldn’t play in Barclay’s Center due to the Vaccine Mandate, the pressure was solely on Durant to deliver a win. Unfortunately for him, Luka came prepared and won the matchup between the 2 superstars.

Luka was an assist and a rebound shy of a 30 point triple-double in the game. He had 33 points, 9 assists and 9 rebounds to lead his team to victory. He had help from his teammates Jalen Brunson (18 points), Dwight Powell (12 points), and Spencer Dinwiddie (22 points). The best part of the game was that the game-winner was hit by Spencer Dinwiddie a former Brooklyn Nets player.


Dinwiddie was traded from the Nets to the Wizards and was eventually a part of the Kristaps Porzingis trade. The guard came back to Brooklyn and hit the game-winner against his former team. Dinwiddie has now hit game-winners in consecutive games for the Mavericks. It looks like the Mavericks are the winner in the Porzingis trade.

The Mavericks were trailing by 12 points entering the 4th quarter. In a huge rally from behind, they made a great comeback to seal the deal against the Nets. The Nets were led by Durant’s 23 points and even had 5 other players with double-digit scoring. Ultimately it wasn’t enough to overcome a really good Mavericks team.

The loss brought an end to the Nets’ 4 game win streak. The Nets will have to win at least 10/12 games to have a chance to be a top 6 team. Without Ben Simmons ready to play and Kyrie restricted by the Vaccine Mandates, there is very little hope of that happening. Regardless no one expects the Nets not to make the Playoffs. They most definitely will and will be a nightmare for any of the top teams to face.
