3 things to watch for when the Mavericks visit the Brooklyn Nets

The Dallas Mavericks (27-35), coming off an embarrassing loss at home to the Memphis Grizzlies Saturday night, head east to face the Brooklyn Nets (32-33).

While the focus is building stronger chemistry with new teammates and giving opportunity to some of the younger players on the roster, grabbing a win Monday night could prove a tall task as they face a Brooklyn squad looking to solidify their playoff spot in the East.

Currently 26th in the league as a team, shooting 34 percent from deep, while taking the third most attempts per game, the Mavs just don’t have consistent shooters.

Since the trade that sent Dennis Smith Jr. to the New York Knicks , rookie Jalen Brunson has assumed his spot in the starting lineup in all but two games.

Add to that him connecting on 38 percent of his three point attempts (a vast improvement from the start of the season), it’s becoming clear in his 28 minutes per game that there is longterm potential there.

No doubt that watching Luka Doncic develop and dominate as a rookie has been the most fun storyline to follow for the Mavericks this season.
