Game 6 - Mavericks @ Nets - Saturday, November 13, 1:00 PM

The Dallas Mavericks come into New Jersey with the best record in the NBA, having handed the Heat their first loss of the season Thursday night. Dirk Nowitzki scored 41 points in Miami, is the league's 3rd leading scorer at 26.7 points per game, and is also grabbing close to 10 boards per game. The Mavs were active with trades this summer, adding Calvin Booth, Erick Dampier, Jerry Stackhouse and Jason Terry through deals. The Nets may miss Ron Mercer for up to a month, but Jason Collins and Travis Best are expected to return to action Saturday. The team may also activate Awvee Storey or Jabari Smith to replace Mercer. They have reportedly agreed to terms with Brandon Armstrong, but have not announced a deal.
