Game 64 - Nets @ Mavericks - Wednesday, March 10, 8:30

The Mavs are hurt but hot.  It's possible the Nets won't face Jason Terry, Erick Dampier, Brendan Haywood, Jose Barea or Tim Thomas when they play in Dallas.  They will face Jason Kidd and they will face Dirk Nowitzki and that was enough for the Mavs to blow out the Timberwolves Monday night.  Now that we've dispensed with how hurt they are, let's talk about how hot they are? They've won 12 straight and are only two and a half games back of the Lakers in the West.  The Nets have been riding Brook Lopez and their three perimeter players--Devin Harris, Courtney Lee and Terrence Williams--this month. With Dallas lacking a shot blocker, they could be making a lot of trips to the painted area.  A Net win would gain them something more than respect.  It could help in the NBA Draft.  The Mavs run has had the effect of dropping the Nets in the draft..  The Dallas pick, owned by the Nets, is now #27 in the first round.
