Porzingis and Dorian Finney-Smith helped Luka Doncic out with the latter scoring 15 points. Luka himself had 28 points and 9 assists to go with 6 rebounds.

Brooklyn Nets vs Dallas Mavericks prediction
The Nets cannot get enough of Kyrie Irving’s career-high 60 points but they will be without him tonight at the Barclays. However, Kevin Durant and co. should find much momentum against the Mavericks. Except the Mavericks seem to elevate their game with respect to their opponent and will embrace Brooklyn’s challenge.
The Mavericks will win against the Nets in another thrilling close match and end their winning streak.
