Point Spread Prediction:
The Nets have been playing great basketball with an impressive 26-10 in 2014. A closer look at the numbers though shows that Brooklyn’s home schedule is where they have stood out with a 17-2 straight up record while going a moderate 9-8 on the road. Tonight they face a Dallas team that is 23-11 at home and one that should be highly motivated. The Mavericks are in a tight playoff race with Memphis and Phoenix that may go down to the wire making every game of high importance. The Nets took the only meeting this season back in Brooklyn so over confidence should not be a factor for Dallas. The Nets home padded record has the linesmaker over valuing the visitor leaving us with a manageable 4 point line. Take the Dallas Mavericks -4.
