Nets Look to Continue Road Success in Dallas

Brooklyn starts four-game road trip, with strong trends in its favor

One of the toughest things in the NBA is the dreaded road trip. Long plane rides, multiple cities on multiple nights, bad sleep, you name it and that's what NBA players have to go through. Does anyone really like the chaos of flying anyway?

Well the Nets head to Dallas on Tuesday night to start a four-game road trip, and they have actually done very well away from home this year, going 8-2 SU but just 5-5 ATS. It helps that they've already had a brutal trip earlier in the year, spending nine days playing six road games while losing just one.

The Nets clearly don't mind the grind of NBA travel.

Road Warriors

Brooklyn is coming off a loss to the Bulls that saw Kevin Durant look like, well, the normal Durant we'd expect, with 28 points and 10 rebounds. James Harden continues to be a roller coaster ride from hell, though, held to just 14 points on 5-of-21 shooting; he's shooting just 28 percent overall in his last two games.

This is how the season's gone for Harden. One night he scores 12 in a loss to the Suns, then the next game he lights up the Knicks for 34. Clearly not the type of season where you'd want to go in on any props with this type of unpredictability.

There's a reason why Durant is tied for the second-best odds to win MVP (+500), if he can keep this Nets team (16-7, 9-14 ATS) near the top of the east with no Kyrie Irving and sometimes just half of Harden, he deserves every vote.

Mavs' Struggles

Dallas has struggled recently under new coach Jason Kidd, going just 3-7 in their last 10. They've dealt with Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis missing time, along with getting crushed on the boards, now 20th in opponent rebounds per game (46.4).

Teams are also shooting over 47 percent against the Mavs, 27th in the NBA.

The Mavs are at least 6-5 at home this year, but 3-8 ATS. If they don't have a roster at full strength, it'll be hard to see them keeping up with the Durant Show on Tuesday night.
