After a brutal month, the Dallas Mavericks look to finish November strong with a win against a struggling Brooklyn Nets team.

November was tough for the Dallas Mavericks to say the least. While the Mavericks record in the month was better than many expected, it was still a physical and mental toll on this young Dallas team. Over the past month, the Dallas Mavericks hold a record of 4-9. However, it wasn’t easy.

In the month of November the Dallas Mavericks had to face the following teams:

  • Los Angeles Clippers (8-11)
  • New Orleans Pelicans (11-9)
  • Minnesota Timberwolves (12-9)
  • Washington Wizards (11-9)
  • Cleveland Cavaliers (14-7)
  • Oklahoma City Thunder (8-11)
  • San Antonio Spurs (13-7)
  • Milwaukee Bucks (10-9)
  • Boston Celtics (18-4)
  • Memphis Grizzlies (7-12)
  • And tonight, Brooklyn Nets (7-13)

Tonight, the Mavericks will be coming off a loss in a close game against the San Antonio Spurs. But, before the loss to the Spurs came a huge win against the Oklahoma City Thunder. In Saturday’s game against OKC, the Mavericks led by as many as 26 points as they steamrolled the Thunder at the American Airlines Center.

The Brooklyn Nets won’t be as much of a challenge compared to the other teams that Dallas has played in November, but a win is a win.

In a season where the Mavericks will still be able to find their footing, if they even want, Dallas Mavericks fans should be excited about the young talent that this team has. No one knows what direction the Mavericks will take with everything, but whether it is draft or playoffs, MFFLs should be ecstatic.
