The Dallas Mavericks are looking to keep their winning streak alive and Luka Doncic will be searching for more history as they host the Brooklyn Nets on Monday night. Dallas has won three straight, and their 23-year-old superstar has scored 30-plus in eight straight games to begin the season. Can the Mavs keep both streaks alive as they wrap up their season set against the Nets?
The two teams played an overtime thriller just ten days ago as Luka had a 41-point triple-double in the victory. The Nets have faced plenty of turmoil since, including firing head coach Steve Nash and suspending Kyrie Irving. Brooklyn has won two straight, but can they come to Dallas and win?
