Kevin Garnett is out yet again, for the 12th straight game, as the Nets head south to start a mini three-game road trip against the veteran Dallas Mavericks, who are 14 games above .500 and feature two former Nets.

Dallas, sitting at 42-28 and 7th place in the Western Conference, has won four of five and has Vince Carter and Devin Harris–who shared some time in New Jersey–making for a pretty intriguing Sunday night matchup between two hot teams.

Probable Lineups

BKN- Deron Williams (PG), Shaun Livingston (SG), Joe Johnson (SF), Paul Pierce (PF), Mason Plumlee (C)

DAL- Jose Calderon (PG), Monta Ellis (SG), Shawn Marion (SF), Dirk Nowitzki (PF), Samuel Dalembert (C)

Final Thoughts

Brooklyn is looking for its 4th straight win and needs it to keep pace in the Atlantic Division after the Raptors took a two-game lead with their win today over the Hawks.
