Jim Feist's NBA Comp Pick - Saturday
02/28 08:35 PM EST NBA (509) BROOKLYN NETS VS (510) DALLAS MAVERICKS
Take: (509) BROOKLYN NETS
Reason: Your free play for Saturday, February 28th, 2015 is in the NBA scheduled contest between the Brooklyn Nets and Dallas Mavericks. The Dallas Mavericks made one of the bigger moves at the break, acquiring Amare Stoudemire from the Suns after he was waived. The pickup of Stoudemire was to bolster a bench that had been under performing all season. In fact, the Mavs have had their worst bench scoring since the 2007-08 season. So far the results haven't been so hot as the Mavericks have scored fewer than 100 points in four of their five games since the All-Star break. The Nets sent Kevin Garnett back to Minnesota where his career began for Thaddeus Young. That was the only move that Brooklyn made. The Nets play in a very weak East conference where their 23-32 record actually has them tied for the final playoff spot at this point. However, right now there are five teams within one game of each other for that final spot. The Nets have had some success against the Mavericks, going 4-1 ATS in their last five meetings in Dallas. In addition, the dog is 6-1 ATS in the last seven meetings between these clubs. I'm still not convinced this Dallas team is for real as they appear to have some cohesion issues. The Mavs will also be without forward Chandler Parsons (15.41 ppg, 4.83 rpg) for this one as he will likely sit out with an ankle injury. That will put even more pressure on an already shaky bench. Take the points here with the Nets.
