It has been 10 seasons since the New Jersey Nets won a game in Dallas. That streak will continue as the Nets lost 102-89 to the Mavericks.

Avery Johnson returned to Dallas where he coached for four seasons. Devin Harris also returned to his old stomping grounds.

Former Net hero Jason Kidd is still playing at a high level for the Mavericks. He controlled the rhythm early even though he didn’t score in the first quarter. His vision on the court is unmatched.

Harris was shaken up early after a fine defensive stop. He seemed to be favoring his left shoulder, but remained in game. Later in the quarter, he was taken back to locker room and did not return after suffering a shoulder sprain.

The Nets kept the score close, but Dallas pulled away to a 30-19 lead after a few consecutive baskets to close out the first.

The Mavericks began to pull away in the second quarter as they opened up an 18-point lead. The Nets got some good minutes off the bench from Terrence Williams, who returned to the team after a brief stint in the D-League. He scored six points in the quarter filling in at point guard for the injured Harris.
