Brooklyn nets win seventh straight at Barclays Center.

Nets Outlast Mavs, Improve to 9-1 in New Year
After a dreadful start to the year and a season-ending injury to star center Brook Lopez, many counted the Brooklyn Nets out.

But since the calendar turned the Nets are an NBA-best 9-1 after outlasting the Dallas Mavericks at the Barclays Center Friday night, 107-106.

Mirza Teletovic led all players with 34 points and was almost unstoppable from three-point range, hitting 7-of-11 threes. The win was their seventh straight in Brooklyn and no team in the league is hotter.

Watch the video above for highlights from the game.

Can the Nets keep it up and cement themselves as one of the top teams in the Eastern Conference behind the Miami Heat and Indiana Pacers? Share your thoughts in the comments section below.
