NBA preview and tips: Philadelphia 76ers at Dallas Mavericks
The Philadelphia 76ers, boasting a stellar 40-21 record, travel to the 32-31 Dallas Mavericks on Thursday night, with the Philly team looking to cement their position near top of the NBA standings.
Philadelphia just played consecutive games against Miami, losing the first on their home court before extracting some emphatic road revenge. James Harden and Tyrese Maxey combined for 50 points as the 76ers held their opponents to an extremely low 43.6 per cent shooting from the field. Considering Joel Embiid sat out, winning by 23 was a big effort from Philly.
