Philadelphia 76ers vs Dallas Mavericks: Preview


Game info: 8:30 pm EST in American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas. Check it out on CSN.

I have a cousin named Dallas. I love her very much; she’s like a sister to me. But, tonight, Dallas is the enemy.

The Sixers and Mavs have already met this season in what turned out to be a thriller. Philly welcomed back Elton Brand who nearly led the Mavericks to victory over the Sixers as the Sixers won 100-98. The Mavs are still without Nowitzki so Brand could be leading the charge again.

Meanwhile, the Sixers are on a losing streak. And they haven’t had Jrue Holiday. Holiday has been the Sixers’ best guy all season but they’re hoping he’s able to play tonight. Mavs have lost 3 in a row too.

If Holiday can’t play, Sixers lose. If Holiday plays, Sixers lose, but it would be a close game like before. One glaring thing about that game was the amount of turnovers. If the Sixers keep control of the ball, they’ll be fine. So, we’ll see.
