Saturday, January 5 finds the Dallas Mavericks facing the. Philadelphia 76ers as they meet for the first time in the 2018-19 regular season. In their last game on Wednesday, the Mavericks beat the Hornets while the 76ers eeked out a 5 point victory in Phoenix.
Last season, Philly swept the series. The 76ers hold the all-time record with a slim one game advantage over the Mavericks (37 to 36).
The win in Charlotte on Wednesday was just the third road victory for the Mavericks this season. If Dallas could even remotely translate their home prowess and get it to travel they would be securely sitting among the teams seeded in the Western Conference.
To wit, the Mavericks 15-3 home record represents an 83.3% win percentage tying the Nuggets for best home record in the Western Conference.
Diving in a bit deeper It’s hard to understand why the Mavericks struggle outside the American Airlines Center hardcourt. Generally, young teams have the greatest difficulty traveling and winning but Dallas has more veterans than youngsters, therefore, that theory doesn’t fit the norm.
Perhaps it’s because the rookie Luka Doncic is tasked as being the primary ball handler and offensive weapon. And maybe the recent win is signs of the youngster’s progress.
Five players scored in double-digits in the victory over Charlotte. Luka Doncic and Dennis Smith Jr. each scored 18 points to lead the Mavs.
Like their opponent, the 76ers excel on their home court at Wells Fargo Center. Philly sport the second best home win percentage in the Association.
Unlike the Mavs however, the Sixers fare a bit better on the road. In their last 10 games, 7 were road games and the 76ers produced a 4-3 record. Of those wins only the Clippers are a seeded team.
Joel Embiid beasted in the victory over Phoenix scoring 43 points and grabbing 18 rebounds. Three others produced double-digit scoring efforts: Ben Simmons (29), JJ Redick (27) and Furkan Korkmaz (10).
Jimmy Butler (illness) and Wilson Chandler (upper-respiratory infection) both missed the Suns game and are questionable for Saturday.

Free Dallas Mavericks vs. Philadelphia 76ers NBA Prediction:
Following the road team analogy the Mavericks should lose this match. The lone caveat is this is the 76ers first home game following a lengthy west coast trip which typically offers its own hurdles.
Teams are still recovering from travel and have a tendency to be fatigued. This results in lower energy and effort.

Regardless of the first game back – energy jinx, Philly’s home court dominance trumps the Mavericks road woes.
